The 360 has a 3.2ghz tricore power pc processor and an ati gpu doesn't it? Is that what it's recommending? lol --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez

I googled the ATI Xenos, thinking it was some weird workstation card.
The 360 is exactly what the game is recommending.

Ultra settings are meaningless if you're not running the game at 60fps. --- Next gen (Wii U, XB1, PS4) FTW!!!!

A lot of times the requirements are exaggerated just because the developer is lazy and wants to cover their own ass if for some reason the game doesn't run on an "Average" machine. Ie, overstate requirements and then they can just write off it not working on various systems due to not meeting requirements.
Effectively, Saints Row IV is built on the same engine and environments as Saints Row: The Third, with the most "Intense" changes being the addition of powers giving you potential to run through the city faster, and/or activate large amounts of physics objects at once. Otherwise, there are little technical differences.
So that said, SR3's Minimum was:
OS: Windows® XP Processor: 2GHz Dual Core Processor (Intel® Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon™ X2) or higher Memory: 2GB System RAM or more Graphics: 320MB Video RAM GPU w/ Shader Model 3.0 support. NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 series or better. ATI Radeon™ HD3800 series or better DirectX®: 9.0c Hard Drive: 10GB Co-Op Play:NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 cards require 640MB of Video RAM. ATI Radeon™ HD3800 cards require 1GB of Video RAM
Main buff to SRIV's requirements were to the CPU; Though, the GPU takes a reasonable bump to match more recent hardware as well. Making up for any potential performance issues caused by the aforementioned physics and speed enhancements. Yet, despite this, it runs almost exactly the same as SR3 on most systems, based on experience an general consensus of the forums.
TBH, given I'm using a C2D E8400 and a 5770, I *was* a little concerned buying it---But based on it being mostly SR3, I took a chance and didn't have any issues. Runs as well as SR3 did, and it's more than playable (Despite the 60FPS idiocy flailed around above). --- PC: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn233/cody4783/cody4783.jpg
