Saints Row IV Special Edition... Only $1 Million Dollars.

The carnage simulator series Saints Row is really starting to make a reputation for itself when it comes to crazy promotional materials. Back in 2011 the third game in the series was heavily criticised for using pornstars to promote sales before its release, and now the upcoming Saints Row IV is set to raise the bar of ridiculousness even further.

Starting on August 23rd, a completely one-of-a-kind special edition of Saints Row IV will be available from Game. The “Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition” will have exactly one copy, priced at $1,000,000. Yes, you read that right – one million dollars.

As well as including the “Commander in Chief” special edition of the game, plus a real-life replica of the game's iconic (and utterly ludicrous) Dubstep Gun, the “million dollar pack” also entitles its buyer to a week trip to both Dubai and Washington DC, flight and board; a space flight on Virgin Galactic; plastic surgery; a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Toyota Prius plus one year's insurance an one year's Super Car membership; some real-life military training exercises such as a hostage rescue experience and a spy training day – and more.

I mean, when you put it that way, that's probably some really good value for your money.

You can check out all the rest of the details on this completely insane pack at Game's website. And if you're the kind of person with much more money than sense, feel free to get in touch with the game's publishers at makemeasaint@deepsilver.com – I'm sure they'll be happy to hear from you. 

Saints Row IV is set to be released on the 23rd of August in the UK and will be available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
