The Saints Row Reboot reveal trailer gets more hate than likes on YouTube and is clearly dividing the community.
The first trailer for Saints Row Reboot split players on YouTube, while developer Volition made it clear that they wouldn’t succumb to the pressure.
The three most-watched versions of Reveal Trailer on the official YouTube channels for PlayStation, Xbox and Saints Row have an unusually high number of dislikes. The three videos have been viewed about a million times and have garnered around 70,000 user interactions.
Interestingly enough, the trailer on the official Saints Row channel has a much worse rate of likes and dislikes than the others. The video received about 50 percent and 54 percent positive feedback, respectively, on the PlayStation and Xbox channels.
However, developer Volition has made it clear that he won’t change his vision for the game based on initial feedback.
“We’re not going to hold back on this game. We’ve got it, it’s new and it’s a shocking reaction to a reboot like no other.”
