Collectors clamor for $1,300 Resident Evil 6 'Premium Edition'

To entice fans, publishers often include extras (like posters or statues) with games. But few cost as much as this stylish Resident Evil 6 bundle.

Do you get grouchy over shelling out $60 for a video game? You might faint when you check out this ultra-rare Japanese Resident Evil 6 "Premium Edition" that costs $1,300.

Aside from a copy of a game packed full of monsters and horror, the bundle includes a replica of protagonist Leon Kennedy's leather jacket (in small through extra-large sizes) and pill cases labeled with various character names.

Japanese gamers can preorder Resident Evil 6 "Premium Edition" now, and surprisingly, preorder demand for the package seems very healthy despite the high price. Don't let the rugged looks fool you; the jacket definitely carries some swagger, but we think a local motorcycle outfitter might carry something similar for far less.

As of this evening, the Capcom e-store only offers the size-small Leon jacket package (with other sizes sold out) for PlayStation 3, while showing "low inventory" for several jacket sizes sold with the Xbox 360 premium version of the game.
