Would You Pay $1,300 For The Resident Evil 6 Premium Edition?
That's what Capcom wants to know, so they're asking.
The publisher will release a ridiculously pricey special edition of Resident Evil 6 in Japan this fall: It comes with "a faithful replica of Leon's leather jacket" along with four tablet covers, and it'll retail for 105,000 yen, or nearly $1,300.
...that's a lot of money, even for the hardcore franchise followers. It definitely seems like something that would probably remain in Japan, but Capcom is asking North American gamers if it's something they'd possibly purchase. The poll is up over at the Capcom-Unity website and as of right now, the split is 75/25 in favor of "No way. Not interested." That's hardly surprising, but perhaps it's mildly interesting to note that 1/4 of voters really would pay that much money for this collector's edition. That jacket must be pretty high quality, wouldn't you say?
Anyway, feel free to vote. The chances of me paying $1,300 for a video game, regardless of the extra stuff, is pretty damn slim...the "extra stuff" would have to be an ounce of gold or something.
