Developers love it when you pay for the games that they’ve made. No really, apparently is has something to do with the fact that they have families to feed and stuff. What they’d love even more is if you paid for stuff that hasn’t even come out yet. That’s why this whole notion of “Season Passes” is catching on really quickly.
Gears of War 3 recently allowed you to pay a lot of money to gain access to all future DLC. It works out cheaper for you to approach DLC in this fashion than if you had to pay for it all individually. Well, that’s how they get you to agree to it first that is! Next up, it’s THQ’s turn to make you drop cold, hard cash on stuff you haven’t seen yet.
Saints Row: The Third will have a Season Pass that allows you to gain access to four pieces of DLC while giving you a saving of 15%. Three of those four pieces will be full-on mission packs, and to be fair, just the names of them are enough to seal the deal. “Genkibowl VII”, “Gansgtas in Space” and “The Trouble With Clones” are the mission packs; the fourth piece of DLC will give you access to the “Nyte Blayde” pack, which gives you two outfits, a motor bike and car all designed for hunting vampires. Man, the more I hear about this game, the more insane it sounds.
