At long last, THQ and our friends at PlayStation are proud to unveil additional content for Saints Row: The Third owners on PS3. For all players that purchase Saints Row: The Third on PlayStation 3 and redeem their online pass codes within the next 90 days, they will receive a digital copy of Saints Row 2 (a $19.99 value)… absolutely free!

Go back to a simpler time, when the Saints were vying for control of Stilwater, before they were global icons, a household name, and a criminal empire. Before Professor Genki and the Syndicate, there were the Westside Rollers and the Brotherhood. Enjoy classic Saints Row activities like Septic Avenger, where you spray new homes with sewage in order to devalue property. And of course, enjoy a number of DLC packs brought to you by Volition’s favorite Saints Row 2 producer, Tera Patrick.

Saints Row 2 will be available for free starting early next week for all players who redeem their online pass in each new copy of Saints Row: The Third. The offer expires at midnight on February 13, 2012, so be sure to redeem your online pass before then. And for those of you who have already done so, keep an eye out early next week for the content. This offer applies to the United States, Canada, and Mexico only.

We hope you are as excited about this offer as we are!

Great offer! Never played SR2 so I'm glad I'll be able to now. Wish they were able to add the first to PSN too though :/

That's awesome, I redeemed my online pass today. I hope having redeemed it via qriocity doesn't affect this promotion though, would suck if I didn't get it due to that.

Awesome! :) I was looking at my online pass last night trying to think of a good reason to actually use it. Now I have one.

This is probably to make up for the ps3 exclusive content that was supposed to be in there that wasn't. Total win, glad to have this instead, the second one is awesome

Wow that is really nice. I just bought Saints Row 3 today and I have SR2 on 360, but this is super nice.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Jesus, these guys are just trying to make thier game ever more popular......AND SUCCEEDING!

I have been hyped for many games this year and been let down, Saints Row 3 easily was one of the best games i have been hyped for. Its just so damn fun/hilarious, i know its gonna be a sleeper hit even if it doesnt gain popularity

I won't even get my copy until tomorrow and I already know that I won't be able to play gta after this as it will just be boring.

Would of been nice to know before release. I just bought it on 360 I would of bought PS3 if I had known. I already opened it so it can't go back.

As I said, I doubt this was planned. This is probably because THQ dropped the ball on the ps3 exclusive content so to say sorry (and possibly hold up a contract with sony) they did this.

No difference if you redeem it on PS3 or on Qriocity. The online pass is now in your account. THQ will know it when you play the MP, and Sony can lookup the pass in your transaction history too.

I do want to say that SR3 is in many ways a huge step back from SR2 and the removing cheats from the game to hold back as DLC (The rumor that they are unlockable in game has not been substantiated) is especially annoying. The evil cars cheat? Not currently in the game. I'd bet my bottom dollar it's pulled out for DLC.

That said, SR3 is still quite good, but the elevation it gets is unjustified. At $30, which it will hit soon, it is hard not to recommend for those who want SR style nonsense, but even as someone who loved SR2 the SR style is patchy enough now that I won't be back for the fourth iteration.

Glad I opted for the PS3 version. I ALMOST got the 360 version instead when I pre-ordered and would have been pissed if I found out later SR2 was free only with the PS3 version.

I own SR2 on PC. I am fine with another free copy for PSN since the SR2 port is shitty.

Also I can't wait for the CheapyD DLC. If he says Big Ass Chains, I am gonna lose it.

Yeah, same here #-o I picked it up during Kmart's Buy one Get one 50% off promotion. I chose the Xbox 360 version due to the earlier titles being technically better on the 360 according to The Digital Foundry. I would have gladly put up with some low FPS and screen tears here and there for a free game :cry:

Copied from ign.com

With Saints Row: The Third out this week, Sony and THQ had a bit of a problem. After all, Sony's Jack Tretton promised an "over the top" exclusive multiplayer game mode and a "signature weapon" that would be only for PlayStation 3 gamers. Yet, the final product had no such mode or weapon.

But today, THQ revealed that the publisher is ready to make it up to PlayStation 3 gamers.

According to THQ's Jon Miller, "For all players that purchase Saints Row: The Third on PlayStation 3 and redeem their online pass codes within the next 90 days, they will receive a digital copy of Saints Row 2 (a $19.99 value)... absolutely free!"

The offer is for the digital version of Saints Row 2 that came to PSN some time ago, and expires on February 13, 2012.

Anyone got an Extra Online Pass Code For Me? if so please pm

Someone posted the idea on the joystiq.com blogpost about this, about just buying the $10 online-pass from the PSN Store...and possibly getting SR2 for basically half off? No way to be certain until THQ starts sending out the vouchers, but it seems...plausible?

IDK.

Unless of course the codes in the retail games have some unique qualifier that flags your account as having actually 'purchased' that game, but it might be worth it for someone to check it out.

Hmmmmmmmm. Think this might be what pushes me over the edge into doing the K-Mart B1G1/2 for Skyrim and SR3. Neither of those are scheduled for Black Friday sales as is.
