Grand Theft Auto V and Saints Row 4 Go Head-to-Head?

Ciaran: "So now that the large majority of the gaming world has had the time to come to terms with the absolute bombshell that was the announcement of the Grand Theft Auto V release date, we can all take a step back to reflect on some of the subtleties that may not have seemed so obvious at first. One of the particular subtleties that I find intriguing is the 2013 release that has been pencilled in for Saints Row 4…" (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)

Will it Matter?

Not to me it won't. I'll happily buy both at launch. I'm a big fan of both franchises, so I couldn't care about some competition between them. Whatever the outcome, I win as I get to play two fantastic franchises just as this gen ends. They'll keep me happy while saving up for the next consoles.

For me, character customization makes a big difference
I bought all the Grand theft auto games as well as all the saint row games... The only difference is that I never once cleared a GTA game but have finished all saints row games?!

So you don't know if you did?


I'd love to have a new GTA and a new Saints Row at the same time.

I find it odd and questionable myself that I could never figure out why i have yet to finish any GTA games, even though they are fun to play is what I'm saying...

theres no competition GTA V ftw
TheModernKamikaze  +   557d ago
There is no competition except GTA V itself.

Saints Row will be decimated if this happens.

They would be stupid to release in the same time saints should give atlesst a year for gta V to sell and then when ppl start to hunger for open world mayhem release

Not because of Saints Row.

THQ had some of my favourite franchises this gen. Loved Saint's Row 3 and currently playing Darksiders 2. What a game it is!

This would be suicide for whoever bought the rights to Saints Row.

I gotta say, I enjoyed Saints Row The Third far more than GTA IV. Yes, GTA IV was more polished, but Saints Row is just more fun. The gun play is far more fluid, driving cars is more fun, the world is crazier. The missions in Saints are just fucking crazy. Zombie Invasion, Gun Fights in the Sky, using Jets and blowing shit up, etc.

I'm sure GTA V will get better reviews, more sales, etc. but I'll probably end up enjoying Saints IV more.

so saints row would have to be rushed to release with GTAv, and that would cripple the games ability to compete, plus a unfinished game would get slaughtered by the reviews.

Saints Row 4, will have been in development for at least 2 years come September. That's generally how long it takes Volition to get the game out.

GTA only takes longer, due to Rockstar focusing on other projects. Neither will be rushed.

GTA takes longer due to the immense detail and research that goes into a GTA game.

Release Feb 2014 please
cleverusername  +   556d ago
Saints who?
OcelotRigz  +   556d ago
GTA is the daddy of gaming, Saints Row is some ugly bastard child he had as a result of a drunken night once.

Jon Snow is a good bastard, Saints Row isnt.

Yeah, i dont know....

Need to find away to bring in a character like John Gat,cause Gat was the shit,Besides Price was a whining Bth.

P.S To Koch Media please don't screw up the game. Thnxs

How was the delay an absolute bombshell? Rockstar always do it.

On topic, I personally prefer GTA so it'll be a day one. Depending on reception I may pick up Saint's Row later.
gamernova  +   556d ago
Saints Row is fun and I'd get both but not even CoD can beat GTA. GTA is where quality is always constant. Saints Row would easily fall.
porkChop  +   556d ago
Uh, did the author forget that THQ just went under and Koch Media bought Saint's Row? The game will very likely be delayed because of the change in management. It would be a good thing though, going head to head with GTA is bad for business, and it'll give Volition time to make it a better game.
