Mike Schramm from Joystiq has a great, in-depth preview of the new Twisted Medal game:
Even with the so-called “next-gen” updates, Twisted Metal maintains some distinctly throwback designs. At the press preview, the controls defaulted to the “classic” scheme, which notably maps the car’s gas throttle to the Square button. That’s old school — modern convention maps the gas and brakes to the triggers. Jaffe explained that the reason the preview build was set to classic controls was because that’s how the development team has been playing the game.
I don’t own a Playstation 3 but I absolutely loved all the Twisted Medal games1. I doubt this will make me buy a Playstation 3, but it’s tempting.
