THQ recently announced that Saints Row: The Third is scheduled for release on the 360, PS3, and Windows PC (sorry Mac guys). According to THQ Executive Vice President Danny Bilson this games starts off with you at the head of the Third Street Saints who are now an elite criminal orginazation. This means that "There’s no delivering pizza, no shuttling family members about in a long series of taxi missions. Instead, you take all the power of the Third Street Saints and you take the world by storm." So hopefully there will be less pointless missions as are pretty standard in free roaming games, at least from my experiance.
So what is the games point? Well now the Thrid Street Saints are a household name complete with their own products such as sneakers, energy drinks and even bobble heads. But all this comes at a price at they have garnered attention from The Syndicate (BUM BUM BUMMMMMMMMMM). The Syndicate is a global criminal fraternity and now demands the that Saints pay them tribute. Being who you are you bow to no man (that is what go you to where you are now afterall) and the battle begins. Look forward to even more outlandish gameplay then we had in the previous games this holiday season.
