Saints Row The Third missing promised PlayStation 3-exclusive content

A lot of promises were made at this past E3, with several publishers throwing their support behind Sony with exclusive content for multi-platform games. But just as was the case with EA's Battlefield 3, which was missing the copy of Battlefield 1943 the publisher said would be included in PlayStation 3 copies of the game, THQ's Saints Row: The Third is, too, lacking something brought up at E3: the ability to wield the game's "signature weapon" with the PlayStation Move.

That signature weapon is, of course, the dildo bat, which has been featured in just about every trailer for the game since it was announced. It's sort of Saints Row: The Third's Master Sword, and the prospect of being able to swing around the floppy, purple sex toy with the PlayStation Move is definitely an enticing offer, and might have been enough to sway some gamers towards picking up the PlayStation 3 version of the game. But, for some reason, that feature was cut. Even stranger than it being cut is the fact that THQ hasn't actually commented on it since the initial announcement – PlayStation 3 owners just got their copy and found that the promised content wasn't included. 

Neither company has commented on the omission, meaning that they either forgot about it, don't want to admit that it was cut, or are waiting to reveal the Move functionality as downloadable content (which sounds like the most likely option).

Still, even without the ability to slap around baddies with a motion-controlled dildo, Saints Row: The Third is still pretty damn awesome, as you can read in our review. That's not to say that we wouldn't want that feature added to the game or anything – we totally would – it's just that it didn't stop Saints Row from being one of the best games of the year.

    Oh no, now how will I get my homo-eroticness on? To be honest I wasn't even going to anywhere near that thing anyway.

    You want to know why I'd be a good member of Saint's Row? YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY? I'm ALREADY a god DAMN member of the Saints. You inducted me into this shit last WEEK. I LIVE this shit. I'm a fucking Saint, I'm on the fucking Row, and I said shit, goddamn, fuck, get with the program. The hell you think you's doin', trying to play me? "Why would you be a good member of the Saints?" Stupid move. That's it, I had enuffa dis. I'm grabbing my 8+1, you go get your nines, we fucking roll it out TOMORROW. You better bring your best soldiers, because it's going to be fucking Precinct 13 up in this bitch. (PS3)

    Those who want their dildo bat PSmove function can make up for it by creating their own real life dildo bat and whacking their friends with it. ..I'm not the only one right?...right?..

    Just don't trust Sony, they are not making good on any promises. The ship is sinking for them. It's a horrible site. They really screwed everything up for this console gen.

    Because this is Sony's fault. Troll.

    Yes because Sony makes Saint's Row and has full control over what they put in the game. /sarcasmincaseitwasn'tobvious
