Over on XBL Marketplace, there are some snazzy new Avatar items for Saint’s Row 2, including the lovely pimp hat and suit above.
There’s also a cane for the outfit that would not show up on the leopard print background that we felt the duds sorely needed, and deserved.

The second week of Direct 2 Drive’s birthday sale has brought some proper bargains: BioShock and Saints Row 2 are both on offer for $5 or £5 each.
The UK version’s here. Get on it. There’s plenty of other stuff there besides. We’re buying Saints Row 2 right now. Despite the fact we already own it. That’s how cheap it is.

THQ’s released a video of Gary Busey behaving very oddly in an effort to promote free Saint’s Row 2 DLC, the “UnKut Pack”.
See it on Shacknews. It’s pretty worrying.

THQ said last night that Saints Row 2′s upcoming DLC, Ultor Exposed, has slipped by a week and will now launch on April 23.
Tera Patrick’s in it, or at least a really terrible digital representation of her is, so that means you have to part with 800 MS Points to play it.
There’s other stuff in it, too, like cars, haircuts and clothes. For the win.

According to this Eurogamer piece, Saint’s Row 2′s going to get three separate packs of DLC.
The first, Ultor Exposed, is out on April 16 for PS3 and 360.
“Ultor Exposed is the first of three DLC packages that will be made available for Saints Row 2,” said producer James Torbit.
“I’ll get my brake lines cut if I reveal any details [on the other two], but rest assured that we’re hard at work building on the Saints Row 2 experience.”
More details through there.

50 Cent has apparently just said he wants to make a Saints Row movie.
“With my relationship with THQ, they’ll actually see me develop Saint’s Row into an actual screeplay and into a film project,” he told US journalists.
“I’m optioning the rights for that right now, so they’ll see that before they see me do it from my own perspective for my game.”
Sounds great. More on Kotaku.

For every cloud, a silver lining. Saints Row 2 has sold 2.6 million units since the game’s October release, Edge reports, bringing a touch of warmth to some otherwise awful THQ financial results yesterday.
Other glimmers from THQ’s 2008 included WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009, which has shipped over 4 million units, Big Beach Sports at 1.2 million, and de Blob at 700,000.
According to CEO Brian Farrell: “Established franchises like Saints Row and WWE SmackDown vs. Raw, as well as new franchises such as de Blob and Big Beach Sports for the Nintendo Wii, give us confidence in our strategy going forward.”
Nice, but cold comfort considering financial losses will result in 600 employees being sacked.
For every silver lining, a cloud.
