Twisted Metal Will Include TM Black For A Limited Time

The holidays are a time for giving and receiving presents, and Eat Sleep Play co-founder David Jaffe just delivered a big gift to all the long-time Twisted Metal followers.

As you should already know, the Twisted Metal reboot arrives on February 14. But in a special Christmas message posted at the PlayStation Blog, Jaffe made a fantastic announcement that should give everyone more incentive to pick up his latest project on Valentine's Day. ...as if the new game isn't incentive enough, right?

That's right; the first run of the upcoming title will include the PS2 classic, Twisted Metal: Black, which launched back in June of 2001. Therefore, nearly a decade after the game wowed gamers everywhere, Black will return as a free bonus for everyone who's willing to dive into the dark, twisted world once more. Jaffe says he doesn't know how long that first run of copies will last, so make sure to grab the game ASAP!

If you're unfamiliar, yes, Black totally ruled.

I'll make sure to buy this early now. Thus, the announcement had the desired effect (at least for this consumer).

Black is a masterpiece in both gameplay and the twisted and dark stories that Jaffe created. This is just icing on the freaking cake at this point for Twisted fans such as myself.

I still have Black so I really don't need another copy of it.

Honestly, it really doesn't matter much. Wherever they sell video games.

I could be wrong, but I just don't think this game is going to do so well. I know it's not scientific or anything but I have noticed this game has almost zero buzz. I have noticed threads related to this game are about as active as Resistance 3's were. Probably even less so. That game flopped big time despite good reviews so I'm not so sure reviewers can save it even if it is good. Vehicular combat has been a dead genre for years.

Exactly what I'm afraid of but, if the online multi-player is any good, there might be salvation for it yet. Time will tell...

This game might just save the whole vehicular combat genre. Looks to be pretty fantastic, also mainstream enough to bring in some new fans

Sony is partly to blame for there being no buzz about the game. It was really being hyped up back when it was supposed to be out in October, then they pushed it to February and haven't mentioned a word about it. I mean I have millions of sweet ideas for commercials and stuff. I really hope it sells well. Playstation exclusives never seem to sell that well, in relation to xbox exclusives that is.

This will be a great game and lots of fun but because it's not a well known game it will fail miserably unfortunetly :s
Sony needs to start hyping it up everywhere!
Lots of people don't even know what Twisted Metal actually is.
