The lights are on
If you're willing to spend an extra $30 when you buy Capcom's upcoming Resident Evil 6, you could also score digital copies of a handful of past classics from the series.
Today, on its blog Capcom-Unity, the company confirmed rumors that there would be special Resident Evil 6 Anthology editions in the U.S.
Resident Evil 6 Anthology will retail for $89.99 and will release on October 2 alongside the standard edition of the game. 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.
Here are the games included for both systems.
RESIDENT EVIL 6 ANTHOLOGY (PS3)
Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition
Resident Evil 4 HD
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
Resident Evil 2
Resident Evil: Director's Cut
RESIDENT EVIL 6 ARCHIVES (360)
Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD
Resident Evil Degeneration (DVD film)

Wow, that's pretty damn good.
Cool, but I still have all my Resident Evil games. This is great for people to catch up on the series for sure.
Damn the 360 version got gimped
Wow that's bad ass! But it looks like the 360 people are kinda getting screwed a bit. Good thing my buddy and I are getting it for the PS3.
All I'd need for PS3 would be 4, 5, and 6 since PS+ got 1, 2, and 3 for free several months ago.
Gosh, what about PC?
Well 1, 2 and 3 definitely aren't going on Xbox... because they've been available now for years on PSN and if they were ever gonna go to Xbox it would have happened...
4,5 are on Xbox and PS3 Code Veronica is on Xbox and I'm pretty sure it's on PS3 also...
but yeah... through PS+ I have 1,2,3,4... I had 5 for xbox and I have 6 pre-ordered...
It would be nice to have them all on the PS3 though.
and if Xbox players pay the extra 30 they get half of what the others do. Yeah this has dumb written all over it.
So Xbox pays the same amount on only gets half of the games versus the PS3? That is the dumbest idea ever. Really Capcom?
Well that sucks, being a 360 owner that is, I already purchased RE 4, 5 and Code Veronica X. They need to release the previous games on both systems, grrrrr.
They seem to constantly forget that REmake was their best work.
Hm. I wonder if it has to do with the licensing or something, Why the xbox has half the stuff that is.
