Saints Row: The Third 'pushes boundaries with sex appeal'

'But doesn't cross the line' says developer

Volition's Drew Homes has said he thinks that Saints Row: The Third pushes the boundaries, particularly with sex appeal, but doesn't cross the line.

Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine Holmes was asked just how taboo he things the game is and if he is worried about how the media will react to the game.

He responded by saying the studio "certainly push the boundaries - particularly with stuff like the 'sex appeal' slider'", but went on to show that Volition was mindful of overstepping its bounds.

"You never want to cross the line into crudely offensive", he said, "it's a thin line to walk, but you know when you've crossed it - and as long as it stays irreverent and tongue-in-cheek, then we can push it a lot further than if we were trying to play it serious".

Holmes went on to say that the advantage Saints Row has is that it's "not even trying to be serious" and is clearly a "cartoony, outlandish game", which helps take "some of the bullets out of the media gun".
