Just one week ago, THQ launches the Initiation Station for Saints Row: The Third, in anticipation of the games release next week. The Initiation Station allows players to create characters and upload them into the game when it is released, giving players plenty of time to think out their awesome and wild character designs.
THQ announced today that over one million characters had been created using the Initiation Station on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Steam...in just one week!
“The characters we’ve seen are mostly ridiculous, often hilarious, and always over-the-top. And now there are a million of them,” said Kevin Kraff, Vice President, Global Brand, THQ. “With the crazed creativity we’ve seen in only one week, we can’t wait to see what’s to come. One million is just the beginning.”
Some important facts: 1.2 million people have played the Initiation Station so far. The most popular nontraditional skin colors are green, red, and silver metallic. Finally, there are 24 created characters tagged by users as “God,” representing a variety of religious backgrounds.
