Great news! The collector’s edition Resident Evil 6 set is available for preorder! With it you get a Zombies book, army patches, a hoody, an art book and a lovely display box for it all.
How much will it cost for this vast array of gifts? A measly £129.99 and it is yours! Yes it is a bit steep, ok very steep, but you do get some cool memorabilia, that if you have a Resident Evil collection already, would be a nice addition.
But justifying this is a difficult feat. The game promises to be a spectacular treat, that’s for sure. But how much am I going to wear a Tall Oaks jumper?
So it doesn’t make sense that they have priced it out of most people’s budget when there is nothing really worthy in the package.
For now I will stick to the preorder of the normal version, and I am sure that I won’t regret this decision. As avid of a fan as I am, Capcom have dropped the ball a little bit here.
Hopefully they will see the error of their ways and will drop it down to a more reasonable price, in which case I wouldn’t have a problem with investing. Only time will tell.
