Xboxkings just received an e-mail that Saints Row 2 will be revealed in EGM November.
The first details will be given in an exclusive article about this free-roaming game. EGM will be available at your bookstore at the beginning of October.
oh thats gonna make some people angry....
more of the usual "360 vs ps3 comparison" crap coming soon....
Everyone expected this to be multiplatform. Plus, I have noticed that 360 fans don't care nearly as much as PS3 fans when their games go multi platform.
Giving your money to M$, it is win win for them either way ^_^. And games like this and lost planet should have been multiplatform anyway. Oh you guys can have Crackdown 2 *shudders*.
LOL You just keep trying. Look...misery does Love Company, but please stop trying so hard to flame.
Saint Row was a decent game. I suggest that when it comes out on PS3 you give it a try. I got some of the most impossible achievements for that game and has some real fun on XBL. So I hope in return you get to do the same with SR2 for you PS3.
There is no foundation for your haten SUCKA!!!
This game going multi plat is actually old news. It is not like losing Assassins Creed, Ace Combat, DMC4, or an other PS3 game that has gone multi plat.
Do your self a favor, just go buy a 360. You do seem to pay a lot of attention to the 360 news. Seeing that you had the 1st post and all.
how am i trying to start a flame war?
i was actually suggestting that this will start flame wars by doing the usual comparison thing, try learning to read before you jump on me purely because i wrote something in a halo thread you didnt like!
right, 1st to post, yeah it was in the NEWS section(and ps3 section as thats what the thread is actually on about) and I OWN A 360... and just cos i own one doesnt mean i have to be a fan boy for it and dimiss anything slightly negative like yourself.
stop being a biased child, just because someone promotes another console for a minute doesnt make them your enemy, where all gamers..... some just a little more imature, not naming names....
the first one was nothing special, and i hope they improve the graphics, framerate and control system.
and please include motorbikes this time
This game was always multi plat.
Heck the orginal one was getting ported over to Ps3, however canned it when it wouldn't have been ready til GTAVI release (at the time) so it would get overlooked.
Still bet they wish they didn't can it now
Good thing the PS3 didn't get it, because the game was garbage. It tried TOO hard to be a "GTA:SA" rather than it's own unique title. Now that the developers have seen GTAIV, they're probably going to try extra hard to clone it.
This game was announced multi plat like way back in the summer after they said they wouldnt be bringing the first saints row to PS3, and that the team was working on the 2nd saints row for both xbox360 and PS3. I liked the first one, played the heck out of it, at the time though online was kinda crummy, but hopefully this time online is better.
The original Saints Row was supposed to be for PS3 also, but they had some Dev problems and stuff.
ok why would ps3 get saint row 2 with out playing sant row 1 they migth get another saint row but not the sequal
They cancelled it, because they had to get their team to focus on Saints row 2, plus at the time GTA IV was around the corner.
Mabey because the graphics of Saints row looks a bit lastgen for the PS3 i think :D And if they do wanna play the first, just let them buy a Xbox360 :P
the same reason us xbox360 owners are getting DMC4
saints is not just for 360 ... its also ps3 now
Funny how PS3 gamers say games were 360 exclusive while just at the time they released...
THE PS3 WAS DELAYED
That's why games like Oblivion, Encharted Arms and Saints Row were 'timed exclusive' on the 360.
Real exclusives on the XBOX side (games that began on the XBOX 1 and made the jump to next gen also PS3) aren't there. Only a remake of a couple of years old game Ninja Gaiden. WHile the 360 will get Ninja Gaiden 2 from day one again timed exclusive for years.
On the other hand... PS2 former exclusives have jumped over to next gen 360:
Ace Combat 6 (360 exclusive now)
Virtua Fighter 5
Virtua Tennis 3
Resident Evil 5
While 360 keeps its 3rd party exclusives and real important games like Bioshock, Lost Planet, Dead Rising, Gears of War etc.
If you look close you only can agree. Although Sony fanboys like to hear that those 'exclusives' because of the total abscence of the PS3 is a real good deal for the Delaystation 3. Right guys, keep believing in that dream
The first ones were exclusive to the Xbox 360...but the sequels are multiplatform.
I wouldnt be so sure about lost planet or bioshock there Mart or Dead rising, you keep putting your foot in your mouth, we love it, just keep on talkin.
Well for the moment at least, you can't prove me wrong, can you?
But wishfull thinking may always be. Only on facts that are known now, what I state is right. And I can even see MS buying Capcom if some of their important exclusives might jump ship. They have billions and billions just waiting on the bank to invest. Capcom would be a nice one. Imagine all their other games, like DMC4 or 5 etc. completely go 360 exclusive. OUCH!
@ Hotshower below
Ah right dude... That's why Sony is loosing about 500 to 600 million dollars every quarter of the year since 2005. That's why they don't have money in the bank to invest. That's why last year they took a multimillion dollar loan to put in the PS3 black hole, that's why they have a part of their company for sales for about 3 billion dollar...
That's why MS still has 40 to 50 billion dollar in bank, that's why Bill Gates is one of the richests persons in the world.
Thanks for putting a reply that dumb just below me and proving me right instead of wrong.
dude just because M$ have money doesnt mean sh1t, are you implying companies like capcom need money from M$? in fact i think you'll find M$ dont have quite as much money to throw arouind as you think, they have been lossing money annually for about the last 8 years, this being one of the worst with VISTA being a hugh dissapointment and lets not even talk about the 360 fault issues.... billions down..... you need to make money to survive in business no matter who you are!
edit @ theMART... dont know who hotshower is but i guess you mean me? i never said that sony arent lossing money, we were talking about microsoft because people like you seem to think that microsoft has a bottomless pit of money, they dont! you obviously have very little knowledge about business if you think a company can continue to just spunk money. people seem to think 'oh well they lost 2 billion on the xbox, M$ can afford that no worries...' one, its means M$ are less likely to push money into it untill the regenerate the money they have already lost and two, all these problems mean for bad press which is simply pushing customers towards their rivals eg apple and also lowering the value of their stock!
M$ became so big because they had the right idea at the right time with 'windows', in this day and age there is far more compatition and consumers are much more clued up on technology, i have been a die hard pc fan for years and always stood by windows but with APPLE getting more support from developers and manufacturers i know what OS ill be buying next...
"i never said that sony arent lossing money"
Even worse: they loose money they don't have...
"we were talking about microsoft because people like you seem to think that microsoft has a bottomless pit of money"
Well, a 40 to 50 billion dollar is a rather deep pit at least.
"you obviously have very little knowledge about business if you think a company can continue to just spunk money."
Ah right. Lets qualify ourselfs, shall we? Are you also on double master degree level, Economics? I think my knowledge about business and economics will go a bit further then yours kid. Have you looked into their investing habbits? Have you looked into them making profit, although investing heavenly in the gaming sector? Long term investments dude. Sony is trowing in more money with the PS3 and earning less, that businessmodel is totally off.
Besides making money on every 360 now, they make money with XBL and much spending on the Marketplace points. Besides that the attache rate of the 360 is on a high 6.2 games per console, while the PS3 only has 3.6 games per unit sold. I think you should get the financial statements of both companies and look into their total business and profitability.
"bad press which is simply pushing customers towards their rivals eg apple"
You mean that 4% of all PC's in the world that run OSX/Linux? And that other 96% that is using Windows? RIGHT
"and also lowering the value of their stock!"
"M$ became so big because they had the right idea at the right time with 'windows', in this day and age there is far more compatition and consumers are much more clued up on technology, i have been a die hard pc fan for years and always stood by windows but with APPLE getting more support from developers and manufacturers i know what OS ill be buying next..."
Again, read above. 4% of all PC's run OSX. You know MS bites like a pitbull when they enter a market, right?
Browser: Netscape was king once. Then IE came and won
Messenger: ICQ was king once. Nowadays? Right... MSN
OS: Windows on what 96% of all PC's
and it goes on and on. Don't talk about stuff you really have no idea about. Try to challenge me. Let's see who has the best facts and backup
Like you said only wishful thinking with your MS buying capcom :)
A sequel to one of the most wiggerish games ever created :(
I had so much fun in Saints Row. Can't wait for the sequel.
cool...but first I need my GTA fix...
im really interested in saints row 2
You jacked the news from another site. Good job.
This game was excellent, it did many things better than GTA to be honest and I'm awaiting SR2 for my 360. :D
I loved the first one.. I've never been into the whole gangsta crap, but for some reason this game pulled me in. Yes it has some glitches that were never really patched but I'm looking forward to SR2.
I think they should of kept it on the 360 as an exclusive. Sony folks with simply write it off as some poor GTA clone, while I loved this game way more than GTA.
I wasn't into the whole 'gangsta' genre, but loved the game. Addicting as hell and a total blast. Can't wait for the SR 2.
hopefully SR 2 dosent suck as bad as SR1
