The lights are on
Deep down, I know that Professor Genki would approve of the Saints Row 4 Commander in Chief edition. Sure, there's no octopus-shooting gun or vacuum-equipped, man-cannon toting van, but this is for America!
As such, Deep Silver and Volition are going to deck you out with three digital goodies for pre-ordering at major retailers. You can check out the Uncle Sam Suit, 'Merica weapon, and Screaming Eagle Jet up at the top of the page. That pride of the American skies shoots missiles from its talons and has a "sonic scream" attack that can cause enemies to experience a little of their own "trickle-down economics" (if you know what we mean).
Saints Row IV will be out on August 20 for consoles and PC, just in time for Labor Day. The Commander in Chief edition is a free upgrade to the standard version of the game, which will retail for $49.99 on PC and $59.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
