TVGB: "THQ has just sent word that Saints Row: The Third's Enter the Dominatrix expansion has outgrown itself; the content will be a part of "the next great sequel" instead."
That's interesting news! Not sure what to make of it, I was looking forward to it but I guess if it's going to be bigger and such I can wait.
They should just wait to release it on the next systems. No one needs 4 Saint's Rows this gen. I liked SR3, but I still wouldn't buy it.
I stand corrected. Personally I don't think 4 games of any series should have 4 releases in the same generation.
i want it so badly .. GTA4 was a let down for me. SR where the fun factor. i am big fan of GTA , I hope they fix that in GTA5.
I still thought SR2 was much better than SR3.. hopefully SR4 tones down the 'crazy', because there was just too much of it in SR3.
so they are making an expansion a whole game on itself :/ thats a new low
THQ - "Hey Guys, you know how you hate $10 DLC, so eff that, we'll make it into a $60 game instead"
They did even worse with Saints Row 3. "Hey guys, here's the season pass. You pay for it and you will have DLCs for free, but we will also release DLCs not included in the season pass, so if you want them, you'll have to pay too."
@Tomonobu Itagaki Yep, I and many others fell for that BS. You should see the amount of posters on their forums complaining about it. A season pass should include ALL DLC. I certainly won't be making the same mistake again.
THQ - "Hey guys you know how we're in the shitter financially? Yeah we really need you to pay another 60 for a SR game asap!"
That's low for sure, but this is not new. Capcom does that since age with Street Fighter series or Marvel vs Capcom 3, Ubisoft did that too with Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Revelations, Codemasters did it with DiRT Showdown... So far, the only fair guys is saw this gen regarding expansions are Rockstar with GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption expansions, as they were sold as standalones for a cheap price.
when i said "new low" i ment it's a new low for THQ as from there games i have played they havent milked anything dlc wise sure space marine had the armour skins however that just changed your character skin didnt do anything fundamental to change the game like on disk characters etc so far the only studio's i can think of that havent milked things are as follows bethesda 2k games (bioshocks but then again 2k owns the nexttwo studios) rockstar Gearbox Software (sure boarderlands had 4 expantions however each one was really good and ive yet to finish to of them as there to hard >.<) tri-ace and thats all i can think of :/
4 is not going to be just the expansion... what part of "the content will be a part of "the next great sequel" instead." " didn't you get?
i didnt get the whole thing, thats just PR for "yeh the expansion will be no 4" this will be like rock star saying gay tony was gta5 and the other one gta6
what like Activision have been doing for years with COD? BAM!
no it's not, cod doesn't release a map pack and go here is the new cod if that was the case there would be 4/5 of them a year lol
Halo ODST did the same thing.
No halo odst was a side story if they put a 4 instead of odst it would be the same, however i agree odst should have been dlc
No. Halo ODST was worse. They had and expansion worth of content but charged full price for it. Oh...and they threw in Halo 3's online as if 15 million fans didn't already own those maps.... THQ is in bad shape. I'm surprised there won't be SR4 this year..
wow you know how to read....... no they canceled the DLC and are just working on part 4. Part 4 is not the dlc, where do you people come up with this crap lol
I hope it will be more like SR2, i hated the third one, it was too crazy for my liking
So taking an expansion and making it a full game by adding more content is low how? The season pass clearly stated what DLC would be included and EtD wasn't part of that. Also, it was an expansion not DLC. Now they are taking that expansion and making a full game around it. Not just bumping up the price but essentially adding that content to SR4. Am I the only one confused by this outrage?
okay thq are official in the gutter i hope saints row get picked up by another dev and publisher.
This sucks !
I hope Saints Row The Fourth brings back the competitve multiplayer and not just co-op.
I really enjoyed Saints Row the Third, it was what GTAIV should have been.
Makes sense They weren't happy with the way SR3 turned out, it really is a stupid and embarrasing game. Why do so many of you defend it? I'd rather see them go back to the drawing board and give us a true sequel to Saint's Row 2, which was actually a good game. I'd love to see a quality sandbox title like SR2 again, not Tim and Eric: the game.
this is awesome news, loved SR3. so much crazy nonsensical over the top action and fun :D looking forward to SR4! question though is which ending they'll go for in SR4 seeing as SR3 has 2 completely different endings.
for real, i didnt like SR1 and 2, but LOVED SR3. it was so good
eeeyup! i am tired of games trying to be serious and focusing on realism. i play games to escape boring reality and just have whacky fun that i cant ever have in real life like smashing people into bloody mists or sticking sticky bombs on people. btw, im not nuts, just a bored of life gamer.
THQ are as greedy as Capcom now!
Total disappointment, actually wouldn't had minded a stand alone expansion pack.
Hmmm, maybe we'll see SR4 before GTA V.
SR2 is way better, i hope number 4 is like it
if sr4 comes out it will most likely be by some other publisher
What? You mean the other THQ that is releasing SR4?
Wouldn't it be greedy if they sold the DLC and SR4, as opposed to just releasing SR4? So they decided not to release the DLC and add that content to SR4 instead. What is the issue with that? Its slight bummer that there won't be more DLC for SR3 but I wouldn't call it "a new low".
