The lights are on
Deep Silver and Volition are never satisfied. Sure, everyone who pre-orders Saints Row IV gets the Commander in Chief bonuses. For the collectors, there's already the Super Dangerous Wub Wub edition with a real life (non-lethal) dubstep gun and other goodies. Now, alien leader Emperor Zinyak is taking matters into his own hands by declaring that Saints Row IV is the Game of the Generation.
Well, at least that's what this new super premium version of the game is called. In addition to the dubstep gun, the Game of the Generation edition comes with a dubstep doomsday button, a memorial Johnny Gat statue (he'll love that now that he's back from the dead), a light-up display case with an individually numbered plaque (only 5,000 of these are being made), and a protective pouch. (The light-up case and protective pouch are the upgrades from the Super Dangerous Wub Wub edition. The dubstep doomsday button and statue are included with both collector's editions.)

The collection will retail for $129.99, but you'd better move quickly. These are very limited. We also finally have some new information about benevolent alien invader ruler, Emperor Zinyak. His people have provided the following bio:
About Emperor ZinyakHis Majesty Emperor Zinyak is the ultimate ruler of the Zin Empire, a civilization of extraterrestrial beings bent upon world domination. After arriving at Earth on a routine conquest mission, Zinyak took it upon himself to select the best and brightest of the human race and graciously bring them under the watchful care of the Zin, initiating the humans to their superior ways via simulations of their pitiful world. In his free time, Emperor Zinyak enjoys sipping brandy next to a warm fire, reading classic works of fiction by Jane Austen and catching up on the delightful BBC series, Downtown Abbey.
There's also a new Hail to the Chief video, which involves mascots and bowling and a dump truck.
Saints Row IV will be out on August 20, 2013, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

That looks like a worth while purchase
Zinyak's PR should better acquaint themselves with Earth's pop culture for they committed a common error - it's 'Downton Abbey," not "Downtown Abbey." Some evolved civilization indeed.
I've never played any Saints Row game, but they look friggin' ridiculous.
Lies. Downton Abbey is a PBS series.
Why does this not include a pink furry rabbit suit?
Imagine how fun it will be running through a public space in a pink rabbit furry suit shooting your toy dubstep gun and kicking random people in the crotch; until getting tazed by the cops.
You will be the toast of the county lock-up when you arrive dressed to impress.
A working dubstep gun would've been way better.
LOL good joke good joke
Such an outright wacky game.
