Preorder Saints Row IV to play as Bush, Obama

Deep Silver reveals new preorder promotion for GameStop, EB Games that unlocks Presidential Pack, allowing gamers to play as Bush, Obama, and Lincoln.

by

Those who preorder Saints Row IV at GameStop or EB Games will receive the Presidential Pack, allowing gamers to play as former presidents Abraham Lincoln and George W. Bush, as well as current commander in chief Barack Obama.

The offer is only valid for gamers who preorder Saints Row IV and pick up their copy by August 22. Supplies are reportedly "limited."

In Saints Row IV, gamers play as a user-created president of the United States. The game launches August 20 in North America and August 23 internationally.

All preorders for the game are automatically upgraded to the Commander in Chief Edition, which features an Uncle Sam suit, the Screaming Eagle jet, and the 'Merica weapon.

Mercs2 did it first.

What's the 'Merica weapon? A .50 cal MG with rockets and grenades?

I've always used the british voice for my character in saints row, so having a brit as an american president is going to make this game very unrealistic...hahaha!

Guys be careful with this pre-order! Remember that the NSA is spying on everyone, and if you say stuff like "I'll kill the world with (Insert President Name Here)", you might get a visit from the anti-terror group like what happened to some kid a few weeks ago!

If i were designing this, Obama would be in charge of one gang, and bush another, and both leaders would just manipulate their supporters to hate the other gang, then fuck everybody over who isn't powerful enough to stop them. Actually games aren't supposed to be too realistic, so maybe that's a bad idea.

46.6 million Americans on food banks and Obama is too busy giving a speech in Northern Ireland about peace. Great one Obama, I bet that is what the American public voted you in for, what a tool.

Obama and Bush are greedy criminals, so it fits.

Would have been nice if this was included in the Steam pre-order.  What's even better is that GameStop wasn't even taking pre-orders on Saints Row IV before I went through Steam to buy it.  Oh well.

@19James89  If Obama nor the right winged oposition can help your country, prepare for the shitstorm, just like in Spain with president Rajoy.

@goku2000  Steam is better anyway.  No fumbling with discs, no waiting til release to have it.  Mine is already preloaded.

@Garm31 Having the ability to enjoy intentionally dumb entertainment by virtue of it being dumb is, i would argue, more mature than only enjoying 'gritty' entertainment. 

Its like when kids grow up and suddenly resent comics, cartoons and other 'childish' entertainment. Then they get a bit older and begin to enjoy it again because they have nothing to 'prove' anymore.

@Garm31 Maybe because some people are capable of liking two different games. Instead of coming on saints row articles to say gta will be better why don't you do something productive with your life?

@Garm31Why would you care what games I buy and don't buy? Also, there is guaranteed to be "prepubescent nonsense" in GTA 5

@OOLuigiOo @19James89 Ha you all always focus on the opposing party every time someone mentions one or the other. Get this: None of them care for anyone except the top percent because that's who they work for. They don't work for us and never will unless the people kick the establishment out. That Republican/Democrat mess went out the window long ago. These are just actors and frontmen. 

The next president will be the same because they have you under control and if you wanted to fight back, they have already been setting up for that also while everyone has been watching reality shows. No one really pays attention. The NSA isn't collecting data for terrorists, they are collecting data to cover the elite's a** while the violate the constitution even more. Don't be fooled by politics.

@evil_snuggles Who said anything about republicans?  Sounded like he painted obama as a failure, and seeing his approval rating lately, he's not alone :P

@DrKill09 @goku2000 Yeah, those damn discs are sooooo cumbersome, I'm constantly fumbling around with them with my stupid fat sausage-like fingers.  Life isn't fair...

@smr2313 @Garm31 and your arguement for "prepubescent nonsense" in gta V is retarded aswell. Sure there may be some of it but the entire game is not based on it like saints row 4 is.

ABakedAlien

@smr2313 @Garm31 He doesn't care what games you buy. He's asking a rhetorical question as in why would anyone honestly buy this piece of shit game? Regardless of its immature content, its an overpriced DLC for Saints Row 3 for $60. Nothing new or innovative. If you have watched any of the GTA V trailers then you will see how innovative its going to be with its GTA ONLINE. Its like choosing between a minivan (SR4) or a Ferrari (GTA V) for the same price. Sure you can get the minivan if you want, but most people would be stupid to not pick the much better one, the ferrari (gta v)

Bluefuxnews you are a fool the problem Obama has is the republiCONS. They have hijacked this country democracy. They are Corporate pawns that want to destroy the government. They are Sabotaging the government's to weak it and working for corporate interests. This is a common tactic that big business use and other countries. The republiCON care nothing for the American people just the rich super with rich and large corporations

@bluefox755  Maybe its because I commented on a 3 day old article thats no longer on the front page, dumbass. That's why i got no likes. As the poster (garm31) basically said the same thing as me and got 11....... obviously people agree.

@ABakedAlien What if people enjoy it?  What if they don't like GTAV?  Who cares, just because you think something's better doesn't mean you have to come here and troll about it. Notice how many likes they got?  And how you got zero?  That should be a clue...you come off as a troll. :)  Maybe you intended that, if so, disregard this.

@Garm31 @Anthonyccc Well yeah its destroying Africa especially since the savages cant stop raping each other, but on a scale, cancer kills all around the world at alarming levels. Even my own dad lost his life to it, and my grandma.
