Yep, you read that right, theres an edition of Saints Row IV set to cost one-million dollars, roughly 16,700 times more expensive than the standard copy youll find in stores. The Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition (you try and come up with a name to justify that price tag) will only be available for one lucky buyer, so better start saving those pennies now kids! Obviously it does include a little more than just a few figurines and an art book, which is the route most non-insane game devs go down when coming up with what to include in their collectors editions, so the deal isnt quite as ridiculous as you mightve first thought. Putting aside some of the less important bonuses, purchasing the lavishly priced bundle will give you a copy of Saints Row IV, a ticket for a Virgin Galactic space flight, a day of spy training (whatever that is), a personal shopper, a hostage rescue experience, seven days in Dubai, seven days in Washington, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Toyota Prius, and whatever plastic surgery your heart desires. We should clarify you get all that in the real world, not as in game bonus, in case theres any confusion (which there probably wasnt). If we put our sceptic hats on though its pretty obvious this offer is simply a publicity stunt for the game, as THQs demise and the hype around all the other games coming out this year might have left the new management worrying about the titles prospects. Anyone with enough money to buy it likely also has enough sense not to want to, yet perhaps there's some eccentric out there who has been waiting for all these extravagances to be grouped together before taking the push and paying for them. However, if the sale isnt made then the publisher wont have to pay out for the bundles contents and the gamell still have the promotion from this story, so Deep Silver cant lose no matter what happens.
