There is only one week until gamers make a return trip to the mean streets of Stilwater in Saint's Row: The Third, but another milestone has just been met. The Initiation Station demo, that was released about a week ago, allowed players to create their optimal thug. According to Volition, the Initiation Station created characters have now hit the 1 million mark.
Kevin Kraff, Vice President of Global Branding at THQ said, "The characters we’ve seen are mostly ridiculous, often hilarious, and always over-the-top. And now there are a million of them...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 of the other statistics that Volition has shared are quite interesting as well. Apparently, the most popular skin tones, aside from the traditional ones, tended to be green, red and silver. Along with 24 characters created with the title of "God" and representing a variety of religious backgrounds. I guess only in Stilwater can you find Christian "God" teaming up with silver-skinned Lao Tzu or a red and metallic Bhudda to take on a luchador street gang for control of Steel Port.
