If you think spending $60 to kill zombies is steep, "special edition" versions of popular video games can be even pricier, luring in devotees with fancier packaging, collectible booklets and fun plastic tchotchkes.
But video game publisher Deep Silver tops all with the most garish endeavor in video game history: a special version of its upcoming video game "Saint's Row IV" known as the "Super Dangerous Wad Wad" edition. The price? $1 million.
In case you're worried about not getting enough bang for your buck on the "Wad Wad" edition (also known as "the million dollar pack"), this exceedingly high-end version of "Saints Row IV" comes with a few unique perks such as a week-long stay at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, D.C., a plastic surgery procedure of the customer's choice, and a trip into space.
