Santa Claus bangin' on Saints Row

New downloadable Ho Ho Ho Pack for THQ's gang-war shooter available on Xbox Live Marketplace for free, includes Santa's getup.

Hos on Saints Row are nothing new, but the new Ho Ho Ho Pack released by THQ today on Xbox Live Marketplace is an entirely different subject matter. The download includes new clothes for in-game thugs that would normally be worn by another famous person known for breaking and entering--Santa Claus. Gamers can get into the spirit with a new Santa Claus ensemble that includes the famous hat, boots, coat, and hair of St. Nick. In the spirit of the holidays, the Ho Ho Ho Pack is free to download.

I am hoping that good press and fan reaction will encourage more and more companies to give out free goodies to gamers. I don't mind paying a little for new maps and other extensive content, but simple pics, new skins, ect. really get gamers excited, and small stuff like this just should be free. Of coarse, as long as people still pay for downloadables, they will charge. !!!Fans everywhere!!! Stop paying for smaller downloads! Its the only way to make the companies change.

Bad Idea. I dn't think a Gang realted game should have make it where you can dress up as Santa and blast people. Bad THQ bad!!

I hear EA are planning something similar, except they think people will pay £9.99 for it. Wait, they already do! The Sims Stuff packs!

It` free? Wow, thank you THQ! At least you`re not money-hungry like some other companies. Hehehe, I can already see Santa in Saints Row robbing stores and giving gun-fired bullets as presents to rival gangs.
