Saint's Row for PS3 Cancelled, Saint's Row 2 to Hit XBox 360 and PS3

SaintTHQ announced today that Saint’s Row for the PS3 has been canceled. Instead, the publisher is focusing their resources on a sequel to the original Saint’s Row.

The sequel, slated for a 2008 release for XBox 360 and PS3, is being developed by Volition, who also developed the original Saint’s Row. Over 1.4 million units of the XBox 360 version of Saint’s Row have shipped worldwide, says THQ. This number is likely to rise, as it has recently been released as a XBox 360 Platinum Hits title at a reduced price.

Apparently, THQ preferred to focus their attention on a successful, simultaneous launch of the sequel across multiple consoles. THQ CEO Brian Ferrel said, “We’ve done great things for our brands by putting them in the right time frame. The most important thing for the Saints Row franchise is to have a simultaneous shipment into a larger installed base next year. That’s what we’re looking for with Saints Row 2.”

The ps3 is alot better than the xbox 360 and will have more games than it. Fable 2 will be just like the first one.

Saints Row AINT coming out for the P.S. 3 because the P.S. 3 cannot accept the backward compatablity issues associated with the port from the 360 to the P.S. 3. And while we are talking about over heat issues how many P.S.3″s do you actually see running? like at wal-mart? nope, game stop?, nope, normally either turned off so customers won’t have to see the error screen thus hurt sales even more, or the dang thing over heated and self imploded and the management at the store said screw it “just shut the piece of off”. P.S.3, $100.00 price drop?, i heard and read that you will only get a 40 gig hard drive and other features will be removed or slashed completely, i guess we will have to wait and see. Xbox 360 has done and did the good deed, they increased the warranty on the Xbox 360 up to 3 years from date of purchase. Now you little minded kids need to remember one thing, these units are not made at Microsoft Corp America, but are made in China, can you say China?…C h i n a, very good. Q.C. at Microsoft labs only get off the assembly line a tiny percentage of the units that roll down the assembly line for testing, and you can bet your very first puby hair that those units are the best the Chinese manufacturers can make. Where are the P.S. 3′s made at?, serious i won’t own one but that don’t mean that i am not curious as to where in this big old globe we call earth that it is made at, Thailand?, Singapore?, Maybe even (gasp!!) China?. Why do you think we have the problems with our consoles that we have now?, because we have them manufactured over seas with countries that do not give a rats ass about the consumer, they are only consumed by one driving force and that is greed, the bottom line, staying in the black. While we here in the States and other countries have our little pee pee wars about who has the better consoles. If and when, and that means NEVER, they are made and put together here in Our country then we can have a console war, BUT please don’t have it for the foreign powers sake. Be glad we have 3 (THREE) yes three companies making consoles out there Nintendo who by the way is number 1 (one) in sales of hardware, followed by Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Premium and the Elite, followed lastly by Sony’s number 3, (three) yes 3, whom is still trying to build up a head of steam, and when she does…watch out!. If there was only one console, it does not matter who, what do you suppose you would pay for a next gen system?, would that system even be as good as the consoles of today? or would they still be stuck in the 64 bit days with carts instead of c.d.roms?, or worse yet graphics not much better than an Atari 5200 series!!! (YIKES). So i guess it is good that we have this rivalry between systems, just don’t get so sure of your selves until you all do a little bit of research before you start spouting off on a subject you know not one thing about……like the release of a game…Sheesh!

PS3 was the best thing i spent my money on. I hated XBox and i hate XBox 360!, i’m not biased, i have tried all of them and found that the PS3 is BETTER…

Saints Row 2 is gonna be an awsome game, and i certainly will buy it, but i’m also a HUGH GTA fan and will get GTA IV when its finally released.

Everyone has their own opinion, which they are entitled to, and my opinion is PS3 is a 1000 times Better than XBox 360.

im only playin saints row to bide the time between gta’s! only problem is they’ve pushed back the release date here in the uk until next year which proper sucks! probably cos of it clashing with halo 3 coming out n they probably figured they would make more money if they kept it back for a while… plus they could be addin some extra tidbits :grin:

By the way i bought my xbox360 when they first came out. I also bought a nintendo wii and a ps3 but wait My ps3 doesnt work anymore and why is that because it burned up and stopped working. I got an intercooler for my xbox360 and it never over heats and it never gets corrupted i have a 120gig hard drive for it I can store anything i want on it. the wii still works. Oh and BTW Gary Cady my xbox360 was made in the U.S.A. not China (can you say china) S h i t . Good job buddy. Don’t try to talk down about anyone or anything just because you have a piece that is made out of country, I don’t. And THQ said saints row is supposed to be released MID ’08 they are guessing August 17,2008.

I can’t wait for Saints Row 2,it’s going to be of the chane.Im already saving up by cutting lawns and stuff.I hate that my parents want by it for me because im to young,but my birtday is soon,and Saints Row 2 comes out around April well for Xbox-360,.for Playstation3 it comes out in July,so Im glad that I have a Xbox-360 so I can get it earlyer.I got 35$ so far so Im on a good road.Well in Saints Row 2 its a whole new different story.You find out that your character in the first one has’nt died in about 17 years and your character was betrayed by these undercover cops.Troy,Juleis,and Jonny.Your character just got out of jail and the Saints have tookin over all of Stiler.Your character has to buid up his own gang because he was betrayed and kicked out of the Saints.your the leader and the one thing he wants to do is get back and up those traders.So you get to choose your gangs colors cars and territory.The new and better improve ments about Saints Row 2 is that you get to use 2 pistoles,or sub machine guns at the same time.and there are better clothes like camo pants, nikes,airforces,andjordans,and you can use motorcycles,airplanes,and ships,and there are better cars like Monster trucks,four wheelers,jets,yots,lamorgines,ferraries,porchines,bnx’s,dirt bikes,and the brand new 2008 transformers bumlbubee mustang.Well thats all for now my es make sure you check out my review for Grand Thef Auto IV.Piece.

GunnerNiv

On October 29, 2008 at 11:12 am

Right I have a few issues to clear up here. First off this whole issue of which console is better is a complete joke. I have a 360 and PS3, bought the 360 a couple of years ago and low and behold I got the flashing red lights issue and it’s now a doorstop. I bought the PS3 not long after the 360 and it’s still fine.

I use my PS3 every day and enjoy playing it, the 360 was good but most of the games were too “samey samey”. When you size them both up it comes down to value for money, The 360 is cheap, in the UK it’s down to 130pounds sterling, that works in at about $80 which by anyones view is dirt cheap. The PS3 is 100 pounds more but offers a top class Blue Ray player/avi/mp3/mp4 player. The ps3 comes with HDMI as standard but you need to buy the new 360 to get that.

My 60gig ps3 has memory slots for most types of flash card, and loads of usb ports. The 360 has been flawed from day one because they tried so hard to get it on the shelves as quick as they could, I have been dissapointed in most aspects of the 360 since I got mine. The one really big plus for the 360 is the controller design, it is far more comfy and user friendly, however the ps3 has the sixaxis.

Microsoft has been all about the money for years, you have to buy everything as an extra, look at the HD player, had to get is seperate and it flopped because of it. Microsoft also said you do not need HDMI to get full HD quality so didn’t feel they had to include HDMI in the original console.

The second thing I have to bring up is Saints Row 2 vs GTA4.

GTA4 is a big let down in terms of a follow up to San Andreas, it is smaller and has less to offer. I thought Saints Row 2 would be a good replacement for GTA4 but sadly it’s worse. The driving in the game is a joke and is more akin to what you would expect from a Sega Master System. The graphics are average at best and again the city is too small for a next gen console. It does have some good points however. I like the way the “cribs” show up on the map so you know where they are if you want to buy a new one, and the fact you can customise it.

I like some of the “moves” used when fighting, it makes it slightly more interesting, a kind of manhunt meets GTA and crackdown. The number of weapons is quite impressive too, as is the number of cars, and aircraft. When you start playing it you very quickly start to see where they got most of their ideas from. The General look and feel is like a mix of GTA and Crackdown, some of the parts of the map seem as if they are taken from motorstorm.

All in all I’m unhappy with both GTA4 and Saints Row 2, however if you could take the good aspects of both games you would have a near perfect game, each on their own is poor.

PS3 owns all

On November 4, 2008 at 12:14 pm

wow, none of u retards do ur research except 4 one 360 fanboy but PS3 is way better than the stupid retarded xbox 360 its only good 4 gears of war 1 &2 and maybe lo3 but any way PS3 wins by far here is 1% of my reasoning:

PS3 OWNS!!! 360 BLOWS!!! WII IS AWESOME!!!

Ps3 is way way more superior than the 360, old 360′s have 16-30% chance of failing, and even the new ones still have 7-15% chance of failing, PS3 and wii only have 2-5 % chance of failing, and Blu-ray beat down HD and PS3 has remote play, and online is free for PS3 ans PSP. Microsoft didn’t even come out with a portable system, the 360 elite is a waste of money, all your payin extra is for the HDMI, color and hard drive space. PS3 is WAY WAY more superior, I KNOW because I HAVE a 360 AND PS3 and compared them both PS3 is obviosly better than 360 and wii.

Hi Ajith, Reseller hosting can extremely affordable and you could potentially make a lot of money with a proper reseller hosting account, if you have enough paying clients.

Saints row was my favorite sandbox game. Then i sold my 360 for a PS3 and immediately regretted it because i could not bring it over. Personally i thought SR3 was just a quick buck n it was not worth it but Saints Row would be worth it.
P.S. Saints Row was a platinum game and I took the time to write it out 3 times. Third Street Saints Forever!

They really need to think about the people who haven’t tried the first one because they didn’t have the right system. I won’t play 2 and 3 because I haven’t played the first one yet.
