NowGamer: Eat, Sleep, Play boss David Jaffe thinks the upcoming Twisted Metal game for PS3 will expand the franchise's worldwide fan-base...
The title is misleading, Jaffe said Twisted Metal has never been as big of a hit in EU as it has been in the US.
Welcome to N4G lol
I must admit I never really played it when they were about. I played Vigilante 8 which is similar but I wouldn't say that was a huge game either. I'm personally more prepared to give it a go this time round though, it's a lacking genre and will make a change from the usual tried and tested games of late.
I don't know why it not popular in Europe. Twisted metal black was amazing. I still wished this game was a sequel to black. I never liked the humor side of twisted metal. I never found it funny.
I don't know why Gran Turismo is not popular in US
Watch some US racing, that should cover it.
The game seems pretty chaotic, maybe that's why.
I'm European and like a bit of chaos every now and again. Are you trying to say European gamers prefer peaceful games?
Nope, it was a guess, but I think europeans play more diverse games.
IDK-I can only remember seeing ANYTHING in the UK about the very first game and when release day came it wasn't in any of my local stores! Since then the only time I've ever SEEN TM is on Youtube til this one got announced. I recall Jaffe being interviewed for OPMUK and saying he thought, maybe, TM hadn't been subtle enough for EU gamers but I'm thinking Sony, for whatever reason, just never pushed it over here.
SCEE are terrible for pushing games over here, I dont know if its a budget or regions issue, but you rarely see TV ads never mind anything else unless its a MASSIVE release.
now i know why sony decided to make a new twisted metal. because it is very popular in US and ps3 needs sales boost in US. same reason why sony has so many shooter exclusives: resistance, killzone, MGO, warhawk, uncharted, socom, haze
Yep Sony mostly fund US oriented games. Goes to show they know more than the fanboys which market is the most important to secure. Even games like GOW3 are way bigger in the US than in EU.
uh ? what's us oriented about the killzone serie selling as well in eu than in us ? Or resistance even doing better in europe ? Or heavy rain ? Or little big planet ? Gran turismo ? Motorstorm ? You've got one god of war serie well marketed in usa , and now suddenly it's a us orientated frenzy ?
I remember Twisted metal but I could never get in to it, all though I loved playing Vigilante 8.
The same could be said for God of War. I've never perceived it to be that popular over here compared to the US, whereas Gran Turismo is the exact opposite.
Maybe it didn't sell well as in US cos of the pirate discs but the 2nd was huge(Paris level)
Bit misleading, that title. My 5 cents: I loved them all
If SCEE decide its not worth marketing then forget it. It's the same with the SOCOM series, its big in the USA but over here there is almost no info to do with the release, and the only info we got on a release date was on twitter. SCEE seem to think they know what everyone likes thus games that do well in american can sometimes just disappear under the radar in the UK/EU.
