Capcom announces Resident Evil 6 Anthology

re6

This bit of info sorta got lost in the four day long tsumani of videogame news that was E3 last week, but it’s too cool not to mention here.  When Capcom releases Resident Evil 6 this October, they will be offering special versions for both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 which will include multiple titles from the franchise’s past.  Read on for all the details. 

Announced on the Capcom Unity blog, the special editions will come loaded with digital versions of previous Resident Evil games.  The versions for PS3 and Xbox 360 are a little different, so here is what comes with each.

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 6

-Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition

-Resident Evil 4 HD

-Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD

-Resident Evil Degeneration (DVD film)

Both editions will retail for $89.99 and will be available on launch day.  Now, I know what you’re thinking, and you’re right.  The PS3 version is totally better.  Both, however, offer an incredible amount of quality gaming for your money.  Not only will the Anthology and Archive editions give new fans a chance to get caught up on the series, it will also give long time fans the ability to play these classics without having to haul out their old systems.  Pretty cool, huh?  Resident Evil 6 launches October 2nd.

By the way, I realize that the hardest of the hardcore still have their PS2s hooked up and ready to go.  When I said “long time fans” I meant long time fans with limited entertainment center shelf space. OK?
