PS3 version of Saints Row: The Third to come with free Saints Row 2

November 17, 2011

PS3 version of Saints Row: The Third to come with free Saints Row 2 Saints Row: The Third is Volition’s latest zany open world game released just two days ago. The game has been getting positive feedback from various review outlets for its fun and over the top antics in the game.

Last year at E3, it was announced that the PS3 version of the game would come with an exclusive mode, which failed to materialize upon release. Many suspect that the PS3 exclusive mode might have been the “Whored Mode.” Yup, the mode plays exactly as it sounds.

It appears that THQ may have swapped out the exclusive mode in favor of an additional game – Saints Row 2. PS3 owners who pick up a new copy of Saints Row: The Third and redeem their online pass codes within the next 90 days will be able to download Saints Row 2 for free.

Go back to a simpler time, when the Saints were vying for control of Stilwater, before they were global icons, a household name, and a criminal empire. Before Professor Genki and the Syndicate, there were the Westside Rollers and the Brotherhood. Enjoy classic Saints Row activities like Septic Avenger, where you spray new homes with sewage in order to devalue property. And of course, enjoy a number of DLC packs brought to you by Volition’s favorite Saints Row 2 producer, Tera Patrick.

 

Gamers will be able to download their free copy starting next week. As reported on the official US PlayStation blog, this offer applies to the US, Canada and Mexico. Europe may announce a separate promo with THQ later on when the game releases tomorrow.

  1. Roca.:

    Sony needs to stop with all these games. I just got all 4 episodes of Jurassic Park for free and I don’t even have time to play them.

    I really want to check out Saints Row 3 at some point.

  2. The Future of Sega:

    Damnit Roca! I’m supposed to have the first post on articles!!

  3. The Future of Sega:

    Well since I didn’t have the first post I’m not even going to bother commenting on this article. I was going to shed some light but noooooooo…alright next article Mike. :-D

    Doesn’t seem like it will even be worth the bother:

    There Roca, carl just saved you a load of time ;)

    PSN as been really unreliable over the last week or so.

    Keep getting a “Down for maintenance” or an error message when trying to connect. best part of three full evenings I have not been able to get on until last thing at night.

    Anyone else getting this?

  6. CarlB:

    Nope. Working fine on this end.
    IGN did report it would be down for scheduled maintenance yesterday or the day before, but I didn’t catch it. I downloaded Jurassic Potty no problem Tuesday, then logged in a couple of times afterwards without a hitch.

  7. Godless:

    I thought it might have been one of the server farms having issues, cause we couldn’t get access to our email either, though the internet was working for most things.

    PSN has been a bit iffy all week, I’ve had problems at least three nights, both getting logged in or getting dropped.

  8. FahKinSuPah:

    Not like SR2 wasn’t already available before…

  9. dans303:

    @godless

    PSN was down for scheduled maintenance yesterday for pretty much the whole day (unless you were signed in before it started). Apart from that I’ve (nor my flatmates) had no problems logging on to PSN.

    “Doesn’t seem like it will even be worth the bother”

    I love the Jurassic Park movies and the game didn’t cost me anything…I could at least give it a try, I have nothing to lose :)

    I’ve enjoyed some PSN games with poor reviews (Burn Zombie Burn) while hating other games with great reviews (Braid)

    @Godless
    “There Roca, carl just saved you a load of time”

    I’m still going to give it a try, it was free after all ($30 value) – hopefully Carl also helped you save alot of money by letting you know how shitty XBLG is compared to PSN/PSN+ ;)

    Thank him later!

  11. Godless:

    LOL.

    Braid was shit, reminded me of a crap Amiga platformer rick dangerous, which also got rave reviews despite being utter bollox.

    Cassie is playing Jurassic game, and he’s got a few trophies. so it must be real easy ;)

    played the demo of Resistance 3, really like it, probably shifted up to the next game I’ll get. It’s a close call between this & gears 3.

  12. SW:

    Rick Dangerous was pimpin’.

    Loved the sound when he died. WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

  13. ncaissie:

    Must be the bricks in your house gl.
    JP isn’t too bad. I played it for about an hour. It is just qte.

  14. CarlB:

    @Roca,

    You’re right, it’s not a complete failure considering it was free for us. I feel bad for anyone who actually pays for it. I guess my point is it’s more about time than money now… I’d rather be spending my time in Skyrim than Jurassic Poo.

    I played it last night, and yes, it’s very easy with crappy graphics and baby gameplay. Hydrophobia is much better. As for Burn Zombie Burn, it has gotten generally favorable reviews (76 on MC), whereas JuPoo has a 60, 55, and 33 so far. I’ll probably still go through it for the easy trophies when I have the time, but it is definitely not what I would call a “good” game. “Below mediocre” I think is a good category… or maybe just semi-dried dog “turd” (you know, it just doesn’t smell as bad as the steamy ones).

    @Godless,

    I didn’t care for Braid either, but then again, I’m not big into puzzle games either, are you? I look at genre first, then review scores. Generally speaking, anything below 50 aggregate I won’t touch if I have to buy it. 50-75 I might. 75 or above in my genre and I’m still interested after I read the reviews I’m definitely checking out, with the caveat that I may still be disappointed, but that’s what I have GameFly for. Games like Skyrim you don’t need the aggregate for, just previews and maybe one or two stellar reviews, if that.

  15. oldschool1987:

    “Skyrim you don’t need the aggregate for, just previews and maybe one or two stellar reviews, if that.”

    The thing that got me interested in Skyrim was the fact I put over 200+ hours into Oblivion.

  16. CarlB:

    Same here. That combined with the early information helped me determine my GotY prediction late last year.

  17. CaptBirdman:

    LMAO @ SW

    I remember that stupid game… that “waaaaahhhhh” got annoying because we died so much lol

    Karma.

    The purple didlo makes SR3 is retarded. Only fags would get excited over it

  21. CarlB:

    “The purple didlo makes SR3 is retarded. Only fags would get excited over it”

    I think it’s a very funny idea for a weapon …I’ve never took one in the ass(just saying your logic may be flawed lol).

    Oldie
    “I think it’s a very funny idea for a weapon …I’ve never took one in the ass(just saying your logic may be flawed lol).”

    It’s probably just a little to close to one of cassies fantasies for him to feel comfortable with.
    Instead he shows disgust, a common reaction in closet homosexuals ;)

    hows you relation ship with your father cassie boy? :D
