XBox 360 includes 4 games (including RE6) and a movie while PS3 includes 6 games including RE6. Although product description includes RE5 but product feature doesn't. I don't think RE5 Gold edition is included for PS3 if Capcom plans to balance out between consoles.
"Interestingly, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game contain different lineups -- with PS3 owners getting six games to the 360's four (though 360 owners will get Resident Evil Degeneration, a CG animated film as well). Still, if you have both systems, PlayStation 3 would be a much better value for the money."
It sucks that theyre all codes. So the Case set itself will be nothing more then the normal case, maybe with a different box art, and 6 codes crammed onto one piece of paper. Its a great deal if you're not a fan of physical copies. But if you are, like I am, this actually is going to feel pretty cheap and crappy when you get your hands on it.
It's a good deal for those who don't own those games already, but there's nothing there for me since I own it already except for RE6 of course. I'd prefer a true Blu-ray level upscale, 25GB game, 3D graphics, Move support etc, but now we just get a lame 8GB XBROKE port that's leaving 2/3 the Blu-ray empty again. With those muddy graphics, lower rez than RE5 it has to be another 8GB game.
This is disappointing news. Any true fan of RE has quadruple dipped on all of these games already on several different consoles. This is a good set to release after RE6 has had 8 months of shelf time. Sometime after all the DLC has been released so EVERYTHING is included. As a fan of the series I want a Collector's Edition specific to RE6.
The Gamecube version of RE1, most people call it REmake, is the best version of any RE out there. I wonder if it is still exclusive to Nintendo and that's why it wasn't included. I have played that game recently and it still holds up to today's standards. At the time of release it was the best looking game ever made. If that was included in this package (it should be considering the "HD Age" we are living in) this would be a no-brainer. Without it, meh. I already have RE5 Gold and have beaten RE4 so many times. The PSN versions of the original PS1 games don't hold up that well on a large (42+") HD TV, you're better off finding a smaller screen to play them on.
Monetarily I disagree with most of you as I think this is a decent deal though. The PS1 games cost $6 each, RE4 HD is $20, and RE5 Gold is still about $25 used, so you're already over $60 and haven't even added in RE6, which will be $60, technically saving you the price of the game itself.
I just realized though that the 360 version has Code Veronica X: HD! That is a travesty that it won't be included in the PS3 version. If the PS3 version was only RE4 HD, RE5 Gold, and RE Code Veronica X HD I would absolutely buy it even without the PS1 games. Why make 2 different versions???

i'm like 99.999999% sure the real reason is that capcom is too lazy to port the gc versions over to ps3 system especially when they already have the ps1 classic re director's cut available for download (a simple matter of including a download code in the box). And it's painfully obvious that it's also the reason we are getting ps1 RE DC on this anthology and not the original ps1 RE non DC.
the truth of the matter is. capcom post re4, mvc2 era is a greedy and lazy company. But all that could be "accepted" if they still made top tier games but their games suck now so even that they fail. (i.e. re5 sucked, re6 demo's sucked, mvc3 sucked, they canceled mml3, all their super editions sucked and are purely only cash grabbing attempts, etc etc)
tldr; forget capcom, i can't wait until shinji mikami newest horror game comes out from his own studio.
Hey, hey... RE: Director's Cut was the definitive version back in the day, with added Dual Shock support. Just because Capcom released the REmake on GC years later doesn't diminish the quality of RE:DC.
The reason why the PS3 and 360 versions of the Collector's Edition are different is simple, RE1-3 aren't available and never will be, those are Playstation exclusives in their original form and I highly doubt they'll ever port them or the GC remakes/ports to any other system(except Nintendo systems for the GC games) for a long time.
What it boils down to really is Capcom screwed the pooch with this CE. I can seriously see why people who only own a 360 are mad. GC exclusivity of the REmakes/updates, PS exclusivity for the RE 1-3... yeah, adding the extra games were a mistake.
Will I buy Anthology, HECK YEAH! Will I enjoy the fact all but RE6 is a DL code? not a chance... I'll probably end up getting a physical copy of RE5 GE for my collection even after buying Anthology.
You do know that Nintendo owns the licensing rights to REmake and RE Zero right? It has nothing to do with lazy it has everything to do with the fact that they are exclusive to Nintendo and there is nothing they can do about it. Obviously if they could port them they would have considering anything without Mario or Zelda sells at a loss on the garbage Wii
definetly preordered mine today at bestbuy they give a 20$ cert with it even though you have to wait 30 days to use. Its a great deal i believe i hate its PSN games though. Already own 5 so just going to try and dumped that. i have 4 on ps2 but id take the upgrade to HD. Can't wait for this game to come out
