Jaffe: Here, You Need A PS3 To Play Twisted Metal
Just as a reminder, Twisted Metal will only be available on the PlayStation 3. It's another in a long line of top-notch exclusives; i.e., reasons to own Sony's machine.
But David Jaffe and Eat Sleep Play are aware that some people don't yet own a PS3. So, to remedy the situation - at least in regards to one lucky gamer - they've decided to hand out a PS3...no joke. After a fan asked Jaffe if the new TM iteration would arrive on the 360 (and we all know the answer to that), Jaffe decided to get into the spirit of giving. Thanks to Eat Sleep Play and Sony Santa Monica, Jaffe has arranged for the fan to get a free PS3; you can check out all the ongoing details at the legendary developer's Twitter page. So basically, someone asked if a certain game would be coming to their console, they received an answer they probably didn't want to hear, and the designer gave that person the console they needed. How freakin' sweet is that? Maybe this could be the start of a new trend. Maybe more developers should take the proactive approach and supply hard-up gamers with the necessary system, thereby decreasing the level of whining and fanboy idiocy. Talk about an act of charity that's good for the whole...
But don't expect Jaffe and Co. to do this more than once. I'm sure a lot of people are gonna try, though.
