14w ago - Sony Video Game Designer / Director David Jaffe invites fans to celebrate Twisted Metal's first PS3 birthday with a series-spanning sale today.
Below are the details, as follows: Hey all! I wanted to drop by to help celebrate the one-year anniversary of Twisted Metal for PS3!
"What?!?" I hear you say, "The game's already been out for a year?!?" Indeed it has! Crazy how time flies, huh?
Seems like only yesterday some of y'all were telling me I was an idiot for focusing the new game on three characters versus a larger cast like we did in the earlier TM games. Ah, good times, good times.
But seriously, on behalf of myself and the amazing Twisted Metal teams from Eat Sleep Play and Sony, please allow me to say thanks to all of the Twisted Metal fans who showed up to support this latest explosion of carnage and meaty gameplay.
While our online community is by no means the biggest in gaming, it's so exciting to see that it's very much alive and kicking. It's easy to find games, and new players are hitting the scene each and every week.
We've gone through a number of post-launch tuning passes,...
57w ago - Senior Producer Zach Wood has announced today that Axel will be available to all tomorrow alongside the Starhawk Sweet Tooth Skin as part of the incoming Twisted Metal PS3 update.
To quote: We're pleased to confirm that Axel will be available to all Twisted Metal players with the upcoming free patch on April 18th.
If you missed him through early pre-order access, this will be your chance to deal some serious destruction in new ways. Bothered by some unrelenting enemies? Blow them away with Axel's signature Crowd Control attack, or run them right over with his ruthless War Wheel alternate special attack.
You can learn more about Axel gameplay strategies (along with strategies for all vehicles) in the Twisted Metal University series at TwistedMetal.com.
After studying up on your vehicle of choice, take it for a spin in online multiplayer where we've tirelessly been working on updates driven by user feedback. Give it a try and keep the feedback coming!
Finally, you've seen pictures from our initial January announcement that Sweet Tooth would be making an appearance in Starhawk, but you've never seen him in action...until today. Check out Sweet Tooth's Outcast form in this new video:

66w ago - Twisted Metal Producer Chad Cox is back with a second video today from the Twisted Metal University series dubbed Lesson 2: Vehicle Tactics for PS3.
To quote: Today's lesson focuses on risk vs. reward in the high-stakes world of vehicular combat. Experienced Twisted Metal players have long known that the highest-damage attacks require quite a bit of risk, and this 2012 revival is no exception.
Whether you're swooping in close to deliver a point-blank Shotgun blast or charging up the devastating Swarmer missile, Twisted Metal's sprawling arsenal requires a firm, steady hand.
Watch today's new video to learn how to best manage high-risk special attacks such as Roadkill's devastating Blood Missile Barrage and Reaper's Flamesaw - two of the most lethal weapons in the game.
Then use this knowledge to give you a headstart on multiplayer combat this February 14th when Twisted Metal finally lands on PS3!
Finally, below is some video footage for fans who wish to honor Twisted Metal's return by blowing up Sweet Tooth's truck- Enjoy!
66w ago - Producer Chad Cox has made available a Weapons Training video today for Twisted Metal on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Starting today, we're introducing a video series we call "Twisted Metal University." The goal: Get you up to speed in time for Twisted Metal's February 14th release. That's less than a week away, so we'll have to move fast!
In today's chaotic episode, you'll be (re)introduced you to some of Twisted Metal's fiendish firepower, starting with the EMP Blast, Absorption Shield, Mines, and more. This video also gives you a primer on choosing the right sidearm, whether it's the flesh-shredding shotgun, the devastating magnum revolver, the heat-seeking Swarmer rocket launcher, or the all-powerful Mega Gun.
With a little luck, and a lot of pluck, you'll catapult yourself to the top of the multiplayer leaderboards this February 14th.
Check back soon to learn more killer tricks and tactics for this long-awaited revival.
