Its not GTAV but seems like solid alternative, at least until GTAV don't arrive (if ever arrives).

Well that's random. It's a good game though.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Why not Saints Row 4? Seems really random



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Wow let's port a 7 year old game for no reason lol

glad this wasnt a bet, id lose big time.

though its old, id pick it up for cheap. not for anything over $30.

I have to agree this is really random



Nothing to see here, move along

It seems that Saints Row Third is best game in series (has best critics on PS3/360) and generaly its good game, and I guess THQ Nordic think this game could be good alternative to GTAV thats still not available on Switch.

This is considered the best game in the series and frankly its just a good game. If it does well I'm sure they will port Saint's Row IV as well.

Frankly, if GTAV coming then there may be demand for alternatives. I'd like to see Sleeping Dogs on Switch.

It seems like the development team is extremely small and in their current state they can't afford to port/remaster the first two Saints Row games to ANY platform due problems with the original code, so this was their only option to bring the series on Switch, it also seems to be the fans' favourite entry in the series

If I'm not mistaken Liam Robertson mentioned Sleeping Dogs a few times when speaking about Switch ports but I don't know if it's some rumor or his personal wish

Not a fan of SR, but if it opens the gate for GTAV, then bring it on.
