It looks like Deep Silver’s acquisition of the Saint’s Row franchise from the smouldering wreck of THQ has paid off quite nicely; Saint’s Row IV has sold over a million copies in its launch week, which is not a thing to be sneezed at.
“We are incredibly happy of the reception for Saints Row IV as a critical and now a commercial success,” said Klemens
ThundertitsKundratitz, CEO of parent company Koch Media. “The development team at Volition is second-to-none as a driving creative force in the entertainment industry and we are very proud to have them as part of the Deep Silver family.”
Saint’s Row IV is an absolute barrel of laughs, and is way more fun than it has any right to be, throwing crazy super-powers in to an already crazy game; very nearly like a spiritual successor to Crackdown.
On that note, the game’s getting its first bits of DLC today in the form of Presidential and Grass Roots packs. The Presidential Pack includes masks of four influential US presidents – Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Barack Obama and George W. Bush and is an absolute waste of $3, while the Grassroots pack, also a waste of money, contains farm-inspired costumes, a gun that shoots plungers and a double-barrelled monster shotgun.
