More On: Saints Row The Third
THQ, the developer of the popular hit series Saints Row, announced the winner of the "Rim Jobs" customization contest.  Enrique Trinidad wins a trip to Los Angeles to have his car completely changed in front of his very eyes to a mobile Saints Row vehicle.  I always enjoyed contests such as this.  We don't see them enough in the industry.  It gives a chance for developers to truly give back to its fans instead of just giving a good game.  Other developers and producers really need to take note of this, considering the cost of completely modifying a car in this day in age.
THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) a leading video game developer and publisher, announced today the winner of the Win A Rim Job promotion, an enter-to-win sweepstakes that granted a free Saints Row®car customization based on the highly anticipated Saints Row®: The Third™Rim Jobs feature mode.
Enrique Trinidad of Henderson, Nevada was the lucky randomly drawn winner. Trinidad will be flown to Los Angeles, California to witness the transformation of his 1998 Honda Civic EX into a unique one-of-a-kind Saints Row custom, during the Electronic Entertainment Expo. The car, remodeled by California leading custom car company, ZD Motorsports, will be overhauled with a custom Saints Row®: The Third™ paint job, a tricked out trunk with a flat screen and Xbox 360 console, customization of the car’s body and replacement of its interior, along with new rims and much more.

THQ will also play host to a Saints Row-themed car wash along with free parking throughout the course of the E3 conference. The Saints Row-themed free parking lot is located across from the Staples Center on Figueroa St., and will be open one and half hours prior to the show opening June 7-9. With more than 500 available spaces, the Saint Row parking lot will also display customized cars and will feature VIP valet parking and car washes to the first 50 cars that arrive, with a viewing area for spectators to check out the car customization process from start to finish.
Saints Row: The ThirdRim Jobs feature mode allows complete car customization to players by providing thousands of customs wheels, body work, performance and paint options. Whether it’s implementing extra horsepower for a race or applying massive body modifications to avoid the police, players will drive away satisfied with their customized car due to the endless possibilities.

Developed by Volition, Inc.®, Saints Row The Third is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC November 15, 2011. For more information on Saints Row: The Third visit www.saintsrow.com.
