The lights are on
Deep Silver is calling its new Saints Row 4 special edition the Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition, but its only dangerous to one gamer's wallet.
Saints Row 4's Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition puts the special in special edition. It seems like this thing could be legit, but maybe Deep Silver isn't expecting anyone to actually buy this thing. Regardless, here's what you'll get if you buy this limited edition:
Our TakeGame Informer editor Joe Juba recently did an opinion on why special editions are dumb (I happen to agree). He probably didn't know about this stunt, but Wad Wad Edition almost seems like a social commentary on the state of special editions; though I doubt Deep Silver was thinking about that when it put this package together. In fact, this smells more like a publicity stunt rather than a real special edition – publicity it just got. You win this round Deep Silver!

Can't wait to get The Dangerous Wad Wad edition for my Xbox! Would get it for PC but I don't have the money for those expensive PCs. :(
If you have millions of dollars, why waste it on this to get all of that? YOU HAVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS!
Crazy special edition for a crazy game.
I hope this is real and some idiot actually buys it, I want it to be documented.
WTF!!!! This can not be real.
Welp, I guess i better start saving if I hope to afford this by the time the game releases. I think i have some hundred dollar bills in-between my couch cushions...
I'd love to watch an unboxing video of this on youtube.
If i was a billionaire I still wouldnt buy it.......and yes im serious
"Maybe Deep Silver isn't expecting anyone to actually buy this thing." Yeah I'm sure that's what Pepsi thought went they offered that Harrier Fighter years ago and then someone actually managed to get enough points (and cash) together to "purchase" said jet (not that Pepsi actually coughed it up). I could totally see someone buying this super edition, because the internet is just full of people like that.
I think Deep Silver just took it a teeny-tiny bit too far this time. XD
Sigh...If this is a joke than it's a terrible joke.
Okay, c'mon guys. Galactic Space Flight? How is that not the most awesome thing ever? But seriously, these special editions are getting out of hand. First a special edition with a brand new extremely expensive sport car and now this?
For a million bucks? I would do it. It seems like you get a lot of stuff for that price.
Hahaha! That's a great joke... wait.....
Someone is definitely going to buy that.
Nah this really is just making fun of the state of games right now. Spoilers for the first mission of the game coming up... They're minor.
You come up to a point where a guy is standing BEHIND a box peeing in the dumbest spot ever. You come up to him and R3 to KNIFE comes up with a totally ridiculous animation. Later on you kick a door in and it goes all slow motion.
It's totally making fun of COD because an explosion rocks The Boss backwards and a team mate gets in his face and pulls him back up.
