Default Premium Edition

For the most part I don’t think collector’s editions or deluxe versions of games are worth the higher price tags they command. At best you get an art book or a soundtrack CD, and unless the game is something special in either of those areas, the extras just end up taking shelf space.

With Resident Evil 6, there’s a much more useful item in the Premium Edition of the game. The problem is, most people either won’t be able to afford it, or be willing to pay to get it.

Resident Evil 6 Premium Edition is expensive. Owning it will cost you 105,000 yen, which is $1,300 dollars. Why would you consider paying that much for Capcom‘s latest Resident Evil game? Because it actually includes a leather jacket just like the one worn by Leon in the game.



As well as the game and jacket, Capcom has been kind enough to throw in four tablet cases, which are used to store herb items in the game. These aren’t cases to put a tablet in for protection in case you were wondering.

Even if you are contemplating hitting your savings or credit card to acquire the Premium Edition, it seems highly unlikely Capcom will offer it in the West. To acquire it in Japan you have to buy it through Capcom’s own online store called e-Capcom. It will be very limited in quantity, and the jacket is sure to disappear quickly in the size you want (it’s available in S, M, L, and XL).

Resident Evil 6, sporting a brand new control system and zombies using weapons, is scheduled for release on October 2 in standard edition form for the much more reasonable price of $60

That's a cool jacket. But it's to expensive for my case. Also I do have a leatherjacket so the need isn't there. :P

There is no way I would spend that much money on a special edition for a game, even this one...

$1200 is too much. Even if it does come with the leather jacket, I wouldn't spend more than $400-500 on it. It would really suck if Resident Evil 6 was the worst game in the series, and you bought this edition.

Ahhh!!!! I'll buy it at a high price!

I remember when RE3 came out for the PS1. They had wool jackets with the game logo, and I believe it came in a special edition package for, like, 30 extra bucks. However, I was working at a Software, Etc. at the time, and I got one for free. Still have it. Itchy as hell, but I still have it.

Still, $1300 extra bucks? Maybe I need to get a job at Gamestop... they still give free stuff to employees, yes?

Now this is pretty expensive for a collectors edition even if it's a nice jacket and I'm certainly not defending Capcom, but what's wrong with free DLC? If it doesn't have trophies that's them trying to screw you?

In a sense yes, it's about 15-30 minutes

I'm definitely not getting this, even though the leather jacket is the most alluring thing about it. Capcom's probably stepped the price up so high because the production of the game must be ridiculously high as I "heard" that the crew of the game is around 600 people. If they were to lower the price to a moderately higher range (~ $200) for the edition, they'd probably sell more than they would this game. Still, it seems like they need the money bad, and it's not going to go well for them if they keep the price this high.
