Saints Row: The Third boasts 2 million beaten to death with giant purple sex toy

After weeks of seeing companies brag about the millions of consoles sold and copies of games shipped, we’re tired. We’ve been overloaded with stats to the point of losing interest, but sometimes a number comes along that involves a huge dildo and it’s difficult to ignore. Today we found out (among other interesting statistics) that two million digital people have been beaten to death in Saints Row: The Third with the Penetrator aka the giant purple dildo bat.

Among other stats for the title, 5.8 billion have died in combined playthroughs of the game, 44 million have been killed in Whored Mode, and most random of all, 650 people dressed as hot dogs have been burned to death. If the game can rack up numbers like those in just two weeks, it probably bodes well for the game’s success. And if you want to keep track of similar numbers, some new community features have been added to

    It's too bad this game was a watered down mess though and its subsequent sales are going to plummel soon. The "year worth of DLC" has been confirmed to be missing content shown in promotional images, the lack of options (in a fairly detailed customizer, yes) compared to some of the more intricately designed NPCs is almost insulting. The site and the much-boasted Initiation Station are buggy as all hell (I'm a registered member, I have my characters set to public, and I still can't upload or download in any way.) NO MISSION REPLAY, and once you've upgraded everything, you either start an entirely new game or there's nothing to do but mindlessly shoot. More things I'd love to bitch on about about co-op but I'd be spoiling the story. Let's just say one "popular element" can't be played on in co-op, except for the one story mission that introduces it. I had hoped co-op would have been some saving grace that at the behest of the cherished memory videos, would provide some means of impromptu user-generated content, but 9 times out of 10, any idea my partner and I had was bitterly shot down by some glitch, or lack of elementary content. Oh and Whored Mode. Fun, for all of 30 mins. You beat it, there's no reward. It's just the same 50 waves of mindless killing. No doubt some series newcomers are having a blast with this, that's cool. Their marketing was clever, brought alot of new faces, and excited the hell out of series veterans. Honestly anyone who jumped into the Saints in Steelport is missing out on alot.

    I realized before this one came out people would be disappointed with it, it was when they announced SR 4 before this one had even been released, the game will keep getting watered down and get yearly installments, like so many other games

    *ten minutes of cursing* I hate you so much right now. >:[ Oh well, maybe I'll get it for Christmas? And I know that at least someone is actually winning these things.

    Chris is lucky. He was *this* close to being one of the victims after that video.

    I'm uhh.. partial to the Nocturne myself for family friendly reasons, but power to dildo batters everywhere I guess. I CAN say I contributed to burning hotdogs though, all's appropriate in roasting dogs, right? PI IN MY RECAPTCHA. NO.
