Penthouse Pets recruited to ensure customer satisfaction with Saints Row: The Third

Publisher THQ has announced that it has recruited a team of Penthouse Pets to form a special quality assurance team for Saints Row: The Third. According to THQ, occasionally naked ladies Heather Vandeven, Justine Joli, Heidi Baron, Shay Laren, Ryan Keely, and Nikki Benz will be brought on to “ensure
a satisfying Saints Row experience whether playing alone or with a friend.”…

“We personally handpicked this QA team and the Penthouse brand based on a number of key factors: their passion for Saints Row; their sense of style and Saints Row attitude; and above all, their desire to give every player a unique, over-the-top, unforgettable experience,” said lead producer Greg Donovan in an official statement. “In the end, their selfless efforts are going to put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces.”

The Penthouse Pets’ “selfless efforts” will include working with Saints Row: The Third’s development team to design a special DLC, which THQ says will be “a rare homage to the dedicated developers charged with quality assurance.” But before that, the new quality assurance team will be lending support to Saints Row: The Third by gracing the game’s Comic-Con booth (#5145) with their presence.

News of THQ and Volition's buxom QA team of Penthouse Pets follows an announcement that Hulk Hogan and former porn star Sasha Grey will be joining the cast of voice actors in Saints Row: The Third.

    Enough with the pornstars already. Now, excuse me while I play BMX XXX.

    Looks like they read my mind, Heather Vandeven is my personal favorite model of the naked variety. Congratulations THQ looks like you just sold another copy. (clap, clap, clap).

    As much as I love Saints Row, I wish they'd stop trying to use this shit to sell. The Tera Patrick DLC in SR2 was merely okay, after all...

    What are they gonna do, blow the developers?

    this looks like Uwe Boll's adaptation of Postal... only GOOD.

    I don't think I quite understand what this all means...
  • Crypto140 - July 21, 2011 8:46 p.m.

    We all know THQ hired the Penthouse Pets for themselves.

    No one I'd care about. So I'll pass on this

    I'm fine with this, so long as they abstain from making all the gay jokes.

    I don't know about the others, but at least Ryan Keely is a gamer. Still, could be fun if it's free dlc. And fun for the Comic con goers i would assume.

    This game just keeps getting better and better!
  • Modroneman - July 21, 2011 7:11 p.m.

    Naked chicks are never a joke! Boobies!
  • therawski - July 21, 2011 7 p.m.

    I'm assuming this is a joke.
