Saints Row IV sells over 1 million copies in first week

Deep Silver has just announced that developer Volition's Saints Row IV is a "smashing commercial success" with over a million units sold through during the game's first week at retail. The PC version in particular was cited for having tripled the early sales figures of last year's Saints Row: The Third, which was published by THQ.

Nice to see and great for the developers. Played all three previous games and this one is sounding like it will be the best.

I still miss the original premise of the original game though.

GarrusVakarian1126d ago

Me too, after 2 each game seemed like a desparate attempt to out-dumb the next. I much preferred the street "gangster" setting of the first 2.

While I loved SR2's story, SR3 was still more fun in terms of gameplay and SR4 was the same. I agree with the story though. They really should have the plot of SR2 with the gameplay of SR3.

Listen, the game sells a million that's great but I like the original premise it had.

Gang oriented.

I don't know what happen down the line with the devs changing its semi serious cool gang vibe to a complete car wreck of a game it is now.

They lost me as a fan because they're catering to the twitchy 12 year old fanbase.

Yes I want some sort of maturity to my games along with some silliness or comic relief.

Saint Row V is not cute and its not funny. The devs need to refocus Saints Row V into something that it had before.

The war between Saints Row and GTA are long over. Saints Row has the potential to stand on its own.

Saints Row just turned into that "every other game" that's out there now.

This games a pass, a definite pass for me.

EDIT: Anybody who disagree please leave a counter argument I would like to debate about this.

You are getting Disagreed to hell because it's an Xbox exclusive mate, not because of your opinion.

I agree with what you say.

@AngelicIceDiamond

If you decided to pass on the game, how do you know its not funny?

How can you debate a game that you have decided not to play?

I do not think its like every other game out there. Nor do I think many references the game makes would be caught by many 12 year olds. Like the part just before the final fight, for those who know what I'm talking about.

Is it for everyone, no, but even I was surprised by it. They definitely dropped a lot of the silliness in favor more satire.

But this is all academic as you've decided to not give it a chance.

@joe90

Xbox exclusive that you can get on the PS3.

aliengmr, Saints Row 1 on PS3? you sure.

AngelicIceDiamond was talking about Saints Row 1,which i was replying to.

THQ bet on the wrong horse

This Game looks like garbage tbh, they use cheap adult references to sell their games.

T21126d ago

Well so did / does gta in a lot of ways . this series gets a lot of hate but is generally quite fun and sr4 really is getting great scores ... Ill download it at 29.99 or so...

Gimmemorebubblez1126d ago (Edited 1126d ago )

Deserved. I un-expectedly enjoyed it so much 9/10, I thought it would be cheap innuendo filled GTA rip-off.

starchild1126d ago

Nice to see that the PC version sold so well. And it's nice that it's selling so well in general.
