Will you agree with us if we say that in the future, there will no longer be any exclusive titles for any console? Owners of Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 will get the same games. Will that stop players from bashing each other or will it fan the flames even further? We guess we'll save that discussion for later but for now, let us talk about Saints Row.
THQ confirmed today in a press release that its sandbox game is indeed headed to the PlayStation 3. EBGames was right after all. Maybe EBGames removed the link from its online store at THQ's word. A pre-mature announcement always leaves a bad taste in the mouths of publishers.
Speaking of which, here is what Kelly Flock, THQ Executive VP of Worldwide Publishing, has to say about their company's decision:
Saints Row has established itself as one of the most successful original properties in next generation gaming, and we're excited to bring the groundbreaking experience to PlayStation 3 system fans worldwide. Bringing the open-world genre to the PlayStation 3 system for the first time will help grow the Saints Row fan base and expand the open-world online community.
Lastly, THQ added that Saints Row for PS3 will be available in retail stores this coming spring. Maybe the next good question to ask is how will this game fare against main competitor Grand Theft Auto
