David Jaffe Clarifies Twisted Metal Delay in Europe and Content Cuts

MP1st - "Last night, David Jaffe announced on a live stream that Twisted Metal was pushed back in Europe due to content cuts needed for the region. Today, Jaffe has taken to NeoGAF to clarify why the game is delayed, and shed some light on the content cuts."

The story is too old to be commented.

"For example, in the scene we’ve released on the net from the intro- where the girl stabs Tooth in the eye- the SCEE version has this but we cut away right before the scissors make contact with Tooth’s face. It’s CLEAR what she’s doing and I think we even keep the sound effects in and such- but the last few frames are gone"

REALLY....whats wrong with that, look at Dead Space and the amount of gore that was in that, yet the game got a pass in Europe. Honestly I know it's not Davids fault but come on SCEE, you give us the short end of the stick on everything, I mean fair enough this isn't a big deal but when you add up all the things we get shafted on it's like one big slap to the face to PS3 owners in know the place with the highest PS3 install base.

Does anyone know if Europe will be getting Twisted Metal Black ?

Well in Dead Space it's actually "Aliens" that suffer from the violence, so I guess it's alright. This is a girl stabbing a "clown" in the eye. But I get what you're saying.

Yes Twisted Metal Black will be in the EU version.
But it's the 2001 cut edition (EU)

Thank You for answering....I was unsure since most sites on google said it was and others said it wasn't

In this kind of moments i'm glad i don't live in Europe

Not a big deal.

I'm betting it was cuts demanded by Germany that have lead to this. They are far more strict on this sort of thing. I think Dead Island has only just got approved for release over there.

And as Jaffe said, they are not gonna make lots of different European versions to accommodate every country. Just makes sense to reduce costs by having a single SCEE version.
