Saints Row IV Box Is Very Chic, Very Purple

Sr4boxVolition and Deep Silver have revealed the box art for the upcoming Saints Row IV due to be released this August for the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and PC.  I don't normally comment on box art just for the sake of commenting, but I have to share how much I like this image.  The protagonist character has climbed the political ranks to become the President of the United States by the time Saints Row IV opens, so it's a stylish choice to use the image of the character's purple suit on the box.  Normally these open world action games thrive on overuse of the stereotypical blue/orange color combination, so it's a breath of fresh air to see so much purple in this image.  It adds a distinctive flair that will help the game stand out on the already packed store shelf.  There's a bit of orange fire reflected in the sunglasses (and snapshots of the action to show some of the mayhem), but on the whole the image is nicely subdued.  I like it and wish that more publishers would follow suit (no pun intended).
