The lights are on
Twisted Metal and God of War creator David Jaffe offered a few hints about his next game and it may feature at least one gun.
In an interview with IGN, Jaffe commented on first-person shooters saying that he is a fan, but that the genre has grown stale over the last few years. "I love the genre, but I feel it has been allowed to go a little -- well, actually, quite a lot -- stale when it comes to moment to moment mechanics," said Jaffe.
Jaffe added that he has been throwing around a lot of different ideas for games, and has narrowed them down to a few that he would like to pursue. Jaffe said, "there is a gun in [one of the games] and you hold it. And all the things that I can sit here and passionately discuss and preach to you are absolutely things that I'm thinking about doing if it turns out the game we're thinking about doing gets made next involves a gun and a person holding a gun."
It's all very ambiguous, and offers no real indication of what Jaffe is working on, but it sounds like he would like to do a shooter if given the opportunity. It wouldn't be the first time Jaffe worked on a first-person shooter. After the release of God of War, Jaffe began working on a first-person shooter for the PSP called Heartland. That project was unfortunately cancelled before releasing.

That quote is virtually indecipherable, but it sounds like Jaffe has discovered the concept of the light gun?
Rumor police we got a rumor going round but nothing worthy of an article
could be interesting.
Lol this dude seems to make studios and then leave them after a project done, there where huge problems with the online features of twisted metal. Was it fixed? I mean it be funny if he actually can make something unique if its a shooter but no high hopes.

"And all the things that I can sit here and passionately discuss and preach to you are absolutely things that I'm thinking about doing if it turns out the game we're thinking about doing gets made next involves a gun and a person holding a gun."
"No comment" woulda sufficed.
They need to make a new typ of game in the style of Manhunt... even though that is a Rockstar game... something like that... real character focused/driven...
like a man and his ol' trusty reliable gun.... I dunno.. I admit I haven't played any 1st person shooters in awhile... I've just grown bored with the crap..
but, I'll probably pop on BF3 here in a few days since the semester is finally over.
we'll see if he can freshen things up...
thanks jaffe, it involves a gun and a person holding a gun... ok
