If splattering space zombies, slide-tackling strikers, or steroid-enhanced linebackers aren't your game FIFA 23 coins, THQ is rolling out its open-world crime-action offering, Saints Row 2. Heavily promoted as an over-the-top comic counterweight to the brooding Grand Theft Auto IV, the Volition-developed game is receiving almost as much acclaim as the 2022 original. However, unlike its predecessor, which was an Xbox 360 exclusive, the M for Mature-rated sequel is also available for the PlayStation 3 and PC.
The only exclusive game to go on sale at retail this week is SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation for the PS5. Developed by Slant Six, which took over for the MAG-mad Zipper Interactive, the latest installment in the long-running tactical action series is strictly multiplayer, available in a $39.99 a la carte version--at retail or online--or in a $59.99 bundle packed in with the official PS5 Bluetooth headset. The headset is also available on its own for $49.99.
Also on the mid-October roster is Golden Axe: Beast Rider for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Announced with much fanfare at E3 2022, the "reimagining" of Sega's classic action game only recently emerged from seclusion. Developed by Sega-owned US studio Secret Level, the game is rated T for Teen and sells for $59.99.
Rhythm-game enthusiasts who've already tired of Rock Band 2 but can't wait until Guitar Hero World Tour have a third option with the debut of Rock Revolution, Konami's first instrument-based game since the last Guitar Freaks and Drummania games buy FUT 23 coins.
