Sir David Jaffe, himself, has detailed Twisted Metal's online pass. David had previously mentioned he hoped an Online Pass wouldn't be necessary for his game. In a video blog, Jaffe shared his opinions on why he's "torn" on the issue of online passes. He hoped to get as many people playing Twisted Metal online as possible. In the end it wasn't his call. "It's Sony's game, and they funded it, and I respect their decision."
The Twisted Metal news doesn't stop there. The staple vehicular-combat game will have a demo, I assume before it's February 14th launch. On top of that, Twisted Metal will also have a Day 1 patch to fix any balancing issues still present.
You can watch David's video blog after the jump. Warning, strong, Jaffe language.
Twisted Metal will be released on Valentines Day, February 14th, exclusively for the PS3.
