Twisted Metal’s excellent PlayStation 3 reboot is officially a year old this week, and Sweet Tooth is planning to commemorate the event by washing his polka dot pants. Apparently, they’ve got a bit messy over the past 12 months – we’ve told him to be careful where he squirts the strawberry sauce.

While the killer clown’s laundry is of little interest to you, you may be more concerned with the franchise’s recently announced sale. Starting today and running for one week only, you’ll be able to pick up Twisted Metal (PSone), Twisted Metal 2 (PSone), Twisted Metal: Black (PS2), and the aforementioned PS3 entry for just $39.99 from the PlayStation Store. As series creator David Jaffe points out: “That’s a lot of depraved vehicle combat for very little cash.”

If you don’t want the full set, each title will be available at a slashed price point, too. Excuse us while we stock up on gasoline and grenades – we’ve got a tournament to win.
