Want to have a say in what goes into the Saints Row IV Collectors Edition? Well, Deep Silver is giving you that chance.
The publisher will be producing a special edition for the upcoming open-world sequel, but they want to make sure it's "worth buying." And what better way to do that than to toss up a public survey ?
Options include a t-shirt ("Department of Homeland Saintcurity"), a voice augmentation or audio tune device, a presidential briefcase with "kinky handcuff and key," a Saint's bazooka-themed Poster Tube, a cloth world map, a steelbook case, and an "Eagle Jet" RC Helicopter. Rate each item on a scale of 1 (HELL NO!) to 5 (AWWWW YEAH!) and then see if your favorite picks become featured in the Collector's Edition. The survey also asks if you've got a console preference, and how many special editions you purchased in 2012. You're pretty selective about buying those, right?
Deep Silver likes doing this. They did something similar for the upcoming Dead Island Riptide and fans seemed to like it a lot. The publisher nabbed the rights to the popular Saints Row franchise when the now-defunct THQ had to sell off their assets. Deep Silver got the IP for $22.3 million, which could turn out to be a very good deal…

Why not give us a season pass that actually included all of the DLC produced for the game? Price it accordingly, but don't nickel-and-dime us.
A replica of the penetrator….
I'm too embarrassed to say.
So, a "good game" is out of the question, huh?
Alright, I'll give. How about the RC Eagle Jet? Could always use another RC toy. Heck, I'll buy the game just for the toy.
More game developers and publishers need to come together and employ this model, I think it would be infinitely more popular than just taking whatever they want to give us.
