Deep Silver not going for decapitated torso for Saints Row, asks for help
Deep Silver, the new owner of the Saints Row franchise, are looking for community help in creating the fourth games collectors edition.
Last time Deep Silver created a collectors edition, they made pretty much everyone in the world angry, when it turned out Dead Island: Riptide would ship with a decapitated female torso. You can listen to our thoughts on this in the fifth PCGMedia podcast.
Given Saints Row‘s potential to offend, but the expectation for a contextually relevant trinket, reflecting the games content, Deep Silver said they ”want to make a Collector’s Edition for Saints Row 4. One that is, you know, worth buying as a collector’s item.”#
“Now, we have been toying with a lot of ideas, but we want you, the Saints Row community, to vote on what YOU want in a Collector’s Edition. So here’s your chance to let us know!”
Check out their survey for all the options, such as:
- A Dubstep Doomsday Button
- Johnny Gat Memorial Statue (sans breasts)
- Tie and Tie Bar, Money Clip
- Ridiculously amazing glass display case with lights?

There’s no date set for when the item will be announced, but we expect it’ll be minimally offensive – more likely focusing on one of the games characters or notable objects.
