With the season pass in games becoming a norm in the video game industry, don’t be surprised if THQ’s Saints Row: The Third will be getting one as well next week.
I'm glad to see the season passes are becoming popular. They're definitely a good deal for gamer's and a nice little boost overall.
Either way you still pay for the DLC so I honestly don't see a difference. It's just a marketing trick to make it seem like you are getting a good deal while really you are still paying a substantial price for little benefit. Only when you consider the groundwork of the game and then the little work required to add the DLC does the price really start to look so expensive
Popular with who? Popular with devs or popular with gamers.. are you for real? there is nothing good about season passes and it's not adding anything of value. it's just a way for publishers to make more money at the expense of gamers who are just to weak to say no to it. Personally I bought both the 1st and 2nd saints row new when they launched. I wanted to get saints row 3rd but was going to wait till xmas because of all the other games out. Then R* threw up the gta5 trailer and then I heard about the online pass and that was the final nail in the coffin. I am not happy with any sort of online pass, season pass or any other crap and if I can avoid games trying to promote such stuff I will.
Isn't this really just...paying in advance for pretty much the same thing?
why is it when im gonna play this game i want to walk down the street and play the song another one bites the dust. LOL
Got the season pass & the Genki pack with my order from tHQ store not too long ago...don't know if that deal is still active or not but it comes free with your copy.
http://store.thq.com/store?... Looks like that deal is still active...hurry up if you want it! This is the entire package- SR3 + Free Shipping + Genki + FREE SEASON PASS....so... You can thank me later =)
I'll just wait for GOTY edition or substantial price drop of retail, sorry but don't feel like going $80 upfront on a game that only offers co-op besides single player
If game comes w/ pass cool, if not still cool cause thier's DLC coming soon .
"Season Pass my Ass! I'm not paying for crap that should already be in the game!" >:( I'm pretty sure Angry Video Game Nerd would say that.
I would be cool with a season pass if it was included with a new copy of the game which it should be
