    $1200 Resident Evil 6 Plat Edition Announced

    So we've all seen some pretty crazy, overpriced collector edition's in our day, I think this one just about takes the cake. When I saw this I thought for $1200 you'd get something REALLY cool, like a nice samurai edge replica, a S.T.A.R.S. outfit, a crank maybe, but it turns out for $1200 all you get is some stupid tablet covers, the game (obviously), and a replica of leon's jacket from the game, and that's it. >.> Right now it's only being released in Japan, and its uncertain wether or not it'll be sold in North America and Europe, but even if it did, who the hell would spend $1200 for a freakin jacket (this is coming from a HARDcore RE fan)? I mean its cool and all BUT OVER $1200!??! Then again its Capcom, so what did you expect. Here's the link to the article, let me know if this was available in your region if you'd actually buy it.

    Also, just in case you haven't seen the amazing new trailer for the game, heres the link for that as well.

    A jacket? Like a really really nice leather jacket? You can go to a mid-to-high range department store and find jackets approaching the $1000 price tag. Seems like a lot of money though.

    Wow! Hell no, I wouldn't pay that for any collectors edition for any game. That's insanely high. It's probably not even genuine leather. If you were willing to pay that then you need punched in the face.

    Thing is, people will buy this... there's like 500 of 'em, so that's reason enough for some people to justify the cost...

    If there is a very limited number and the game sells well, this may be an investment. If you keep one of these editions in mint condition for the next 10-20 years somebody may offer you more than what you originally paid for it. It's an ultra collector's edition.

    Needless to say this is ridiculous. The only thing that makes this even remotely worth $1,200 is the jacket, and it better be a pretty-fucking-nice jacket. :stare:

    Hell even with the Jacket it's not worth $1,200. I have a replica of Clark's Smallville Jacket and it's made out of lambskin. And it only cost $450. And that was for the black one. The red one was still only $650. So $1,200 for Leon's Jacket? Is ridiculous! You can have one made cheaper than that!

    Yep, that is outrageous. I can think of much better ways to spend $1200.

    Well, that's ne very cool jacket indeed, but I think I'd rather try to find one that looks similar on some random store.

    Also, who the hell thought cell phone cases were good collector's items ? Capcom executives should really stop smokign weed.

    I'm all about collector's editions for games I really like, but this is extremely going overboard. There are people that will pay that and hey, more power to ya I guess but damn that's pricey. Like others have said, it better be real leather.

    Did you read the actual link?
    the jacket is apparently made from fine soft leather

    here is the thing though.. cell phones are the rage in japan. those cases will probably attract more people than the coat will.
