Did Porn Marketing Cast a Bad Light on Saints Row IV?

Video game developer Volition isn’t happy with some of the marketing for their latest project … specifically the bits featuring porn star Tera Patrick. 

Crave’s sister site Destructoid got the word from Volition associate producer Kate Nelson who said Saints Row IV is a parody and really has nothing to do with porn or the women who star in adult movies.

“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.”

“I can see the humor in that angle of promotion but for me that’s the line where it gets into reality.” – Kate Nelson

The one thing that confuses us is how she confused porn with reality.

Whatever you think of the marketing, Saints Row IV drops August 20 in North America.
