Saints Row: The Third Gets No Ordinary Pre-Order Promotion


I am a sucker for Collector Editions and especially pre-order bonus’s. I mean, come one, getting free stuff for pre-ordering a game I already I know I am going to buy?! It’s a no-brainer. With today’s announcement from THQ about the pre-order promotion they are doing for Saints Row: the Third, it’s safe to say I will be pre-ordering this game as soon as I am finished writing this.

For those of you who decide to put your money down on the new Saints Row due out in November, you will receive the Professor Genki’s  Hyper Ordinary Pre-Order Pack for free! This pre-order bonus will come jam packed with:

  • Professor Genki’s Super Ballistic Man-a-pult:

Cruise Steelport in style with this vacuum-action human-cannonball truck. Suck up pedestrians and use them as live ammunition against the forces of evil, and everyone else.

Now, I saw this thing in action during our E3 demo and was quite entertained with sucking up people as they innocently walk by and then violently shooting them out while watching their bodies smack on the side of a building like a fly on a windshield. The bloody mess left behind was just an added bonus.

  • Professor Genki’s “Octopuss” Cannon:

Fire baby octopi onto your enemies’ heads! Watch as the octopi massage their scalps and your enemies fight for you! Enemies can be friends too!

  • Professor Genki’s Leisure Stunt Suit:

The ultimate in comfort and tight-fitting apparel, the Genki Leisure Stunt Suit is perfect for skydiving over Steelport or to wear while ejecting from high-flying fighter jets. Free Genki mask included!


So, all of that still wasn’t enough for ya?! Ok, how about this, the Collectors Edition of Saints Row: the Third will also come with the in-game soundtrack and a custom Saints Row headset, with an auto-tuned voice processing feature inspired by Zimos the pimp. You know you want it.

Also, if you are one of the first 3,000 players to purchase Saints Row: The Third from the THQ Online Store in North America you will receive the Saints Row Season Pass absolutely free. The Saints Row Season Pass will includes three downloadable mission packs.

I love it when developers reward me for buying a game I know I will love. It’s like getting free gifts for being entertained by mindless killing and over the top violence. Thank you THQ!
