Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package In November

THQ and Volition announce Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, coming this November, offering a complete bundle of Saints Row: The Third and all the post-release content for the open-world action sequel, down to the last weaponized sex toy. Here's word:

THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) and Volition, Inc. today announced Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package will be available for purchase in North America on November 6, 2012, and internationally on November 9, 2012 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation Network and Windows PC for the suggested retail price of $49.99.

“With all the amazing and over-the-top DLC Volition created, the Full Package now stands as the definitive edition of Saints Row: The Third. For anyone that has yet to play this one-of-a-kind game, it’s time to strap it on.” The premiere edition of Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package includes the award-winning, critically-acclaimed, almost universally lauded Saints Row: The Third; the three downloadable mission packs Genkibowl VII, Gangstas In Space, and The Trouble With Clones; and more than 30 bonus DLC items from such hits as the Shark Attack pack, Witches & Wieners pack, Special Operations pack, and the Genki Girl Vehicle pack. With every weapon, every vehicle, and every outfit ever created for Saints Row: The Third, players will go over the top, off the reservation, and to places where no decent game should go.

“The fans have asked for it, and with the Full Package, we are happy to deliver,” said Kevin Kraff, Vice President, Global Brand Management for THQ. “With all the amazing and over-the-top DLC Volition created, the Full Package now stands as the definitive edition of Saints Row: The Third. For anyone that has yet to play this one-of-a-kind game, it’s time to strap it on.”

Edit: To be fair there is something you could do to this that might make be buy it sooner and closer to $50. I've heard that the dLC packs are these little separate mini games that use a lot of interesting stuff but you can't use that stuff in the main game.
I'm not sure exactly what you heard, but this is basically how it works.

There are two kinds of DLC for SR3:
1. Outfits/weapons/vehicles/homies. These are additional customization options for the game, and they have the same functionality as the included items in the same category. For example, DLC weapons can be used anytime regular weapons can be used (except for the missions where your weapons are predetermined).
2. Additional activities and missions. These are the three downloadable mission packs that are listed in the release blurb. By their nature, these aren't used in the main game... they're additional story missions and activities. What you may be thinking about is that some of these extra missions include new weapons, which I believe aren't available outside of those missions.

While I certainly understand being annoyed at the first type of DLC, if you're interested in it or the mission/activity DLC, there's nothing to keep you from getting it now if the price is right.
