I'm gonna have to agree with Jaytow. Rockstar doesn't find the Saints Row series as competition so they will never alter their original plan for that game. Although (similar to what Xan said but not quite) Saints Row 2 has more RE-playability unlike GTA. Only reason for that is their co-op feature which I wouldn't be surprised if the next GTA has that feature incorporated this time around. Because even though Rockstar doesn't find Saints Row as competition, there are things that they use from the series which are actually good ideas and a hit with the fans and instill it in their games.
