Looks like something may finally come close to Outlaws, or even surpass it. The only downside is no PC - except a possible shitty port a year or so onward which is typical of Rockstar. THat sucks because RDR would be so much better served on the PC.
Looking forward to Mafia 2 and Red Dead Redemption (yes, I love open world/sandbox games).

The PC version of SR2 is a far far far worse port than GTAIV.

Good to know, thanks.. Will check out Saints Row 2 :).

I don't think he was referring to the quality of porting to PC, but rather to the game itself. Huge sandbox city and storyline was done well.
I wouldn't exactly call GTA IV a "benchmark", unless you want to call it a benchmark for how NOT to port something to the PC.

GTA IV is definitely the benchmark and I'll be very impressed (and pleasantly surprised) if they can surpass it.
