The game hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 2nd, 2012, it will also be released for PC sometime in the future, although a date has yet to be announced.
The game is available in two special editions depending on the platform. The PS3 “Anthology” edition contains free included download-codes for every PS1 edition of Resident Evil available on the PlayStation Network!
This means the PS3 Resident Evil 6 Anthology Collector’s Edition includes RE1-RE6 that is: Resident Evil 1: Director’s Cut (RE ’96), Resident Evil 2: Dual Shock Edition, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil: Code Veronica HD, Resident Evil 4 HD and Resident Evil 5: Gold! That’s along with a hardcopy disc of Resident Evil 6 of course.
The Xbox 360 Collector’s Edition is called “Archives”, this version is gimped, and only includes Resident Evil 5: Gold, Resident Evil 4: HD and Resident Evil: Code Veronica HD, but includes the Resident Evil: Degeneration CG movie, which is not part of the PS3 collection.
Obviously the PS3 set is the way to go, which will give you the complete Resident Evil saga all playable on one system!
The Collector’s Editions will cost you a pretty penny though, as both sets go for $90 dollars, whereas the standard Resident Evil 6 game by itself runs the typical $60.
How excited are you for RE6? Have you pre-ordered Resident Evil 6 yet and do you plan on picking it up?
Sadly, I am not sure if I’ll have the money to buy the game. :( I’m literally considering pawning my 3DS to do so…. but not sure if I want to take that drastic measure. Hopefully I will have a job soon so I can afford the game…. my old boss made a date of October 2nd months in advance hoping we could both co-op it. Which we did for RE5 when it came out and had a blast. I may have to cancel that though until a later date.
Hopefully I’ll get a job within the remaining days of the month though and be able to afford to pick the game up at launch. I cannot WAIT and I think the game looks absolutely insane. I am replaying all of the Resident Evil games right now, and still intend to try and finish most of them before October 2nd. I started replaying Final Fantasy VIII though and got sidetracked. >_< DAMN!
