i found it hard in the second saints row to complete 50 hours of gameplay cause
the story is merely 30-35 hours long, with the side missions and activities
included and it's a bit hard to spend like 15-20 more hours into the game after
completing everything :(

if I can't put 30 hours into this game we have a serious problem. I can't
imagine putting less then 50.

@6 you found 50 hours to long? They could put it at over 100 and i would be fine with it! I love the game and still play it after i completed every thing in game! I'll still be playing it until SR3 comes out!

yea i mean combine single player and co-op and that's more than enough to get this achievement. hell, i have close to 100 hours combined in sr 2, which is mostly just single player! but, still 30 hours is nothing :)

Sounds like 30 hours spent well to me.

@6 That's why you should try and play in friends games! That helps a lot when you're just messing around in a friends game.

To get this faster, I'm just going to go into a safe house and leave my game on and go to bed, do this a couple times a bam, easy 40.

Easy as, when I feel like bashing people with Giant Dildos, Saints row will be there. When I want to skydive topless from a building, Saints row will be there. God Bless Saints row!

Yea im having the same issue 31 hours no achievment

Sunday, November 27, 2011 @ 05:53:39 AM

This achievement sure proves that the game is kinda short. I got every activity and city takeover in 29 hours(6 car theft to go). but just screwing around will take up a lot more.

@18 why would you go to bed when you can play this game. just playing the game will bring you close to 30 hours.

Pretty much just got this playing through the game and then doing the sidequests. I mean, I'd be pretty annoyed if I didn't atleast get 30 hours play time out of the game anyway.

found it quite difficult, just trying to fend off the boredom after everythings been done, still need to waste another 4 hours!

Comment #31 by DaSportsman
Friday, December 30, 2011 @ 06:38:53 PM

Easy as hell, when im done for the night ill just leave the game on overnight and rack it up :)

Saturday, December 31, 2011 @ 04:50:26 AM

I am up to 34hrs and nothing. I have tried clearing my cache on the hard drive loading an old save thats at 29hrs 56mins, and restarting my xbox with no luck. anyone else know what to do since this is the only achievement that doesn't seem to want to work for me?

Comment #33 by anton_bp
Saturday, December 31, 2011 @ 01:41:58 PM

If i play 25 h, for example, then want to to a second playtrough, will it counts on the same time or does the "timer" restart?

Comment #34 by ROBOTYX
Sunday, January 01, 2012 @ 05:29:16 PM

I am at 32 hours and still nothing! >:( is it because I left the game on or something? I did it with a wired controller so it didn't disconnect or anything..

Comment #35 by Brenttouza

For those who had problems with the achievement. I found something.

The time that shows up when you save is not the real time! You need to do this.

Press back -> Extras -> Stats -> Total Time Played.

The save timer said I have played for 32 hours, but the extras said I was playing for 29:59:30 xD. I had to wait for 30 seconds and the achievement popped!

Hope this helped.

Yeah every time you access your phone it pauses your total time played

This is very easy if your a fan of SR3 and love the concept. I have already got 60hrs done in my Steelport and I havent got bored yet!

Comment #42 by DannyGT500
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 @ 09:26:02 AM

So I completed the game in like 14 hours, If I started again with a female character, would them hours count onto my first dude?

Comment #43 by Killerchronic
Thursday, March 22, 2012 @ 12:09:16 PM

@33 No game in the world would ask you to play for 30 hours straight, would be a huge uproar, not to mention basically everyone would just leave their xbox on and sleep.

This one was pretty easy. I think I ended up spending a good 60 hours haha.

Comment #47 by Whiteboy6155
Tuesday, October 02, 2012 @ 12:51:16 AM

To be honest im more than happy to spend 30 hours on this game even if it was 60 I would have probably got it :P

Comment #48 by Yoccj

I bet the game in under 30 hours, and felt like getting this achievement, leave you xbox on over night.

Comment #49 by OmegaStrainer
Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 04:19:36 PM

Lukes super easy! Not kidding. I got the game about maybe a week ago. And I already have 14 hours played. Ive beaten main campaign and probably gonna get the DLC's soon

Comment #50 by OllieRG
Wednesday, December 05, 2012 @ 06:35:44 AM

Read the achievement, it says spend over 30 hours in Steelport, doesn't count if the game's paused, I had 100% after 20 hours so I just left it overnight and got it, make sure to change your controller settings so that it doesn't power off after 20 minutes

Comment #51 by SeanPCannon
Friday, December 07, 2012 @ 01:14:00 AM

Thank you comment #35 for that tip, total time played is different from the save file to the actual time. it might not count time during cutscenes? that would explain why it's a few minutes less (15 minutes less about, for me, after completing the game

Comment #52 by A Punk Panther
Tuesday, November 12, 2013 @ 09:38:33 PM

Got 100% completion and all other achievements in under 20 hours. Time to buy the DLC in order to last out the last 10+

Comment #53 by AngelCakeTom
Friday, May 23, 2014 @ 11:16:29 AM

definetly does not unlock 'naturally' all i have left now is the last 4 survivals and i have less than 25 hours racked up.

A tip for getting the last survivals. walk into any crib, unequip weapons, wait 5 minutes and the phone will ring, just repeat this over and over, does not matter what area you are in it will trigger one at random.

Comment #54 by Sock828
Friday, May 23, 2014 @ 09:01:23 PM
