This amazing set basically gives you PlayStation versions (all playable on PS3) of virtually all of the main Resident Evil games, including the upcoming “Resident Evil Revival Selection” PS3 versions of Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 4 (in disc form, outside Japan Resident Evil Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 4 HD will be released on XBLA and PSN as downloadable games).
Here is what’s included in the box set, for a Japanese price of ¥7,800 (roughly US$96):
In addition you get the following extras:
Spacer for PS3’s Resident Evil 5 or Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition.
The soundtrack CDs are the same as those that were included as bonus Cds for the Resident Evil: Code Veronica/Resident Evil 4 PS2 Value Pack.
It’s also important to note that RE’s 1,2 and 3 ship on PSOne executable disc, and include a special design unique to this set.
Notably missing from the set is the Resident Evil 1 GameCube remake and the GameCube exclusive Resident Evil 0 (both of which are available for Wii under the Resident Evil Archives banner). You can buy Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil remake (Wii) and Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil 0 (Wii) right now for about $15 each via Amazon (great deal if you don’t own the GameCube versions).
The Biohazard: 15th Anniversary Box collection will be released in Japan on September 8, 2011 exclusively for PS3. No word on whether or not this set will be released outside of Japan.
I wouldn’t bank on it, but remember that the PS3 is region-free, meaning you can import this set and play the games just fine on your PS3! Woot woot!
I may spring for this thing…. I loves me some box sets! Buy the Resident Evil collection 15th anniversary set at the e-Capcom Japanese store.
Now when the heck are we gonna hear about Resident Evil 6?
