"By comparison, a standard copy of Resident Evil 6 in Japan is priced at ¥7,980 or $99."


Please tell me this is the case with all games in japan and it's just the difference between the Yen and the USD currency.

What a dum price to sell the game alone and the cumbo at. They should sell it around $200 for the cumbo and the game should be around $50. Than they might sell alot more.

"Not that any of this justifies the jaw-dropping price, because even designer leather jackets shouldn't excede a few hundred bucks, which is not to say you can't snag one for less than that."

I think you are vastly underestimating the costs of designer leather jackets.

It better be a nice jacket made by an established brand but I could see dropping that much on a labelled leather jacket alone. Heck, if you Google "designer leather jacket" the second item costs more than the game alone.

^ Somehow, I doubt the one included in the Premium Edition will be of such quality.

I dont blame capcom for this. there are some pretty die hard fans out there (more than 200) and thats already... How much... Approximately $200000+ in their capcoms pocket. Easy money. Although im not sure about the price of the game itself... $99... Wow

If it does come to North America, I may consider getting it. It will probably be $1000, AnD I guarantee I can sell the Character and the Jacket for more than that in a couple years.

aside the obvious moneygrubbing i think the intent is to let this item become rare and valuable. it might gain some value over the years so let's just hope the collectors know howto take of leather jackets.

that said i can already imagine that in a few hundred years little exclusive game trinkets from this time will have a considerable value being from the early pioneer days of the videogame era and all but by the time that happens we'll be long gone.

it's a shame really, i'd love to watch some genius fork over millions of spacedollars at an auction to get my (by then) one of a kind exclusive duke nukem forever bust only to discover years later in the recently salvaged archives of the ancient 21th centruy internet that the game had received lower ratings then the groundwater sits in the sahara during dry season.

Yeah that's just the Japanese price, I'd shoot my knee if we got that price.

This confirms my previous claims on CAPCOM, this is blatantly a ripoff and it's time to boycott. I'll keep it short, *bleep* CAPCOM.

Total number of sales of the RE series is 47 million units. It'll be called to obtain only the people of 0.01 percent.
But I do not buy it lol
