We recently got to play Twisted Metal for the first time at a New York City event and we were completely happy with what it has turned into. A large scale open battlefield for the Twisted array of cars that can destroy the majority of the environment at will. So we were wondering with this type of game there is usually an install. We asked Producer Drew Bradford and we were simply surprised by the answer.
Drew Bradford producer for Twisted Metal told us flat out, “No install.” At this point was caught off guard and simply replied with a ‘huh?’. He went on to reiterate that Sony allowed them to pre-cache a lot of the data from the hard drive. We saw the game in action and the load times were fairly quick. So we are very impressed with what Twisted Metal is doing for the Playstation 3 and the franchise.
Stay tuned for our hands-on and let us know what you think about the no install aspect of Twisted Metal, are you going to be picking it up come October?
