Janco’s Hickey shows Saints Row 2 trailer the hand

Wednesday, 11th June 2008 20:16 GMT By Mike

Mike Hickey from Janco Partners has turned his analytical nostrils up at THQ’s funny Saints Row 2 trailer, released last week.

“The trailer directly attacks Grand Theft Auto IV in game content, an unusually pompous position in our view, considering GTA IV is estimated to be the highest grossing 1st week entertainment release of all time,” argued Hickey from an unusually defensive standpoint for someone who has nothing to do with GTA.

“We remain conservative on our sales expectations for Saint’s Row 2,” added Hickey, “in light of mediocre game previews and a delayed release in-part from quality concerns.”

Handbags, gentleman.

Thanks Gamasutra.

    Bollocks. Nice to see THQ / Volition growing a pair and taking the similarities head on.

    Wasn’t GTAIV delayed for the same reason?

    Still, I think this guy might have missed the whole point of the trailer…
