The pimps, hoes and other assorted citizens of Saints Row are ready to return August 26 on Xbox 360 and PS3. IGN
reports the release date was announced at THQ's Gamers' Day event held in San Francisco. The official Saints Row 2 website
is now up and blinged to the nines with ghetto fabulousness.
Late August seems like enough breathing room between SR2
and GTA IV
to give the game a chance. Then again, depending on how over-the-top Saints Row 2
ends up being, it could carve out its own niche. We're just looking forward to some co-op play,
because you gotta have friends to survive in the ghetto ... and a pimp hat, yeah, we're gonna need big pimp hats.
