Twisted metal is better off delayed to get a good game, rather than that still rushed UMVC3, please capcom, Quit making fighters until you know how to make good ones again.
Why would anyone consider the Twisted Metal delay a bad thing? It means two things, the first being that it avoids this releasing when all the big hitters do and secondly, it gives the team more time to improve the game. I'm pleased with the delay, a lot of superb games are out in the next 3 months (why summer couldn't have had a few I don't know, there's been next to nothing) and it would have been overlooked. Good call. I for one like the more niche titles such as Resistance 3, Dark Souls and Twisted Metal. They're getting my attention way before Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3 or Assassin's Creed Revelations will.
