Expensive collectors editions for AAA games have become the norm these days: Uber-fans can show their favorite franchises some love by paying an extra 40-90 bucks for concept art, day-one DLC and, my personal favorite, a plastic statue. If you like these kinds of rewards, than they're well-worth the price: If not, it's hard not to wonder why they keep making them.
If you think spending $100-$150 seems questionable, than you're gonna love this: Capcom unveiled that Japanese "premium edition" of Resident Evil 6: The series' ultimate fans will be shelling out ¥100,000, ($1,300 USD) to pick up the highly unorthodox package.
To be fair, for $1,300, you aren't getting standard gamer-swag. In addition to the game, the package comes with four character-specific phone cases designed for Leon, Chris, new protagonist Luke and... another "secret" character. More to the point, it also comes with a leather jacket designed after the one Leon wears. The jacket comes in sizes S-XL.
As you might expect, this is a very limited edition: they're making 5,000 sets, total. If you can play the game in Japanese or are into paying around 1,500 dollars for a leather jacket (after shipping costs), than you can pre-order it now. Capcom will stop taking pre-orders on June 11th.
If nothing else, Capcom is releasing one of the most expensive video game editions ever. Getting your hands on a piece of history like that has to be worth something, right?
