The big question this holiday season is which first-person shooter do you buy — Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3? Well, if it were up to THQ and Voliton, Inc., they would introduce a third option into that equation — Saints Rows: The Third. The latest trailer for Saints Row: The Third pokes fun at the two blockbuster war franchises, starting with a nod to the Modern Warfare announcement trailers, and ending with the familiar static and music of the Battlefield 3 ads.

Look, we’re obviously excited for both Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3. But Saints Row: The Third makes a good case for itself. We don’t see hover bikes in either Battlefield of Modern Warfare, do you? Point, Saints Row: The Third.
