Resident Evil 6 $1,000 premium edition up for order on Capcom's e-store

Bundle to include replica of Leon's leather jacket; priced at over $1,000.

Gamers who are fans of the Resident Evil series and wish for something exclusive to go with their future copy of Resident Evil 6 may want to save up. Capcom's e-store recently opened up an order page for the Resident Evil 6 Premium edition, which contains the game, a replica of Leon's leather jacket, and a set of four tablet case covers.

Fans will get to wear Leon's threads if they can pony up the cash.

The set will run gamers ¥105,000 ($1,302) and comes in four sizes: S, M, L, and XL. Players who buy the standard version from the e-store will get a tablet case which comes in four inscriptions: Chris, Leon, Jake, and a yet-to-be-announced label.

Resident Evil 6 puts players in the shoes of multiple protagonists: Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, and newcomer, Jake Muller. The game will take players to different story paths set in America, Eastern Europe, and China.

The game will be out on October 2; check out GameSpot's coverage on the title.

Making its way out of the trunk of the gaming world, this resident evil 6 leather jacket is a piece crafted for the fashion lovers of today. Despite the associated fact that it appeared in 6th edition of famous action packed video game, resident evil it is a jacket through which the fashion designers exhibited their ingenious skills and showed up the world that a muse to look magnanimous can also be extracted out of the world of fantasy. Check this awesome resident evil 6 leather jacket:

Bargain!

 

Gonna get me two of these (if the high demand don't limit 'em to one per customer) - one to wear out and about for 'everyday' use, and a 'special' one to wear just at home, butt nekkid except for my jacket, with a replica handgun, in front of the mirror and, erm, err, umm, all that...

LOL at this whole idea.  I would feel more like a fool if I paid a grand for that.  You can get a real decent TV for that.  Or better yet just do yourself a favor and put that money up for a rainy day.

This is not the way to make money Capcom... Just make better games and you will get your profits. You will not get profit from charging fans a $1000 for your product.

I bet its not going to be a good quality jacket, since capcom cant focus on good quality games anymore. (but I do like dragons dogma though, they just got lucky on that one lol)

I hope Capcom doesn't think the Jacket is the selling point of the game.

:| throw in a rocket launcher with infinite ammo and you have a deal Umbrella. But I'll throw the "game" in the bin afterwards and won't play it.....and then I'll be coming after you.......you sick bastards.

Now capcom selling jackets???

I wont be surprised if they will sell UNDER-WEARS soon xD

Hmmm this can't be the actual price.  There is no way the jacket could cost that much i mean you deduct the game and tablet cases the jacket would have to cost around 900 bucks.  Now you can buy a very good wolverine replica leather jacket online for about 200 bucks and its real leather.  So unless they are implying that its THE best leather money can buy as well as a VERY VERY VERY limited amount made, it would not cost near this much.  Even if it was the things i said i still can't see it costing this much.  I'm sure after this game is out there will be plenty of well made quality leather jackets being made as replicas to leons jacket for 200 bucks on ebay.  Anyway i'm sure some people will waste there cash on this and Capcom are rubbing there money smelling hands together just at the thought of this.

You can buy a better Jacket and the game and all for tablet cases for half that. Spending $1,000 is a huge waste.

knowing Capcom's greed ,I bet hose jackets have been made in some random Japanese or even Chinese sweatshop....

Lame..  Another reason I'm not gonna get this game capcom has fallen on some shady business practices and money hungry plots...

If I want a Leon jacket, I'll go to my local cosplay shop and order one for 100 bucks.

Trust me, better wait for "Gold" or "Ultimate" edition for this game. With all the DLC and new content, plus a cheaper price of course..

As a guy who'd spend any given amount of money on a leather jacket, this time I must say no - when a game comes with an item of clothing it's almost certain that the latter is of unacceptable, shitty quality.

$1000, oh my. I think I'd rather save it up for future next-gen console or a power PC.

i was going to say Capcom's being ridiculous here until I realized it should be directed at any of us if we actually buy it

Jesus christ! I'm a resident evil fan like any other gamer , but $1000 for a replica of Leon's jacket?! Capcom you were crazy to cancel Megaman Legends 3 and now you're going to the deep end.

Better save the money for the PS3/PS4 Collector's Edition of the remake of Final Fantasy VII, of course, if it is released someday. Anyway, I'm already doing my savings.

I would hope it is an exact replica of the jacket and some of the finest leather money can buy. If you take away $60 for the game and $30 for the cover that leaves $910 for the jacket. So it damn well better be a $900 jacket.

aside from the specific price, it's not really different from the existing practices of preorder bonuses or paid "DLC."  It simply provides a means for customers who WANT to throw their money away to do so.

Lmao for some reason i'm pretty sure this is going to sell like hot cakes.I love the RE series but i have actual bills to pay so excuse me.

$1,000? For a nice jacket and a few cheesy tablet covers?

 

UNACCEPTABLE.

angel55033

As much as I LOVE Resident Evil and still is one of my favorite games if I had money to just throw away sure I'd buy it but I'm broke so won't be happening, the game I'll buy at least I don't have a tablet so a tablet cover is useless for me unless other stores offer something else for a preorder that's semi decent i'll just wait.

Everyone is kinda missing the point... Biohazard 6 premium edition, not Resident Evil 6. Meaning it's Japan only, and aimed only at the Japanese consumers. This won't be seeing light here. And for people questioning who would cough up that kind of cash? Believe it or not but majority of the retail outlets there have the preorders filled. So....yea, there are people buying it... I'm just hoping for $1200+, it better be made of real leather.

This is why Capcom is the greatest video game company ever. Talk about bang for your buck!

Deeeeeeerp.

A thousand bucks for a cheaply made jacket, hahahaha. This is professional trolling at its finest.

After a fail that RE5 was I got fudged again when i heard about gold edition. There is no way im gonna buy RE6, no to mention 1000 dolla CE. Is there a game that is worth preordering these days? If this game is amazing, then il consider waiting for complete edition (after price drop)

devilmaycry27

 @eb8k shit, you could have at least sold that idea before giving it to them for free...:D

 @Q-abs

 Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Unless they release some amazing collectors edition in the U.S. (for less than $200), I'm probably waiting for the Gold Edition.

 @comb5 im not putting up with it unless its bullet proof and has built-in jetpack.

 @Pablo_Heroin Borderlands 2 is definitely worth pre-ordering, but you already missed out on the Ultimate Loot Chest edition.

 @devilmaycry27 Um, you know the most well known guy who bought magic beans actually got a magic harp and a gold egg laying goose out of the deal?

 @comb5 Thats how you see it, Im not interested in Borderlands 2. New Amesia game will probably be my last purchase this year.

devilmaycry27
devilmaycry27

 @RedLegZeff also the only way i would pay 1000 on this game is if it came with autograph pics of the main voice actors, a resident evil t-virus capsule replica case. 4 Advance movie tickets for the new resident evil movie and signed autograph pics from the cast of the movie as well and the red jewel spider thing on jills chest that was in the last movie and resident evil 5 game not a small version of it but like a big huge the size of my arm big version of it. and a umbrella employee badge with my name on it. now that stuff i listed is maybe worth a 1000 bucks

devilmaycry27
devilmaycry27

 @RedLegZeff um u know he had a giant on his ass trying to kill him right. but if u wanna buy a 1000 game for a jacket u could get somewhere else for maybe 200 bucks then go for it but this jacket remind me of dead raising 2 they were selling the jacket from the main character as well

 @buccomatic Have you played Borderlands 1? I am still currently playing it and have been since it came out almost three years ago. It would take some sort of radical change to the gameplay or mechanics of the second one to make it fail.
