After wishing everyone viewing a happy holidays, he revealed that everyone who buys a first-run copy of Twisted Metal for the PlayStation 3 will also receive a free download voucher for Twisted Metal Black. The version of Black that will be released is the one that was originally on the PlayStation 2 back in 2001.
Jaffe explained that the reason for the inclusion is to reward longtime fans with a bonus as well as allow players to experience both Black and the new Twisted Metal while comparing the two and the advancements that the series has made. Twisted Metal is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and is set to be released on February 14th in North America.
