So you get the game, 4 tablet cases, and a leather jacket all for $1300.

The jacket must be marked up extremely high

Crapcom never learns it, I applaud everyone pirating their games.
Snookies12  +   1276d ago
That made me lol so hard... I don't like pirating, but I gotta agree, something needs to be done about their horrible business practice. It's like they hate their fans or something, I dunno what their deal is to be honest.
jthamind  +   1275d ago
the rights to the Resident Evil franchise isn't even worth $1,300 anymore.
badz149  +   1275d ago
U can buy 3 PS3s for that price and a couple of games too!

And people should be worried about this. Why? Because it's very likely that they will include all the extra content into this version and god knows how much they will trim down the normal version of the game to make way for DLC!

jacket comes with a hood, but you cant use it until you buy an unlock code from capcom.
pangitkqb  +   1275d ago
You'd have to be one hell of a Resident Evil fan to want to sped that kind of dough.
GraveLord  +   1275d ago
Good thing its optional huh?
bruddahmanmatt  +   1275d ago
The amazing thing is that even with the $1,300 price tag, the DLC will still cost you extra.

The problem with Capcom is that they have their heads so far up in their asses that they don't even care what they are doing to their business and their rep. In my opinion, when it comes to shoddy business practices and ignoring decade old fanbase CAPCOM is right up there with SQUARE ENIX this gen and I am not even talking about this ridiculous $1300 edition (which is optional of course).

A jacket? thats stupid...you can get a tailored jacket with good quality for less. And lets be honest... no one will notice its a RE6 jacket

lol, did anybody buy Inafune's jacket?
exsturminator01  +   1275d ago
How on earth does this have disagrees? Did anyone buy Inafune's jacket? It's a valid question!
GoldenAge  +   1275d ago

You must be new here, there will always be people that will hit disagree regardless what the post contains. At best it's someone who accidentally clicked disagree when they were trying to agree at worst it's someone who gets their kicks from seeing people react to the disagree.
kevnb  +   1275d ago
Ive seen comments that completely contradict each other get the same amount of disagrees probably from the same users lol.
Ness-Psi  +   1275d ago
people have multiple accounts and agree and disagree with people they dont like and give themselves bubbles, sad really.
zeeshan  +   1275d ago
The admin should simply remove the disagree button. One AGREE button is enough ala FACEBOOK.

Actually you from what I heard the leather jacket's zipper doesn't work, you have to pay for that function in the future..... on-jacket DLC, only from Capcom.

For that price, it better be a real leather jacket.

Real, high-quality leather jackets go for $500-800 (something like Temple of Jawnz), and even much higher (Julius).
ChrisW  +   1275d ago
In Japan, anything leather is extremely overpriced because it's considered 'fashionable'.
zeeshan  +   1275d ago
TheIneffableBob: I don't want to read between your lines but God I hope you are not trying justifying this.
DeadlyFire  +   1275d ago
The jacket is real and extracted from the game world. So Leon actually touched it. Makes it worth tons of cash.
smashman98  +   1275d ago
Pirating the game won't get you 4 tablet covers nd a leather jcket 60 dollars will get u the game tho as well as pretty much anyother game
gedapeleda  +   1275d ago
game- 60$
Jacket- you can get a good one for 100$
4tablet cases- dont know what it is.Is it for Ipad?
Whell the overall is max 400$
violents  +   1275d ago
I agree except a "good" leather jacket is probly along the lines of 200-300 and a designer leather is prob what they are charging and i would guess is 700-1000(way overpriced by my standards but if you got the money to blow please send it to me instead)

Oh and at those numbers would still mean your paying 300 bucks for some crappy tablet covers(not brand specific so who knows if they fit what you have, if you have one) and a game, what crapcomtastic deal.

Giru017  +   1275d ago
Search "leon kennedy jacket" on ebay and save yourself $1,200.00, since they go for around $100.
dark-hollow  +   1276d ago
1-buy the premium edition.
2-sell it on eBay later for a much higher price.

No collector console for that price you could do two collector consoles for PS3 and 360. Throw them into the deal I don't own a tablet so the covers will be useless to me. I am not a big fan of a leather jacket thats marked up high in price. Surprise they don't include DLC into the package. I agree with Dark Hallow E bay the thing after a while there are collectors who will pay for this kind of stuff.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1276d ago
Whoa so the jacket is $1200 the tablet cases are $40 and that game is $60. Sound's pricey
Afterlife  +   1276d ago
These will probably go high on Ebay considering that they will probably release a very limited amount for scalpers to snatch up.

I would have expected a premium edition to give you all the dlc and disk locked content...

kevnb  +   1275d ago
no thats an extra $200
Zha1tan  +   1276d ago
And it will probably be a shite game anyway lol
Relientk77  +   1276d ago
um what?

most expensive collectors edition ever?

Yea, um I would never buy this lol
CommonCent  +   1276d ago
You get the jacket, zippers and buttons will be buy-able later.
The_Infected  +   1276d ago
They will call it dlc lol
BraveToaster  +   1275d ago
The zippers and buttons come with the jacket, but they're locked up when you get it. You have to pay $199.99 to unlock the zipper, $149.99 to unlock to pockets.
theeg  +   1276d ago
I just pre ordered 5 of them for my 2 gardeners and their maids, i hear the poor are really into these....video game things.....

maybe this will keep them from producing sallow gardenias and unfluffy pillows!
Lord_Sloth  +   1276d ago
I want that coat but could make a recreation on my own for much cheaper.
Soldierone  +   1276d ago
And you probably still get half the content on the disc locked out until you "buy" it.....lol
ScubaSteve1  +   1276d ago
sorry capcom i dont have 1300. 1300 can go towards college
Statix  +   1276d ago
Wow, good deal if it comes with an Xbox 720 and PS4.
dorron  +   1276d ago
I think I'll wait for a GOTY edition, all DLC bundled, leather jacket, table cases at a cheaper 20€ price tag... end sarcasm.
Bathyj  +   1276d ago
I want an actual zombie for that price.
Batzi  +   1276d ago
Here's the deal, give me the "T-Virus" and you got your 1300$!
DarkBlood  +   1276d ago
damn it you want a virus that you can give power to your self, your screwed if you get turned into a zombie :P
hazelamy  +   1276d ago
if you look around online you can buy a jacket like that for less than a tenth of that price.

the price they're asking is just ridiculous.

Totoro17  +   1276d ago
If Capcom wanted to bring this state side, they're going to have to add a few more X's to that jacket size.
Honky Kong  +   1275d ago
oh, no you diint!

The zipper will be added later in form of DLC..
Dovahkiin  +   1275d ago
This has been said three times now.
KrimsonKody  +   1275d ago
Yep, three times...

But actually, what I had heard, was that it's the S.T.A.R.S logo that is DLC.

...heard that you have to print the logo, add water & iron it on yourself...

aDDicteD  +   1275d ago
that's a bit pricey. they should toss in more stuff to compensate on that price

CultOfPersonality  +   1275d ago
the most ive ever payed was £80 for GTA IV special edition, and ACIII freedom edition
Ramas  +   1275d ago
130$ might be ok price. not 1300...
banjadude  +   1275d ago
Yeah... I think that's the most I have ever spent on any special/collector/limited edition too...
I think it's safe to say, I'll never [get to] own this version of RE6.
