Resident Evil 6 Gets Two Collections For PS3 And Xbox 360

Capcom’s biggest hit this year is obviously going to be Resident Evil 6. The franchise has brought in more and more fans over the years as it has moved away from its survival-horror roots to the more action focused horror-shooter that we know it as today. All the new players coming to the series might need a refresher and Capcom has just the thing.

Capcom announced today that Resident Evil 6 Anthology and Resident Evil 6 Archives will be hitting the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 respectively later this year alongside the standard release. The two collections aim to let players catch up on the latest happenings in the Resident Evil universe by collecting the prior games together in a digital package.

Each version will cost $89.99 and contains the following games:


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

Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition

Resident Evil 4 HD

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD

Resident Evil Degeneration (DVD film)

As far as completeness goes, the PS3 collection is by far the much better collection. Getting digital versions of the original PlayStation titles will go along to introducing new players to what are arguably the golden age of Resident Evil when the games were actually scary.

The Xbox 360 version is no slouch, however, as it contains Code Veronica X HD which the PS3 version lacks. It could be argued that Code Veronica X is essential to the overall Resident Evil storyline, but it’s really up to personal preference. Getting the Degeneration film is also a nice touch that the PS3 version lacks.

Either way, it would appear that Residen Evil fans who want to catch up on their history have a pretty good collection to look forward to. The price might seem a little steep, but we have yet to see if these collections will have any other extra goodies. The price tag is the same amount I paid for the Resident Evil 5 Collector’s Edition and I got plenty of sweet swag to go along with the game. Here’s hoping these collections offer the same.

While we’re at it, check out the E3 2012 trailer for Resident Evil 6. I’m still bummed that Microsoft keeps on paying off these publishers to get timed exclusive DLC, but that shouldn’t effect what should be another great entry in the Resident Evil franchise.

    Look at the differences between these two collections! No wonder the Xbox 360 is getting DLC first they clearly got shafted in terms of games the ps3 version has 6 games
    The 360 Version has 4 games and a Movie absolutely NO ONE cares to watch x.X

    I’d say the timed DLC (should had been Exclusive Even)
    Is justification of how Shafted 360 owners are getting in this deal.

      well i dont blame capcom for shafting 360 players considering playstation was their original system plus most of the games available on archives is available on the playstation store and are not on the xbox marketplace.

    i will fancy buying this game for my Xbox 360.My brother likes games of this type.have anyone bought this game???

  • Daniel

    this sucks for long time fans like me, considering there are a few games i didn’t get… I have all these already…

    PS1 – RE Directors Cut
    PS1 – RE2 Dual Shock
    PS1 – RE3
    GC – REØ
    GC – RE
    GC – RE4
    Wii – RE4 Wii
    PS2 – RE: Code Veronica
    *PS3: – RE2 (PSN)
    *PS3: – RE5: Gold Edition

    I would have loved to seen the games updated to HD, or a port of Zero and the game cube remake of the original. Granted I can play every single one of these games on my ps3 other than the nintendo ones, this is very upsetting! I already have the BluRay of Degeneration, so I get essentially nothing at all. I always strive to buy games on my PS3, but the Veronica HD might be the game breaker for me, if the other games were remakes it would be different but I already own all these games!

    I agree with Daniel completely. I already own all of these games, how about an HD collection containing 1,2,3 and code veronica and it not be a download voucher. I want an actual game I can put on my shelf with my collection. The Europe CE is way cooler I might just have to import for this one.
