Jaffe: Twisted Metal delay not tied to Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3 or others

XMNR: David Jaffe and Eat Sleep Play revealed last week that Twisted Metal had been delayed to early 2012 so that they could take some more time under the hood of the PS3 exclusive to polish it up. Jaffe later when on to expand on the specific items they are looking to fix in the game but some have apparently said the delay was due to the line-up of blockbuster games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 releasing around the same time. This sent Jaffe off on a bit of a rant to further explain the delay.

True fans will buy this game regardless of whether or not it is released alongside the aforementioned games (unless they can't afford to buy >1 game).

Oh how I have waited for thee TM. This is going to be amazing!

Yeah right, I have nothing against the game but TM has no hype, Im sure diehard fans disagree. The point is the genre just isnt as fresh like in the ps2 days, its become very niche type of game. I doubt whenever it releases that it will have huge sales, Im not knocking the game itself, if you love it buy it, but it doesnt take a rocket scientist to see it just cant compete with the onslaught of blockbuster games starting in Sept. Jaffe is no fool and he's about as believable as a politician discussing taxes in a election campaign trying to deny this delay has NOTHING to do with other releases. btw, I dont think a delay vs moving your release date for better marketing/sales makes you look any better or worse as a dev.

You said it yourself, its a very niche type of game. Hence why true fans will buy this regardless of what is being released around it.

JokesOnYou2266d ago (Edited 2266d ago )

Niche fans of TM will buy it but that generally is a small audience, every dev whether conceding his game is niche or not wants/hopes to broaden its fanbase, that certainly isnt going to happen if you release a lower tier marketed game during a holiday storm of big budget games. Every gamer has at least a few niche or nostalgia games they will buy, however we ALL have our next big blockbusters, of course we want it all but budget constraints dictate choices which means some games dont make the list.....the old "I'll pick up later list" is full of deserving games that fell victim to heavy CURRENT competition, only never to be bought due to future blockbusters. Listen every game loses sales to the competition, but the reality is niche games will take an even worst beating against these giants, well unless you dont believe devs of niche games are just in it for "the love of gaming" and dont care about maximizing their profits, lol.

"Twisted Metal delay not tied to Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3 or others"

Of course there going to say that. Whatever the reason is, I'm sure Jaffe being a prudent business man is relieved that TD isn't coming out in this jam packed fall season.

Not to mention some people's wallets. Too many games and not enough cash :/

"Too many games and not enough cash"

Nor enough time to play them all!

"Not to mention some people's wallets. Too many games and not enough cash :/"

Yeah, I don't have the time or the cash to play all these games. The only game I'm getting this fall is UC3. Everything else will have to wait.

AutoCad2266d ago

Ya right...
Just release the game.The Twisted Metal fans will buy it over COD OR Uncharted.

TheLastGuardian2266d ago (Edited 2266d ago )

If Twisted Metal came out this year and I could only buy 1 game, you better believe I'd buy Twisted Metal. F*ck all those other games.

Twisted Metal looks like a better game than BF3, MW3, UC3, Gears 3, Skyrim, you name lt. Twisted Metal looks like the greatest game ever made. I don't understand why anyone would skip Twisted Metal, no matter what time of year it's released.

Twisted Metal is such a must buy, Twisted Metal deserves way more hype than it's getting. If only more people understood how great Twisted Metal was, TM would be thier most anticipated game like it is mine. Damnit Sony, you need to start hyping your best exclusive more, give Twisted Metal the sales it deserves.
