PS3-exclusive content not in Saints Row: The Third

At E3, THQ promised an exclusive gameplay mode (featuring the dildo bat) in Saints Row: The Third for PS3 users. It seems, however, that such a promise was not kept, with no extra PS3 features appearing whatsoever. 

THQ has refused to comment as reports crop up detailing the complete lack of difference between the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. While this might be great news for 360 owners, anybody who bought the PS3 version on the grounds that they'd be getting more gameplay can feel quite rightly duped. 

This is the second time a publisher has tried to discreetly renege on a PS3-exclusive promise this year. In October, it was discovered that EA had not bundled Battlefield 1943 in with Battlefield 3, and attempted to make up for it by allowing PS3 users to purchase upcoming DLC a week earlier than on other platforms. 

I am certain there are supposed to be laws against this kind of false advertising. Surely you can't just promise something to paying customers, then silently refuse to give it to them once the transaction is made, right?

Saints Row: The Third exclusive PlayStation 3 content amounts to ... nothing, actually [Joystiq]
