Saints Row: The Third 'Full Package' announced

THQ announced "Saints Row The Third: The Full Package" today, a set including the game and all its associated DLC.


In case you haven't noticed, it's usually pretty smart money-management to wait a year or so on new games. Take Saints Row: The Third, for example. Sure, you could have bought it new for sixty bucks at launch, but having held off on the gonzo-action game means that soon you'll be able to get the newly-announced "Full Package" instead.

THQ announced the pack today, which includes the game, the three downloadable mission packs (Genkibowl VII, Gangstas in Space, and The Trouble with Clones), along with 30 bonus DLC items from various packs. That should give you access to every vehicle, outfit, and weapon, as if the game itself didn't have enough to start with. The "Full Package" will hit on November 6, for $49.99.

It seems like a nice and economical set, but most of the time these things are called the "Game of the Year Edition" or the "Ultimate Edition" or some-such. It seems odd to break from tradition and call this one the "Full Package," since -- oh, right. I get it now.

      I can now finally pickup the game and see what all the fuss is about. Promises of game with tons of DLC=wait for the GOTY edition and pick it up cheap. Plenty of other games out there to play while I wait.

      I didn't wait a year, pre-ordered for $32, and then when I was finished with the game, picked up the season pass DLC for $7 on sale.

      So saved money and still played it early.

      Well during the Steam summer sale there was a "Saints Row: The Third Franchise Pack" on sale which included the game + ALL DLC for $12.50!!! You can't actually buy that pack anymore though.

      Plus, the term "GOTY Edition" needs to die. I'm glad they didn't use it cause it makes absolutely no sense.

        A season pass is only 1 season. You need an all four season gold game of the year greatest hits pass if you truly want everything. It says it right in the steam page so you suck and are stupid and I hate you.
