In a quote from THQ's Danny Bilson, he states that:

"We don't compete with GTA. We're differentiating even further with GTA with this one. The new Saint's Row will be less urban - it's definitely not about 'gangsta' anymore at all. And it's more fun and almost sillier and wackier and weirder than the other one.

I love GTA - especially the last one, which knocked my socks off. That's almost like a Martin Scorsese cartoon, right? We are more like the Mad Magazine version of that or something. It's colourful, it's wild, it's fun. "

What are your opinions on this new attitude/approach that they seem to be taking? Are you completely cool with it or do you believe that this is going to hurt the Saints Row 3?

I think this will be a cool way to go with saints row 3, 2010-08-13T02:25:45Z
I myself will love the sillyness but probably will miss the more Gangsta style too. But It will be worth it for sure!, 2010-08-13T08:23:22Z
the silliness was always what put saints row miles above GTA, so this is nothing but good news, 2010-08-14T01:44:52Z
I don't see how it can be a saints row game that's not about gangs. That's an oxymoron if you ask me., 2010-08-14T08:15:58Z
It's a good idea but I think it still should have a gangsta style since...that is the point of Saints Row

i think its going to be cool, 2010-08-14T22:44:06Z
it is a good idea and all but keep the gang style in there to because that is what makes saints row..saints row

I'm thinking they are going to say it's more upbeat and silly in comparision to something like Vice City, It's suppose to be brighter and more over the top.

It won't be gang-syle free, just less of it. personally, there could have been a little less in Saints Row 2.

I just hope that they would do something about the graphics. I'd be satisfied with Red Faction: Guerilla graphics.
Master Sima Yi, 2010-08-16T20:50:27Z
I agree. Saints row is cartoony, so it's graphics shouldn't be as good as GTA's Red Faction: Guerilla graphics would be perfect., 2010-08-18T00:51:57Z
^Up above was from me^
Spedster777, 2010-08-18T00:59:08Z
I personally think that it was fine the way it was., 2010-08-19T13:31:21Z
I hope it wont loose all of the urban style and that it won't get too silly. It should be a mixture of SR2's siliness and SR's seriousness,that'd be awesome., 2010-08-19T14:51:38Z
I think it would be a huge gain, all the wacky stuff you could do in saints row 2 really made the game., 2010-08-22T05:00:24Z
Can't it just stay the same amount of seriousness, silliness etc as it was in SR2?, 2010-08-24T11:10:33Z
