Twisted Metal won't be coming to the Xbox 360. Obviously not, since Sony owns the game's license. Still, even if creator David Jaffe could put it on the 360, he apparently would not. According to the developer, giving the PS3 exclusives is more rewarding than expanding his potential audience. 

"No, we will not be making it for the 360," Jaffe told a 360-owning fan. "The only thing we’d love more than getting the game out there to as many players as possible -- via putting it on new systems -- is to continue helping Sony differentiate their box from other boxes. We love our 360s and Wiis and iPads but TM is Sony owned and made just for PS3 users."

While this news may have disappointed Twisted Metal fans who lack a PS3, Jaffe played Santa to at least one of them. Sony Santa Monica and Eat Sleep Play actually sent one Twisted Metal fan a PS3, just so he could play the game when it launches next year. 

That's pretty classy ... but I hope you brought enough PS3s for the whole class, David.
