January 31, 2007 - THQ Inc. announced today that its open-world Xbox 360 title Saints Row will make the leap to the PlayStation 3 this spring. Developed by Volition, Inc., Saints Row puts the players in the role of a 3rd Streets Saints gang member, pitted against rival gangs over control of the city.
As was the case with the Xbox 360 version, Saints Row on the PlayStation 3 will feature online support for multiplayer matches. THQ is keeping mum on what other exclusive or new items we might see on the PS3 release.
"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," said Kelly Flock, executive vice president of worldwide publishing, THQ. "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."
