Twisted Metal: Black May Not Be Offered to European Customers

Twisted Metal: Black May Not Be Offered to European Customers

Don’t shoot the messenger here, but remember when we told you early buyers of the new Twisted Metal would receive a voucher for Twisted Metal: Black? Well, it looks like that’s not 100-percent certain for Europe. Director David Jaffe tweeted earlier today that a decision was pending by that region’s arm of Sony Computer Entertainment.

He mentioned there was a possibility that if included with PEGI-rated version of the game, it could be sans-video scenes. Jaffe goes on to say maybe the PS2 port of Head On could replace Black. Could copyright issues with The Rolling Stones’ “Paint It, Black” be to blame? It’s more likely the title’s gritty content is the culprit here, according to Jaffe’s posts on the PlayStation blog. The decision hasn’t been finalized yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
