Pleasure is pain with Saints Row’s favorite weapon of crass destruction
THQ and Volition, Inc. are proud to announce today that 2 million people have been bludgeoned to death by Volition’s deadly IED (Inspirational Erotic Device), the purple Penetrator that has come to symbolize the strap-it-on attitude of Saints Row: The Third.
In total, 5.8 billion citizens of Steelport have met their demise at the hands of gamers around the globe while playing Saints Row: The Third. That’s 259 times the population of Australia, roughly 85 percent of the population of the world, and it’s just the beginning.
Amidst the mayhem, players have spent a cumulative total of two years in their birthday suits streaking the streets of Steelport. In Whored Mode, 44 million pimps, gimps and prostitutes have been dispatched – two for every man woman and child in Australia. Finally, 650 hot dog mascots have been overcooked to death by players using a flamethrower. Nom nom nom.
