Saints Row The Third Full Package

    • Level   9

    Got sent this in a email, so looked online and found more info here:

    .

    With its launch in the middle of a very busy fall last year, not as many gamers got their hands on "Saints Row: The Third" as THQ would have liked. Now, in the middle of an even busier fall game release schedule, THQ is hoping gamers have $50 to invest in "The Full Package" edition. Available Nov. 9, the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game features a cast of characters, including Hulk Hogan.

    .

    The premiere edition of "Saints Row: The Third The Full Package" includes the award-winning, critically-acclaimed, almost universally lauded "Saints Row: The Third"; the three downloadable mission packs "Genkibowl VII," "Gangstas In Space" and "The Trouble With Clones"; and more than 30 bonus DLC items from such hits as the "Shark Attack" pack, "Witches & Wieners" pack, "Special Operations" pack and the "Genki Girl Vehicle" pack. With every weapon, every vehicle and every outfit ever created for "Saints Row: The Third," players will go over the top, off the reservation and to places where no decent game should go.

    .

    "The fans have asked for it, and with the 'Full Package,' we are happy to deliver," said Kevin Kraff, Vice President, Global Brand Management for THQ. "With all the amazing and over-the-top DLC Volition created, the 'Full Package' now stands as the definitive edition of 'Saints Row: The Third.' For anyone that has yet to play this one-of-a-kind game, it's time to strap it on."

    .

    Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and defend yourself against a highly trained military force using only a *** toy in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen, igniting a city-wide war that will set Steelport on fire. Strap it on.

    Now, my copy was damaged by my idiot brother, so I'm thinking of getting this again... and as it has all the DLC bundled in it, the last four DLC I don't have will be included in the game as it should've been from day one. True this is probably just a marketing ploy to get more revenue... but I'm thinking positively here, that it's for the development of Saints Row IV and HOPING that it'll be a better game than SRTT was (not saying it's a bad game... just not as good as the previous one).

    I like that companies do editions like this down the road. I just want to see a confirmed list of exactly what's in it.

    I wont get it myself as I've already gotten all the DLC except the unlockable and invincible packs.

    Looks to be all the DLC. If you never bought the mission packs this would be great. :)

    That's what I'm wondering. The way it's worded in all the links I've read it's not clear if it's all the DLC or not.

    Ah, this is what I've been waiting for. I'll definitely be getting this. I've learned to wait a year to buy any game because the good games usually do something like this. Hopefully it will go on sale on Black Friday and I can get it even cheaper.

    Picked it up Sunday at Best Buy for $25, once again patience wins as usual!

    So excited MS bought the Gears of War franchise and gave it back to Rod.

    Usually, patience is the key. However, if you are someone who doesn't want every DLC, this is not the best option (my opinion, BTW).

    • Level   9

    Why? It's priced really good, so it's not like it's a bad thing.

    @James, all I did was state that not everyone likes DLC, and because of that would not find this "deal" worth it. I also stated and agreed with OP that patience does pay off.

    -----

    Why would I not want to DL all the DLC or why would one not want to? Well, for me, I just don't think it is necessary to own all the DL DLC. It's not worth it, to me, to clutter up my HDD with content I'm not going to use or will use once or twice nd never touch again. There is also no point in deleting it too, since I've already bought it, so to delete it after spending the MS Points is quite pointless. I'm not getting the points back now, am I? Also, I'm VERY selective with my DLC. I pick DLC that will add something new to "my playstyle" (realistic, serious roleplay/ law enforcement). For instance, I currently RP as a detective in Steelport. What DLC benefits me then? Well, for one, the "Steelport Gangs Pack" was one DLC to make it to my Hard Drive. Does "GenkiBowl  VII" sound like it fits my "playstyle"? Hmm, watching scantily-dressed mascots chucking Yarn Balls down the streets of Steelport...yeeeeeeeeeeeeah, I don't think that is on my HDD.

    -----

    My point, James, is that not everyone thinks having all the DLC is important. I simply played "Devil's advocate" and provided the other side of the argument (as I usually do) as it promotes greater discussion and does not just have one side.

    • Level   9

    My point is that you describe it like people are getting shafted by this packaged compilation. It's cheaper than the base game brand new, and you get all the DLC for free, without any obligation to use it at all. So in the case of a complete package game where you get it all for no extra cost, your argument is pointless.

    "Shafted"? Not my point at all. I guess that's just my personal tone when it comes to DLC.

    -----

    I do feel "shafted" by DLC, especially when they don't have something like this "packaged deal" come out right away. Hopefully that sounds more cheery.

    • Level   9

    This has been gaming business practice for nearly a decade now.

    Wait a year and an edition with all or most of the extras will be available. This isn't anywhere remotely new.

    • Level   9

    Agreed.

    • Level   3

    Since getting the DLC off markeplace is such a nightmare, this is a good option.

    • Level   9

    For anyone just getting into the game, it's a gem of an option.
