The zany, action-filled world of Saints Row: The Third doesn't open its doors until November 15, but publisher THQ is priming the release with news today of a Platinum Edition and preorder pack for the game.
The Saints Row: The Third Platinum Edition (pictured below) will include a copy of the game, the game's soundtrack, a Saints Row-themed headset, and all items included in the Professor Genki Hyper-Ordinary pack. THQ did not announce a price for the Platinum Pack, but specialty retailer GameStop suggests it will cost $100.
The Professor Genki Hyper-Ordinary pack--free to those who preorder the game at unannounced retailers--includes an array of in-game items. These include Professor Genki's Super Ballistic Man-a-pult, Professor Genki's "Octopuss" Cannon, and Professor Genki's Leisure Stunt Suit.
Additionally, THQ noted that the first 3,000 gamers to purchase Saints Row: The Third through its online store will score the Saints Row Season Pass, which includes three downloadable mission packs. THQ estimates the value of the Season Pass at $20, and it did not note if it will become publicly available at any time.
