In a recent video interview with AusGamers, Saints Row: The Third Lead Designer, Scott Phillips, shrugged off any concerns about launching their open-world over-the-top sandbox spoof alongside other November heavy-hitters, calling many of them out for not changing their spots and remaining largely unchanged.

"Looking at everybody else that’s out in November, obviously there’s a lot of huge games," he told us. "But I think everyone can also see that a lot of those games are basically the same as they were last year, and the year before and the year before. And I think that we are something that’s brand new; totally different."

"We’re not trying to teach you a lesson or make you cry, we want you to just laugh and have a blast the whole time," he added.

The full video interview and transcript talks about balancing "guilty pleasure gaming" with a bit of maturity as well as touches on social features such as sharing player-generated screenshots and videos. Oh, and sex.

Should have asked them if they were gonna do another great port like Saints Row 2, or actually release a PC game.

Y'know, one that doesn't require a CPU to be running at about 3.2ghz to run correctly...

Or one that runs on a GTX580 and a 4ghz quad core...
