Trivia

  • The PC manual for Saints Row 2 erroneously states that the "pickup" button is the same as the "action" button.[1]
  • In Saints Row: The Third, there is only one Control Scheme for Xbox 360, while there have been 3 options in each of the previous games.
  • In Saints Row IV on PC, the on-screen tutorial text incorrectly states that followers are recruited after holding the control. Pressing the control recruits, and holding it dismisses.[2]
