Saints Row: The Third Bonus Goodies

SR3 PS3 CE BB Image.jpg

I know some of you enjoyed the first couple of Saints Row games, so I thought you might be interested in what THQ has planned for Saints Row: The Third as far as pre-order and Platinum Edition goodies. So Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax is a bizarre, violent and wacky game show in the game, so naturally, they're using that as a basis for the pre-order bonuses.

If you pre-order Saints Row: The Third, you'll get Professor Genki's Hyper Ordinary Pre-Order Pack absolutely free! It contains Professor Genki's Super Ballistic Man-a-pult, which is a vacum-action human-cannonball truck. You can suck up pedestrians and use them as ammunition! You'll also get Professor Genki's "Octopuss" Cannon, which lets you fire baby octopi onto your enemies heads to pleasure their scalps enough to turn them over to your side! Cute! There's also the Professor Genki's Leisure Stunt Suit, which is apparently perfect for skydiving or being ejected from fighter jets — and it comes with a free Genki mask! It's super-creepy!

Then there's the collector's edition, which they're calling the Saints Row: The Third Platinum Pack Collector's Edition, I guess because it sounds even more impression. This edition will also include the game's soundtrack and a custom Saints Row headset featuring an auto tune voice processing feature inspired by Zimos the pimp. I gotta give 'em credit for creativity with the auto tune headset, but you'll note that it's not compatible with Xbox LIVE or the PlayStation Network. They seem to want you to use it with your cell phone... which is just weird.

Oh, but that's not all! In North America, the first 3,000 players to buy Saints Row: The Third from the THQ Online Store in North America on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC or Steam will get the Saints Row Season Pass for free. The pass includes three downloadable mission packs valued at $20. So take your pick!

Wait, so one of the few things they showed off in the very FIRST public gameplay trailer (the man-a-pult) is going to be only available via DLC? I'm going to buy it because I'm a sucker for Saints Row, but that's really ridiculous.

Are those headphones usable on regular devices, like on a (3)DS or PSP?
A bit confused due to the whole not working with Xbox Live and PSN thing.

Hopefully they bring their amazing customization back, and still allow male characters to wear female clothing, use female hairstyles or even have feminine curves (including breasts, if you so pleased.) I've seen games that allow for a bit of drag, but I'd never seen a game so open as to actually have transgender options until Saint's Row 2.

@mettux: Really? They put it in a trailer? Well, that's just a little bit rude.

@Nexus: Yes, the headphones are good with anything with a normal-sized 3.5MM headphone jack.

Yeah, they featured the Man-a-Pault in one of the walkthrough/introductions to the game videos after E3. Prior to this being named pre-order content.

It's fine to me, I'm a guaranteed customer after SR2's great co-op storymode and hilarious over the top storyline. Looking forward to it!

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
