About a "motor-mouthed outsider" in an apocalyptic wasteland
Twisted Metal is one of the oldest and most iconic first-party PlayStation franchises – and now it’s officially getting its own television show. There have been murmurs regarding this project for years now, but Variety has revealed that it’s officially moving forward at long last...
Sweet Tooth is back
Sony's overnight investor meeting included a Q&A portion, and according to one thread over on ResetEra, it was announced that the recently formed PlayStation Productions is working on a Twisted Metal TV series. Apparently revealed by Tony Vinciquerra on-stage, the project recently began production - meaning we probably won't...
Creator David Jaffe weighs in
Twisted Metal maker David Jaffe has weighed in on the state of the franchise, releasing a video as response to the “numerous” daily tweets he receives from fans asking about the future of the car combat series. In the ten minute clip, he makes clear that he doesn’t own the brand and so any decisions about its...
We've known for a while that Eat Sleep Play's upcoming Twisted Metal reboot would be getting a demo -- but we certainly didn't expect it to be dropping quite so soon
Outlined on Sony's Official PlayStation Blogcast podcast, senior social media specialist, Sid Shuman, has confirmed that fans will get to sample the car combat exclusive from January 31st when a demo races onto the PlayStation Store..
If you're wondering what this Twisted Metal lark is all about, first of all: where have you been since 1995?
Living under a rock? We sort of get it; Eat Sleep Play's upcoming PS3 Twisted Metal reboot is the first proper entry into the series since 2005's Twisted Metal: Head On, so we suppose it's possible that the series might have eluded you until now. (And yes, we realise that Twisted Metal: Head..
Twisted Metal's gone gold -- and to celebrate the game's impending Valentine's Day release date, Eat Sleep Play's released the first image of Sweet Tooth as he'll appear in the upcoming multiplayer shooter Starhawk
Those of you that pick up a copy of next month's car combat reboot will snatch up a voucher for the Sweet Tooth skin, which will allow you to play as the creepy clown in Lightbox..
God Of War is a world-renowned franchise, but things were almost very different
Before Kratos' mythological escapades got the go-ahead, developer Sony Santa Monica was toying with the idea of a Silent Hill-style survival horror title set within the dark realm of the Twisted Metal universe. Game designer David Jaffe revealed the tid-bit on the Weekend Confirmed podcast, though he didn't delve into..
The oldest franchise in PlayStation history is finally ready for its return on PS3, as developer Eat Slep Play has just announced that its upcoming Twisted Metal reboot has gone gold
For those not up-to-date with industry terminology, "gold" is the term attached to game code that is fully completed and ready for manufacturing. In short: the game's probably being printed onto blank Blu-ray..
David Jaffe's video blog is always a source of legitimate fun
Watching the God Of War creator devolve into a sub-human state as the release of Twisted Metal release nears has been a genuine source of pleasure for us. We don't mean that in a nasty way; moreover that we enjoy Jaffe's personality, and love the passion that he so clearly brings to everything he does. In a slightly reserved video blog..
If you've ever stayed up late, huddled around a PlayStation controller, pumping bullet holes in Sweet Tooth's delightfully creepy ice-cream truck; then you'll understand what David Jaffe means when he says multiplayer is at the heart of Twisted Metal
Responding to a fan on Twitter, Jaffe said of the upcoming PS3 reboot: To keep expectations in check, know this [about Twisted Metal's..
Talk about timing
We had a horrible thought this morning that Twisted Metal might get delayed in the UK. After all, the game's US Valentine's Day release date was announced a long time ago, but SCEE has kept relatively tight-lipped about the car-combat title's launch overseas. Better late than never though, as the platform holder's just confirmed to MCV that the Eat Sleep Play developed racer will..
In a delightfully scatty video blog, David Jaffe, the creative force behind Twisted Metal and God Of War, has announced that all first-print editions of Twisted Metal for the PlayStation 3 will include a downloadable voucher for Twisted Metal: Black
Twisted Metal: Black originally launched on the PlayStation 2 way back in 2001, and was critically...
Sony's Twisted Metal reboot continues to up the stakes
Having a vehicle armed to the teeth with rockets and chainsaws is all well and good — but try using them effectively against the The Brothers Grimm. You'll be lucky if you manage to scratch the paint-work of their ridiculously oversized monster trucks.
Legendary PlayStation developer David Jaffe has indicated he'd prefer it if his upcoming Twisted Metal reboot didn't ship with an Online Pass code
The developer told Eurogamer: Id actually prefer [it if we didn't do an Online Pass], even though its probably good business. Only because we have such a mountain to climb in terms of gaining peoples good faith, especially in Europe, and really..
David Jaffe has broken his silence on the rumoured Sony mascot brawler said to be in development at SuperBot Entertainment
Leaks over the weekend revealed development snaps of the project, which featured two of David Jaffe's characters: Sweet Tooth and Kratos. Prompted on Twitter, Jaffe claimed that while he knew nothing about the project, he hoped that it was real. Four folks asking if I know..
Hot off the heels of yesterday's Valentine's Day release date announcement, Eat Sleep Play's released a brand new trailer for its upcoming Twisted Metal reboot
We have to say, our anticipation grows more and more with each new piece of footage released. The latest trailer focuses on Dollface, everyone's favourite glitter-haired psycho. Enter amazing (and mildly disturbing) FMV, featuring said..
Alone on Valentine's Day? Not Anymore
Eat Sleep Play's David Jaffe has targeted the day of love for a day of carnage as the Twisted Metal release date. In a video blog release, Jaffe explains Eat Sleep Play's entrance into "crunch mode" to reach the new deadline following Twisted Metal's delay earlier this year. "With this extra time we've just been pouring this tuning and tweaking..
Twisted Metal's no longer releasing in October
The game's due out in "early 2012" now. Part of the reason for the delay is because David Jaffe and his Eat Sleep Play team want to ensure Twisted Metal is the best game it possibly can be. The extra months are really needed for polish and we feel we need more than four to six weeks of polish and tuning," Jaffe wrote in a statement..
In an extremely earnest post on the PlayStation Blog, Eat Sleep Play's David Jaffe has revealed that Twisted Metal will not hit its October release date
Jaffe's reason was as candid as ever, the game is "just not ready yet". The game will instead launch in "early 2012". As disappointing as the news is, it's really hard to be frustrated with the team's intentions. Jaffe noted on..
The bigger story here is that Twisted Metal was originally gunning for a Teen rating in the US, with David Jaffe and his Eat Sleep Play team gunning for the lower rating in order to reach a wider audience
But the studio's since decided that a Mature rating is more appropriate for the Twisted Metal franchise, and we couldn't agree more. "Without blood, it felt a little weird, frankly,"..
NeoGAF's stumbled upon some new B-roll footage for Twisted Metal
The game has come on leaps and bounds since its unveiling at last year's E3. The game is a real visual spectacle now, with tons of detail on the weapons. It's super chaotic, just like Twisted Metal should be. This game is still floating under the radar too much for our liking. It looks incredible.
Eat Sleep Play's David Jaffe is one of the most honest figures in the gaming industry
It's hard not to be entranced by the developer's no-nonsense style of discussion. If you haven't had a chance to listen to chat on GiantBomb's E3 special podcast, you really should. He's a fascinating character. Having said that, we think Jaffe puts himself down a little too easily at times. It's worrying to us..
David Jaffe has said that he won't pander to European tastes in order to make the Twisted Metal franchise more popular in the region
As Brits, we're thinking "thank goodness for that". Twisted Metal is all about balls-to-the-wall mayhem with the deeper, technical layer hidden beneath all the carnage. We'd never want Jaffe to take that away. What were not going to do is go how do we..
Before you take a cartwheel into the road outside your house, let's make one point absolutely clear: Sony Santa Monica works as a micro-publisher within SCEA
It supports smaller developers getting to grips with the PlayStation hardware, and has an input in second-party development. In short: while Sony Santa Monica might have eight games at E3, not all of them will be developed by the God Of War..
Maybe it's because we're complete and utter car-combat fanboys, but this Twisted Metal trailer has us sitting at our desk grinning like a Cheshire Cat
It starts off decent enough, with the terrible over-produced FMV we've come to love from the Twisted Metal franchise. Then it gets better with the introduction of Sweet Bot. But that ending, man. That ending. We're going to recommend you sit and..
Twisted Metal gets better the more we see of it
GameTrailers has got some videos from Sony's recent demonstration of the game in April. In the video David Jaffe explains some of the more intricate elements of the mechanics and the design. It looks like the game's going to be a super deep multiplayer experience. We're totally up for the chaos and...
This extended Twisted Metal trailer gives us a better look at the car combat game's messed up FMV sequences
While Sweet Tooth's victim has been edited out after rumours, this trailer is still pretty messed up. We've no idea what's going on, we just know everyone's dead weird. We assume they're going to sort out their anger by blowing each other up in ice cream trucks. Sony's announced that those..
To be perfectly honest, we've been a little bit worried about Twisted Metal
We've seeen very little gameplay footage since the title's E3 reveal, and even the typically outspoken David Jaffe has been quiet over the last couple of months. But with the latest Twisted Metal trailer, everything makes sense. The Eat Sleep Play have really been working hard. And its evidenced in the footage embedded..
A forum post on Gamekult has been gathering traction across the 'net this morning
The supposed post details much of Sony's E3 announcement plans, as well as some specifics beyond. The leak hints that an NGP price and release date will be announced at E3, in addition to the device's real name. Seven first-party titles are set to be announced for the device alongside the reveal. In addition, Hideo..
Twisted Metal is coming back this year, and we can't wait
Sure we might be in the minority, but there really is nothing better than a slice of car combat for serious competitive multiplayer fun. We sound like a shill, but it's true. And it's been so long since a good developer has sat down and said, "Let's make a really good car combat game." Twisted Metal might be niche in this era, but..
We should have got a bunch more information about Eat Sleep Play's Twisted Metal reboot as part of GDC last week, but unfortunately the game was a complete no-show
In response to speculation surrounding the game's disappearance, David Jaffe has taken to his blog to explain that the showing was pulled in favour of a less-busy window. "We were...

Someone get David Jaffe on the phone
Someone get Sony on the phone. Someone get Columbia Pictures on the phone. This Twisted Metal movie trailer might be fan-made, but we'd pay to go and see the full version. </em>
Y'know what's most bizarre -- that Twisted Metal (the original PSone title) isn't on the PlayStation Store yet
Perhaps it makes sense in Europe, but in America we'd expect the game to already be there. Looks like it's coming though; the American ratings board, ESRB, has slapped a "Teen" rating on the classic car combat title for PS3 and PSP. If it comes to Europe (which it probably..
David Jaffe's addressed some fan concerns regarding the roster of Eat Sleep Play's upcoming Twisted Metal reboot
While reaction has been extremely positive, Jaffe notes on his blog that some fans have been concerned by the limited number of characters in the game's campaign. Worry not, however, as Jaffe's got words of reassurance: "Please keep in mind this Twisted Metal single player and co-op..
David Jaffe's confirmed during a Comic-Con panel last night that the Twisted Metal reboot will be getting split-screen multiplayer
However, the game won't be supporting 3D or PlayStation Move, something the crowd were presumably pretty stoked to hear (why you'd want less optional features in a game is beyond us). There's a full break-down of what happened at the panel through here. Kotaku's also..
David Jaffe's revealed that Eat Sleep Play's upcoming Twisted Metal reboot started life "as a PSN title"
According to Jaffe however, Sony wanted more from the product, so the team came up with a "drastic, dramatic change" in concept. "Well, it started out as a PSN title. It started out as a very small version of Twisted Metal that was not just for the hardcore fans, but it really..
If we had to list our favourite PlayStation characters in order, Sweet Tooth would be somewhere around the latter half of the top-ten
The dude's a clown with fire for hair. What's not to like about that? To celebrate the announcement that Sony are to reboot the Twisted Metal franchise next year, they're releasing some premium DLC for Modnation...
David Jaffe's confirmed (though we're not sure if we can trust that guy) that his newly announced Twisted Metal reboot will be getting a panel at ComicCon this year
So, if you want to know why Sweet Tooth's hair is on fire, you'll never get a better chance. He's also revealed that there's a possibility the game might be playable at PAX, but no word as to whether the game will appear at GamesCom..
Amazingly, we'd actually talked ourselves out of Twisted Metal on the PlayStation 3 being a thing
We knew Jaffe was working on something that involved car combat, but we'd given up on that project being Twisted Metal. We'd certainly given up on it making an appearance at this year's E3. But appear it did, in somewhat glorious fashion, and the PushSquare office was prone to the odd squeal of..
Eat Sleep Play's new Twisted Metal game is clearly fairly early in development, but it's still looking damn amazing.
The game gives us the faintest whiff of Warhawk to be honest — mostly in the game's visual style, but it's also apparent from the striking depth of the multiplayer. The cars look like they handle really well, and the chaotic nature of the multiplayer is clearly still existent here..
Twisted Metal is one of the oldest, most recognisable PlayStation franchises out there
Despite being shunned aside by bigger franchise power-houses in PlayStation's history (the likes of Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid), Sony's E3 press conference spelled out quite categorically that Twisted Metal is truly back in bombastic style...
One of the best highlights of this year's E3 was unveiling of Twisted Metal -- a game that David Jaffe had somehow thrown us off the scent
We truly believed it wasn't coming. But then, right at the end of that E3 conference, Sweet Tooth. The game's looking just as chaotic as it should, which perhaps didn't translate quite as good as it should during Sony's press conference. Which is why, this E3..
During Sony's press conference last night, they revealed that David Jaffe and his team at Eat Sleep Play are indeed working on a new Twisted Metal game, with much of the original team still intact
With an on-stage Sweet Tooth, Jaffe and co demoed some of Twisted Metal's new 16-player multiplayer features. An exciting new addition to the franchise is the inclusion of helicopters, so you'll be..
We've seen the future and it involves flipped cars, burning rubber and falling buildings
With the help of an on-stage Sweet Tooth, Sony confirmed today that Eat Sleep Play are working on a new Twisted Metal game for the PlayStation 3. A series of multiplayer demos showed just how deep and technical Jaffe and his team are going with the new version of the game, which includes 16-player online..
