David Jaffe gives 360-owning Twisted Metal fan a PS3

What happens if you're an Xbox 360 fanboy, and a Twisted Metal fanboy? Unfortunately, you won't be able to play the new PS3-exclusive Twisted Metal game. That is, unless you happen to catch the eye of series creator David Jaffe.

Recently, Twitter user mayham_stone050 posted a message asking if Twisted Metal would ever be coming to the Xbox 360. Jaffe took it upon himself to reply, saying that it was "just for PS3 users." After commenters on Destructoid got a hold of the story, Jaffe responded in defense of his preference for Sony, writing in a barrage of tweets:

"Holy f**k, Destructoid Xbox only owners out in full force against me. WTF? I can't have an opinion? It's not that we would not LOVE to have our games in every home in the world...even the ones w/out electricity. F**k it- we don't care! It's just that we value our relationship with Sony very, very much. They give us extra time to make the game great, lots of creative and marketing and business support. And we like the people over there tons; they are like family. Why is it so hard to understand we'd like 2 stay in that kind of working relationship?"

Whether or not Jaffe is allowed to have an opinion aside (the internet says 'no,' generally), he is allowed to be a pretty cool guy. Jaffe tracked down the anonymous gamer who had originally asked the question, found out he did not own a PS3 and then managed to hook him up with the Sony console completely gratis.

To let everyone know of his charitable feat, Jaffe posted to Twitter: "To those wondering: we got in touch with our 360 owning New Yorker so he's getting the PS3. Thanks!"

Pretty cool, Jaffe. I guess some Twitterers are just at the right place at the right time. I wonder if I could get a free Xbox 360 if I asked Bungie about Halo coming to the Wii...

    I bought a PS3 just for Twisted Metal. I have every game in the series.

    "I wonder if I could get a free Xbox 360 if I asked Bungie about Halo coming to the Wii..." Worth a try! I mean I'm a ps3 guy but from what my friends tell me, Bungie really likes its community.

    This is kinda funny actually. From "sorry bro, you need a different console" to "fuck everyone else, this guy's getting a PS3 just cause he wasn't a total douchnozzle". Ah, stories like this make me happy to have a net connection.

    Damn I'm broke, and I'm a TM fan, but I wouldn't be able to afford it, that is if I remain jobless when it comes out.
  • SonicX_89 - December 2, 2010 1:58 a.m.

    I'm an Infamous fan, and I only own a 360. So, Sucker Punch...
  • Sy87 - December 2, 2010 1:34 a.m.

    Man what about all the other 360 owners. What a jerk. Granted MS are probably a bunch of d bags after I'm beginning to learn, But I still love my 360 just not the company too much. I say we just make a real life twisted metal. Come on I know you want to rig out a care with a gattling gun and some rockets.

    Right, so we take down Jaffe, and then on to Molyneux. Got it?

    and people say the games industry is just money hungry bastards, this guy proves them wrong, it has cool guys, now off to see if he'll give me a free copy of twisted metal

    David Jaffe = Cool Dude

    Its nice to hear about a developer who really cares about his relationship with a company and his reasons for making exclusives for their console. Problem is, there may be many more people bugging Jaffe (or even other developers) on Twitter trying to get free consoles. He might have opened a potential floodgate of scroungers unfortunately...

    Hey Blizzard, I love Starcraft 2 more than anything yet my computer that runs it plays like shit. I'm not saying you guys know a lot about making high-end custom PCs or anything, but you know. Just saying, I bought the original Starcraft when it came out in 1998, even when it was still rated M.

    meh, they screwed the Twisted Metal franchise so i coulndt care less if it was on 360 or not. when they take the series back to CAR combat i might think about gettin a PS3. this just looks like an over the top darker version of saints row.
  • Redeater - December 1, 2010 10:22 p.m.

    @IMO I strongly disagree with that!
  • hardcore_gamer1990 - December 1, 2010 10:20 p.m.

    Having an opinion on the internet is always a bad plan...
