Jaffe Hopes Twisted Metal Can Ultimately Sell 1-2 Million
We hope you're planning on purchasing Twisted Metal when it drops on Valentine's Day. Eat Sleep Play could certainly use your support.
Co-founder David Jaffe has gone on record saying he hopes the game will sell 1-2 million copies. He added that for the game to be profitable, it needs to at least double the sales of Twisted Metal: Black.
Now, that should be doable. The industry has grown exponentially, and the PS3 userbase is much larger than the PS2's was when Black released back in 2001 (the PS2 launched in late October of 2000 in the US). If the game does appear to be a hit, the team will start working on extra content; until then, however, they haven't planned anything specific in terms of DLC (or so it would appear). Lastly, a PlayStation Vita version of the game could get done if enough gamers respond to the PS3 version.
Jaffe also clarified a few points of interest: unfortunately, Twisted Metal will not boast PlayStation Move or 3D support, as had been rumored by some sources. He said they would've liked to have included 3D, but they just didn't have the manpower. Lastly, while there will be co-op, there will be no online co-op for the story mode. Oh well; we always had more fun playing TM titles with a buddy sitting next to us on the sofa, anyway.
