As if the upcoming Saints Row IV wasn’t ridiculous enough, it was announced on Thursday that one lucky fan, for the cost of $1,000,000, can pre-order the ‘Super Dangerous Wad Wad’ Edition of the game. You read that right: one million dollars.
The so-called ‘Million Dollar Pack’ is now available for pre-order exclusively at UK’s GAME. Possibly the most absurd marketing stunt in the games industry to date, publisher Deep Silver has put together a pretty badass Presidential package.
So what exactly does $1,000,000 buy you?
the Commander-in-Chief edition of Saints Row IV, which includes an in-game Uncle Sam costume, the ‘Merica weapon, and the Screaming Eagle plane
a life-size replica of the now-legendary Dubstep Gun
first-class, round-trip flights to and from Washington, D.C. and Dubai
7 nights for two at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, D.C.
7 nights stay in the luxurious Top Royal Suite at the Burj-al-arab in Dubai
a shopping spree with a personal shopper to create a timeless ‘capsule wardrobe’, fit for a President (don’t feel bad, I had to look up what a ‘capsule wardrobe’ was too)
plastic surgery of the purchaser’s choice
a brand new Toyota Prius, complete with 1 year’s worth of car insurance
a brand new Lamborghini Gallardo, with a 1 year membership in the E25 Super Car Club
a full day of ‘spy training’
a ‘hostage rescue experience’ (Who’s the hostage? Are you the one being rescued or doing the rescuing? Who knows…)
a Virgin Galactic Space Flight (you’ll be sub-orbital, but hey, man, it’s still space)
All of these things most likely total more than $1,000,000, so if you’re rich as heck, this is actually a bargain. That said, if I had a million dollars, I’d probably be more sensible: pay back my student loans, go to graduate school, or be like Barenaked Ladies and buy a house.
