This is the first time Volition has ever shown off the PS3 version of upcoming GTA 4 rival Saints Row 2. Up to this point it's been the Xbox 360 version that's been shown to press, that's been played by press. This is an important moment in the development of the game, and you can tell the developer is delighted by it. "The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game are about a day apart right now," beams associate producer Dan Sutton.
Why is this important? Because the PS3 port of the first Saints Row never came to fruition. It was cancelled, in fact, so that the sequel could be concentrated on. And now the fruits of Volition's labour are here.
