Pachter: My Twisted Metal Comment Is "Purely Conjecture"

You may have heard analyst Michael Pachter supposedly outing Eat Sleep Play's new project, revealing it as a new Twisted Metal despite David Jaffe's recent claims that he's certainly not working on any such title.

Now, Pachter admits to his erroneous statement, saying that it was just "a guess." He has clarified to Eurogamer that what he previously said about a new TM being a big title for Sony wasn't based on inside information. Everyone was getting very excited but it appears we're not allowed to get all pumped up because Pachter "knows nothing" about Jaffe's new project. Said the Wedbush Morgan industry analyst:

"I know nothing about what David [Jaffe] is working on, other than that it is a 'really great game', according to him, but I suppose that goes without question. My Twisted Metal comment is purely conjecture, it's the game I hope he's working on, but I do not have confirmation from him about it, and have not been briefed by anyone under NDA.

It wasn't a slip, it was an intentional comment, and it is just my best guess as to what he's working on. For the sake of the gaming community, I hope I'm right."

Well, damn. We were kinda hoping that would be considered concrete proof and for a while, everyone was assuming that Pachter had accidentally made the announcement we've all been waiting for. Incidentally, after the mistake, Jaffe Tweeted that what the analyst said was "a joke" and he remains adamant that he's not working on a new Twisted Metal. 'sigh'

A new twisted metal would rock, but I have faith in Jaffe. Whatever he's working on has to be damn good.

Oh silly Pachter, if only we could all get paid to make guesses.

I would also like to formally request a new picture of this bozo, something from the goofy variety please.

Before you guys jump all over this guy about his lousy predictions, and that he is worthless, I seem to remember an article recently where he states that he gives Insomniac a hard time about not going multiplat, and that they are crazy not to do so. The comment section was alive with ridicule, and that Insomniac would NEVER go multiplat, and this guy is an idiot.

Hmmm, few weeks later... Insomniac? Yep, becomes multiplat developer.

I hope TM won't go multiplat. I Love TM and hope this will be amazing. I just know that it's the game there working on.
I mean it has to be... right?

I think Twisted Metal is gonna be a secret until it is released. Just straight up on the shelf for sale and no one new.

Ya know something?
I really got to hand it to Pachter this time.

He's just as great at back-pedaling, as he is at pure conjecture!

If Jaffe pops up later this year to tell us that it actually IS a new TM he's been making, he's REALLY going to look like an idiot.

"...it's the game I hope he's working on"

Even the mighty Pachter wants a new Twisted Metal.
