Within the first few months that the PlayStation 3 went on sale in the US and Japan, games which had previously been slated as PS3 platform-exclusive titles--including Assassin's Creed, Unreal Tournament III, Fatal Inertia, and Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War--were announced as branching out to other platforms.
Now, one major Xbox 360 title has been announced as jumping the other way and heading to the PS3. THQ has confirmed rumours that Saints Row will be skidding and blasting its way onto the platform in the second quarter of 2007. The game will be playable online via the PlayStation Network, but the publisher made no mention of what PS3-exclusive additions, if any, would be made.
Saints Row is an open-ended action game in which players star as a member of the 3rd Street Saints gang in the city of Stilwater, exploring the vast urban sprawl and battling rival gangs. For more on the game, check out the review of the Xbox 360 version.
