$1,000,000 for a game. Saints Row 4 can’t be that good, can it?
Ok now, really, this is just getting silly. We’ve had the dub step edition, the commander in chief edition, the wear-your-pants-on-your-head-and-smoke-a-banana edition, but surely there must be some point at which we, as a gaming community hold up our hands and go ‘These special editions for marketing purposes are going just a smidgen too far’.
The $1,000,000 Wad Wad edition of Saints Row 4 is apparently an exclusive to Game, and I genuinely can’t see anyone who wants to buy this game ACTUALLY spending a million dollars to do so, so all this really is is a cheap (relatively speaking) marketing ploy designed to grab some attention and headlines. There’s only one available and includes ‘plastic surgery’ as a perk. I keep checking the calendar, and it turns out it’s not April, and part of me really wants to see if anyone actually takes them up on it.
Between this, and overt usage of porn actresses in marketing, I’m starting to think the Saints Row PR department is entirely staffed by twelve year old boys.
