PS3 Version of Saints Row 3 Includes Saints Row 2 Download Code

November 16, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

Update: THQ have extended the offer to Europe as well.

Consumers were understandably outraged when it was revealed that the promised PS3-exclusive content for Saints Row: The Third was nowhere to be seen, with THQ not helping matters by refusing to comment on the matter. Luckily, it seems like the publisher and SCEA were just a bit slow with revealing what was planned, with Sony now revealing gamers will get Saints Row 2 absolutely free.

SCEA has announced that all players that purchase Saints Row: The Third on PlayStation 3 and redeem their online pass codes within the next 90 days (midnight February 13th, 2012) will receive a digital copy of Saints Row 2 for free (usually $19.99). The game will be available starting next week, but the offer sadly applies to the United States, Canada and Mexico only.

The timing of the announcement is rather odd, as many multiplatform owners may have preordered or bought another version already, but it is still a fantastic deal for PS3 owners in the Americas.

Are you happy with this offer? Let us know in the comments below.
