That's Too Much: $1,300 Limited Edition Resident Evil 6

So Capcom has announced a $1,300 special edition of Resident Evil 6 (due out October 2nd). What does your $1,300 get you? Nothing that justifies the price. You get: the game, four Resident Evil phone cases, and a replica of protagonist Leon Kennedy's leather jacket in the size of your choosing (so choose CAREFULLY -- there's nothing worse than dropping $1,300 on a leather jacket that your roommate adopts because it fits him better). Also, I assume the phone cases don't look like the ones in the picture because those look terrible. 1. I probably don't even own the phone that they fit and 2. who the f*** wants a phone case with a giant 'SAMPLE' printed across it? "Um, GW? That's just in the picture, they're not actually going to--" Just stop. You and I both know I'm not going to understand what you're trying to tell me, so why bother?

Hit the jump for a better shot of the $1,300 jacket.

Resident Evil 6's Ridiculous $1000 Collector's Edition [kotaku]

Thanks to Sean and Paladin, who agree if they're paying $1,300 for a game they better BE in the game. And only as cool characters.

    While I know decent leather jackets can be expensive, I find it absolutely ridiculous that they want to charge roughly £800 for one and a game. That's downright extortionate if you ask me. I would expect atleast 2 decent jackets for that money. Or an actual zombie. A zombie in a jacket.

  • Daforce

    Um...isn't that Wolverine's jacket from the first X-Men movie, only with a collar and shoulder tabs?

  • Wakwazu

    The people who buy this won't be the people that can wear a jacket like that.

  • MightyMolecule

    ...for $1,300 i expect an actual t-virus sample shipped overnight...

  • Azariel_z

    pffff not even RE4 jacket...

  • Rami Abdoch

    They would need to include a full RE team set to justify that ridiculous price: something like 4 kevlar vests, 4 sawed off shotguns, 4 Desert Eagles, and 4 herb making kits.

    Seriously, who would buy this?

  • i agree

  • wrysaryu

    ok this takes the cake as worst Collectors Edition iv seen  OH MAN 4 PHONE CASES FOR YOUR ONE PHONE.... AND A HORRBLE JACKET THAT LOOKS WORST THAN SOMETHING YOU BOUGHT AT A FLEA MARKET!!!! OH AND  IM SURE THE GAME WILL SUCK TOO!!!!

  • Wow -- you could go to a cycle shop and get a much cooler leather jacket for a fraction of the cost.
