Talking with EGTV’s Johnny Minkley at the THQ Gamer’s Day 08 in San Francisco, Volition’s Scott Philips said that GTA and Saints Row 2 will be ahead of the pack by the end of the year.

“We think there is going to be two dogs at the end of this,” he said. “You’re going to have GTA and Saints Row 2 and then everybody else.”

Philips added: “You have a GTA vs Saints Row 2 type thing going on. We’re going one way, GTA’s going the other way and the greatest thing about this year for open-world fans is that you’re going to have both.”

“[Rockstar’s] going with the realistic, we’re going for the hyper-realistic.”
