David Jaffe, the mind behind the God of War
and Twisted Metal
franchise, may not work for Sony any more -- but that doesn't mean he's no longer a PS Fanboy. His new games studio, Eat Sleep Play
, is working on a PS2 version of Twisted Metal Head-On
and will work on three exclusive games for Sony. In a revealing Q&A with GameDaily, the outspoken game designer said, "I love the PlayStation 3. I love the PSP. I'm a big Sony fan. That doesn't mean that I'm not a 360 fan; I'm a Wii fan, and I love all the systems, but there's something about the PS3. I said it before when I was an employee and I'll say it again now, there's something just really elegant about playing games on that system."
The years of working with Sony has crafted a tight-knit relationship that Jaffe would love to continue. "So right now, we're looking to be in bed with Sony as long as they'll have us. Hopefully we'll make them happy. We'll make Sony proud, they'll like what we do, and they'll have us back time after time ... I mean the people there, they are like a family, I've worked with them for fourteen years; I have no desire to not work with them."
