Jaffe And Co. To Remain Exclusive To PlayStation Platform

We're all assuming that Eat Sleep Play, founded by industry vets David Jaffe and Scott Campbell, are working on a new Twisted Metal. However, some have asked the following question: "Considering the independence of that studio, can't they develop for anyone they wish?"

And of course, the follow-up question to that is, "doesn't this mean that Jaffe and Co. will make games for the other major consoles?" Well, according to the man himself, the answer to that - at least for the time being - is a resounding "no." In addressing the subject at hand, the following reply popped up over at this Twitter page:

"We have great, long term relationships with Sony and we’re fans of the Playstation ‘art meets commerce’ DNA. We may work on other platforms one day, but we’ll gratefully stay Sony exclusive as long as they will have us. It’s an honor to be published by Sony’s 1st party given the classics they have brought to the industry over the years.”

Now, one could make something out of that Twisted Metal wallpaper but at this point, it's probably unnecessary. The point is that if there is indeed another series installment headed our way, it will certainly be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. It's not exactly surprising, though; Sony essentially gave Jaffe a career and helped make him one of the most respected and recognizable developers out there today. And where would the gamers be without Twisted Metal and God of War?

You are correct, sir...

Instead of buying exclusives...

its awesome that sony provides an open platform for developers to put things out on. sony has always had the most diverse selection of games i have seen. glad another developer has chosen to stay where life is good.

Seems he's got too much free time in his hands and is not using it to make games, just blog the hell out of my patience :(

Some folks think Mario and Zelda are played out, but at least there are 3 to 5 years in between console installments of those series.

Halo on the other hand has something come out every year as of late.

That's what I love about Sony. So many great games.

Can't wait to see their game at E3!

And loyalty is good, specially if it allows for creativity.

Playstation has always been where experiments are performed. Other than Nintendo, Sony really is the one company which allows the most amount of different games to flourish*

Microsoft on the other hand mostly pays for more FPSs and "realistic" games

Great news Sven, but I don't envy you in about 13 years. Teenage girls drive their dads nuts what with them going out of the house wearing Juicy shorts and what not. Good luck to you sir. Thankfully I won't have that headache, I have two boys. I will just be worring about them getting girls pregnant.

Your life will never be the same. =)
