    I will definitely be getting it, but will be waiting maybe a week or so to get peoples reactions first, as there are a few things in the demo that I am hoping have improved in the full release.

    What!? A laggy Xbox 360 game on Live at launch!? Preposterous!

    Seriously, has there even been one game that doesn't lag online when launched. They all get fixed eventually, but it's a good thing I don't buy games for the online side.

    The game is great. If you like GTA then you'll really enjoy saints row. Saints Row is a bit easier imo too.

    The US version is region free so there is a good chance the Asian release will also be region free but we wont know for sure until its released.

    Does anyone think there will be any major improvements or changes to the full game? (not saying it needs it)

    Definately getting this :D

    I'm going see about trading Oblivion and Hitman for it on Friday.

    How much do you reckon I'll have to pay in Gamesatan if I trade in those 2?

    Both are mint as they havent been palyed for more than a few hours each.

    You should get about between 36 and 42 for them. They won't pay more for better condition, maybe try selling them on here you could get more.

    Those prices are good enough for me tbh. It's enough to buy Saint's Row (games are £39.99 in Gamestation arent they?).

    I would sell on here but for the few extra pennies I might make I'd rather save myself the hassle of postage and just trade them in.

    Cheers ;)

    If you are willing to wait though you might want to get the Asian release of Saints Row because chances are good it will be region free plus it will only be about £25 delivered which means selling just one of those games on here would pretty much pay for it.

    You mean the one in the stores? Just hold up the staff and they open it for you.

    How do you hold up staff, i'm sure i've read that you can rob stores etc, is there a button i need to press or do you just shoot them. I've had one person ring the alarm just before i shot her :D but can i rob stores and get money?

    You have to have your gun aimed at their head constantly, then they'll walk you through to the back of the store and open the safe for you. Then I usually kill them anyway cos I'm nice like that ;)

    If you stop aiming at their head they'll just stand still or try and ring the alarm.

    I think you can go into the stores at night an break the safe open. I think that is what he means.

    Yup you can just break in during the night to steal from the safe, gotta be quick tho.......other than that just walk in, shoot the seller before he/she hits the alarm, and do the combination like usual, easy money! :D
