Saints Row: The Third launched earlier this week, and PlayStation owners were feeling a little betrayed when there was no sign of any exclusive content that they were promised with the game. While THQ hasn't offered any statement on the lack of this exclusive mode that was touted at E3 back in 2010, they did make good on giving PS3 gamers a little some extra.
If you can remember all the way back to E3 2010, you'll remember that THQ had promised PS3 owners a little something extra when they purchased Saints Row: The Third. The exclusive mode, which was never detailed in full, was apparently scrapped by THQ and Volition.
The Saints Row franchise spawned to life to fill somewhat of a demand for sandbox games that Rockstar created with the Grand Theft Auto series. While the original Saints Row saw some criticisms thrown its way for emulating Rockstar's maginificent open-world formula, it's sequel, Saints Row 2 began to forge its own path.
The go anywhere do anything action of Saints Row: The Third is on display in the latest gameplay to surface for the upcoming sandbox game. The footage doesn't appears to be straight gameplay from the game, so it gives a good representation about what to expect come mid-November.
Sure, EA's Origin content delivery system may have seemed a little light at re-launch, but today, the publisher revealed that some of the industry's biggest are joining the network. Soon you'll be able to get content on Origin from publishers like Capcom, Warner Brothers, and THQ which will definitely increase the value of having an Origin account if you only picked one up for Battlefield 3.
