Saints Row: The Third Footage, Lay-offs

While April 1st saw everyone oh-so hilariously lying about their products to create pointless confusion for gamers, it did also see a rather good sort-of-prank-but-actually-just-a-good-joke-even-if-it-weren't-International-Lying-Day-and-isn't-a-lie-either from Volition for Saints Row: The Third. Advertised as the first in-game footage, it's - well, it's exactly that. It's below. There's also some sadder news.

Actual gameplay footage.

The weekend also brought the rather sad news that THQ have had a round of lay-offs, which has seen sixteen employees go in a round of "adjustments". We wish those affected the very best, and hope they'll be snapped up soon. THQ told Gama that they didn't think it would affect the release dates of any of their games. And, more importantly for those out of work, that "team members affected by the transition are treated with appropriate concern."
