The sandbox just got larger with a totally transformed and expanded city of Stilwater, offering all new locations to explore with new vehicles, including motorcycles, boats, helicopters and planes.

Developed by THQ internal studio Volition, Inc., Saints Row 2 is anticipated to be available for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system in 2008."
