Saints Row Confirmed for PS3


THQ have today confirmed that Saints Row is coming to the PS3 this Spring. This is what Kelly Flock, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Publishing at THQ had to say about Saints Row for the PS3:

Saints Row has established itself as one of the most successful original properties in next generation gaming, and we’re excited to bring the groundbreaking experience to PLAYSTATION 3 system fans worldwide. Bringing the open-world genre to the PLAYSTATION 3 system for the first time will help grow the Saints Row fan base and expand the open-world online community.

Whether this GTA clone can fill the void for PS3 owners until the real thing (GTA IV) arrives later this year is up for debate. A trend does seem to be forming with this current gen, as more and more 3rd party titles are going multiplatform. How many 3rd party games will remain ‘exclusive’ to the PS3 or 360 this gen? More and more games that people thought were ‘exclusive’ to one system are turning out to be nothing more than ‘timed exclusives’ and then being ported to the other system with some added bells and whistles a few months down the line.

Anybody played Saints Row on the 360? Is it right to label it as a GTA clone, or is that doing the game an injustice and is it any fun to play? If it’s cheap on the PS3 then I may consider it but I won’t pay £40 or £50 for it.

    This game is actually a good ripoff of GTA, way better than Crackdown!!I’m going to pick this up for the PS3!!

    It is a good ripoff of GTA. It has some problems but for the most part it is fun and will hold you over until GTA4.

    Ivan you are crazy. Crackdown is a lot of fun and I cannot wait until it is released in 3 weeks. Some people don’t like the graphics (Cell Shaded) but I do.

    Sandbox games are fun and I can only imagine what GTA 4 is going to be like. Until then there are a few games out that are entertaining at the minimum.

    I might pick up this one for PS3. I rented it for my 360 but was plagued with the invisible car lock so I didn’t end up picking it up.

    Hopefully they fix that bug in this release. I’ll probably wait a few weeks after the release just to see if anyone complains about that bug first.

    I already played the hell outa this game on 360 and beat it entirely. It was a decent GTA clone, but wasn’t near as good as San Andreas !!! The best thing about Saints Row for me, was the graphics and the character customizing, but that’s about it…..still fun though because of its gameplay (sandbox).
