David Jaffe, the man behind Calling all Cars and the smash hit God of War (to name a few) has announced he's formed a new game studio with Scott Campbell of Incognito (creators of the upcoming Warhawk) based in Utah and will be known as "Eat, Sleep, Play".
Jaffe and Campbell have now signed a multi-year, multi-title deal with Sony to create games exclusively for the PS3, PSP and PS2. However the new Twisted Metal will not be a next generation game or a squeal - instead the game will be a port of the PSP exclusive Twisted Metal: Head On.
Head-On is considered a true sequel to Twisted Metal 2 which makes Twisted Metal: Head-On, for all intents and purposes, the "real" Twisted Metal 3 when following the Twisted Metal plot line. The game will also be the first console continuation of the series in over half a decade.
The game will also feature new levels that were originally planned for Twisted Metal: Black 2 and a documentary about the series (which Jaffe and Campbell helped create).

No thanks. Id much rather have a brand new Twisted Metal game than a PSP port, somthing like this was a bit more acceptable on the PS2, because the graphics difference wasnt huge. I might get it if its a Store download, but probably not. Im a huge fan of the Twisted Metal series, I just dont really wanna play a port of what was basically a remake.

Ports suck - I really just want Twisted Metal with PS3 graphics. I'd buy that just as quickly as Metal Gear Solid 4 or Lair. No one wants a PSP port. Please don't adopt EA's business model Jaffe.

Even if it's not a new Twisted Metal title, it's still exclusivity for the Playstation franchise. I'm very interested in what both of these guys have in store for us.
