Will I pick it up? The game definitely, as I was a huge fan of RE5. In fact it’s one of my favourite games on the Xbox 360, mostly due to it’s incredibly intense couch co-op.
Will I pick up the Collector’s Edition? Maybe, the art book, emblems and hoodie are cool but everything else is just filler. So ultimately like most things it will come down to price… which has yet to be announced.
A limited number of the Resident Evil 6: Collector’s Editions will be available for pre-order in Australia through EB Games and JB Hi-Fi.

While Nintendo are counting piles of money atop both the hardware and software sales charts for the world in 2008 other companies are facing mass lay-offs, closures and cancellations as the industry starts to show some cracks from the latest financial crisis. Electronic Arts have been no exception, closing studios and canceling titles (such as Tiberium) as necessary to keep their heads above water in a competitive market.
