THQ announced less than stellar earnings today but one bright spot was the 2+ million units of Saint's Row 2 that flew off of the shelves.
people bitter about GTA4 eh?? not surprising, i agree with the people buying SR2 attempt to re-capture the old-school GTA appeal... but the lack of polish on the game puts me off i greatly appreciated the production values and the presentation in GTA4... and while the playability was disappointing no doubt... i severely doubt SR2's "fun factor" will serve as much more than a small distraction without the weight of polish supporting it and keeping it compelling
When I went back to play gtaiv, the graphics are nice in HD, and it's cool to play a third person game. The car chases and dying is fun in different places. The problem were the lack of guns, a cohesive gripping storyline and fun missions. Saint row plays good, but I want it to have next-gen graphics. Maybe mixing both companies will do some good and make a great game.
and people are talking about GTA IV. Gamer: Man, Saints Row 2 just sold 2 million in 2 weeks Another Gamer: Yea, GTA IV had some good graphics Gamer: Wha...?! Bubbles for both of you, for giving me a laugh...it's just funny
I thouroughly enjoyed saints 2.
so they sold 1million each week
It's a good game, so it's great it sold well. It's just something fun you can pick up and play for a little while and pretty much do whatever you want. Explore, do some missions, do some side activities (spraying the city down with a septic truck was priceless). This is the kind of game that appeals to the more casual crowd but is, at the same time, fun for the hardcore crowd. 360 and PS3 don't need more kid friendly games, they need more mature casual games like this. Kids don't have money, adults do, and this proves that (sorta I guess, unless 2 million soccer moms bought this game for their little Timmies). Actually, I would like to know which version sold more (360 or PS3)? Be kind of interesting to know. Not only that, but there is supposedly a PC version coming out shortly too, it would be interesting to hear about that one too. GTA IV will be on PC shortly too (which I'll be picking up), which will garner more PC gamers' dollars this holiday?
way better than gta4. i play games for fun. gta4 delved to far into realism. watch the zero-p review. he nails it.
