The use of porn actresses in the marketing of Saints Row was not "appreciated" by developer Volition, associate producer Kate Nelson told Edge, pointing to a particular occasion when marketing executives at publisher THQ suggested porn star Tera Patrick had been a "special producer" for the project.
