Volition weren't fans of THQ's porn star marketing push

There will be over 100 tracks spanning seven radio stations too

Volition's associate producer Kate Nelson spoke with Edge Online about all things Saints Row, and specifically brought up how the team weren't fans of THQ's marketing push using porn stars.

“I did not always love how much THQ put an emphasis on porn stars,” Kate told Edge. “In Saints Row 2 and Saints Row 3 there was an emphasis on the penthouse girls, and earlier Tera Patrick. I think it’s important in marketing games to make sure that the essence of the game is what’s being marketed, and I think the porn star angle didn’t really fit in with what Saints Row is at heart, which is a parody. We like to poke fun.”

It was especially THQ's use of porn star Tera Patrick that bothered the team, specifically how she was credited as a "special producer."

“Saying that someone who had no industry experience was in a role that is sexualised as a producer of our project, or saying the penthouse girls are our QA staff – I just…I can see the humour in that angle of promotion but for me that’s the line where it gets into reality."

Also for those of you that care about the soundtrack, we can expect 80 minutes of original music on top of seven radio stations sporting over 100 tracks in Saints Row IV
