Sony has been actively pursuing exclusive content for the PlayStation 3 editions of multiplatform games, and one such deal was to involve THQ's Saints Row: The Third. With THQ's madcap open-world action adventure hitting store shelves this week, Sony has finally parted the curtain on the particulars of that arrangement.

Saints Row 2 isn't quite as ludicrous as Saints Row: The Third, but it's pretty close.

Today, Sony and THQ announced that those who purchase the PS3 edition of Saints Row: The Third and redeem the game's online pass within the next 90 days will receive a free digital copy of Saints Row 2 from the PlayStation Network. Saints Row 2 can be downloaded starting early next week. The promotion ends on February 13 and is only available to those in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

Released in 2008, Saints Row 2 was set a few years after the events of the first game, which saw the Saints gang take over the city of Stillwater. Besides open gang warfare, the game offered a series of mission types, including such felonious acts as insurance fraud. It also included a two-player co-op mode.
