You know, there was a time when a game just came in a box. Maybe, maaaaybe you would get a flashy instruction manual, but nothing like we have seen for the past few years. Collector’s Editions are hot right now, everyone comes out with one, and Resident Evil 5 isn’t about to skip over the tradition. What you are staring at above this text is the North American Resident Evil 5 CE, and yes, it was crafted in the fires of Olympus. What does this CE come with? Well, you get a Tricell messenger bag (cause gamers love bags), a Chris Redfield figurine, BSAA patch, KiJuju-inspired pendant, and a steel book that features artwork from the game. Also included is a bonus disc that includes special content. Oh, and you get the actual game too.
So there you have it folks, one over sized Collector’s Edition for your loving, at a smooth price of $89.99. I’ve already pre-ordered mine, and you bet your a** I am going to wear that necklace. And when people ask me what it is, I’m going to tell them it’s classified whilst petting my Chris Redfield figurine.
