Resident Evil 6’s premium edition is amazing, price tag proves it

Special editions have become a bit, well, silly haven’t they? But publishers are starting to tone it down; Modern Warfare 3 ditched any plans for a super-expensive premium edition unlike the last two entries in the series that were armed with RC cars and night vision goggles.

Capcom is the exception and has trumped all that with Resident Evil 6, though. The publisher has revealed a premium edition for the game in Japan, which comes with the rather amazing addition of protagonist Leon Kennedy’s leather jacket, as seen in the two trailers released for the game so far.

Even more amazing? The price; it costs a staggering 105,000 yen. That comes to $1,240/£780. Must be a really nice jacket.

Four tablet case covers are also included. The set is exclusive to Japan right now, but in this economy who wouldn’t splash out on it over here in the west?!

Resident Evil 6 hits PS3 and 360 on October 2.
