There are Collector’s Editions, there are Limited Editions, there are even Wub Wub Editions, and now there are Wad Wad Editions. Saints Row 4 and publisher Deep Silver are taking the idea of the “special edition” and pushing it to the extreme with their latest endeavor, and it just might be the most brilliant marketing idea ever.
Unlike the Super Dangerous Wub Wub Edition of Saints Row 4, this special, Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition features a unique set of expensive accoutrements. And it just so happens to come with one of this year’s most anticipated games – a game we are in the process of reviewing at this moment. If there was ever a game to push the boundaries of a special edition to its limits it would be Saints Row 4, and let’s just say the limits were sufficiently pushed.
First, the bad news: there is only edition of the Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition available and that edition costs $1,000,000. Yes, you read that right: one million dollars.
The good news, however, is that this unique edition of Saints Row 4 will significantly change its owner’s life. Enough talk, here’s the full rundown:
- 1 Saints Row IV: Commander in Chief Edition
- 1 Virgin Galactic Space Flight
- 1 Full-Size Replica Dub-Step Gun (a much larger version of the one that ships with the Wub Wub Edition)
- 1 Hostage Rescue Experience
- Plastic Surgery
- Spy Training Day
- A Personal Shopper
- A Capsule Wardrobe
- 7 Nights at the Top Royal Suite of the Burj-Al-Arab in Dubai
- A week-long stay for two at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington DC
- First class flights for the trip to Dubai and Washington DC
- 1 Lamborghini Gallardo
- 1 Toyota Prius and 1 Year’s Worth of Insurance
- A Years Super Car Membership
Now can you see why it costs $1 million and there is only 1 available?
While we highly doubt anyone will actually fork over the cash for the Wad Wad Edition, we still applaud whomever at Deep Silver or Volition that came up with this idea. Saints Row is a franchise that pokes fun at any and every element of the video game industry, so why wouldn’t they introduce something like this? There are even some clever tie-ins to the game, which casts our main character as the President of the United States and gives them super powers.
Oh, and if you happen to be rich enough to purchase this Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition of Saints Row 4? It’s available exclusively at UK retailer GAME. Better act fast because there really is only 1 available.
