Saints Row IV Collector's Edition Comes with Dub Step Gun

Wub wub wub.

The Saints Row IV Collector's Edition ($99.99/£89.99) comes with a 12 inch replica of the game's Dub Step gun, "capable of rendering your enemies absolutely speechless with the power of wub." The replica plays the same music as the in-game weapon and even has a laser sight.

Also included is a 8 inch Johnny Gat Memorial Statue and a pocket-size Dubstep Doomsday Button, so "fans can drop bombs on the go." It all sounds gloriously absurd.



Saints Row IV Collector's Edition

The bundle includes all in-game items from the Commander in Chief edition, which includes an Uncle Sam suit, a Screaming Eagle jet, the 'Merica weapon, and alternate box art.


Saints Row IV comes out PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on August 20th in the US, 22nd in Australia, and 23rd in the UK.

I'm thinking of renting this on my way home but I'm not sure I want to start a new game until I finish Bioshock Infinite. Also, my Saints Row 3rd character is on my PC. Life is HARD.

This game is wacky. If you thought SRIII was wacky, you know nothing Jon Snow. The number of pop culture references are rediculous. Hell, they are even littered throughout the character creation screen. It's fun, but feels more like Infamous than Saints Row.

I finally watched a video review on IGN of this yesterday and it did look way over the top even for Saints Row. The main dig the reviewer had with the game is that you were way too powerful, but I seem to recall at least with SR3 as you progressed some of the upgrades made you too powerful. Hell if you maxed out some of the upgrades you literally became invincible. By the end of the game you could just walk off the balcony of that penthouse suite safehouse you had without deploying the parachute.

Once you get super jump you don't even need to worry about heights. That's part of the issue, cars are almost useless.

I couldn't decide if that was an Ant reference or not.
If it's not, it's the most random connection ever (like Bonnie McFarlane on Red Dead). I lean towards that it's an O&A fan reference.

BTW, if you are a fan of Crackdown, I bet you will enjoy this as well. Lots of elements from that game.

Ill probably buy this one later. They released it too close to GTA V for my taste and the price will drop by then.
