The lights are on
Sony seems fully aware of which Twisted Metal installments fans love the most, as a new Birthday Bundle promotion highlights four of them. For one week, PSN users can download Twisted Metal 1, 2, Black, and the 2012 PS3 title for a grand total of $39.99.
All four are awesome games, and the only omission I can think of is the underrated Head-On for PSP (later released for PS2). If you'd prefer to pick them up piecemeal, you can get the first two for $4.99, Black for $7.99, and the new game for $29.99.

Sweet! I already have the ps1 games but i'll probably grab Black at that price! :)
This would be awesome....if i didn't already have 2, Black, and the ps3 version.....I miss the first one, was one of the first games i got for my playstation and it was awesome. Granted in comparison, the visuals sucked and i'm sure the game play is probaly horrid, but for me it will forever be a fave.
Black is my favorite in the series by far!
Twisted Metal Head On/Extra Twisted definitely should be here.
I hate the tone of the newer games; the joyless, "Se7en-inspired" garbage of Black and the PS3 one. And I'm not the only one, as PS3 Twisted Metal didn't light up any sales charts. But they play so much better than the classic, more fun Twisted Metals. Head-On is the only one that has the right tone AND the gameplay chops that people like. It's a real shame it was on PSP, than came out on the PS2 when no one cared (much like with the mostly ignored Jak & Daxter: Lost Frontier and Secret Agent Clank games).
It's hard to care about Twisted Metal then. But I may pick one up while they're discounted.
