    ...but full of enough stuff to probably make it worth it if you're a really big fan.

    It's pretty cool that so much went into it, but I really can't see why I would need any of it. I like the Chris figurine (because I like figurines), but everything else would likely just be kept in the box. The messenger bag is nice (thankfully not full of Kijuju writing like everything else) , but probably cheaply made, the necklace is really big and ugly, and I stand firm that Bonus videos of behind the scenes documentaries and artwork should just be available for free on Xbox LIVE.

    Will you be dropping the benjamin on it?

    What the hell is this trash? Fuck that. A worthy bonus would include, say, all the previous RE games on another disc or two, but nooooooooo...

    I would kill to play a high def version of REmake.

    There are a lot of games I spent the extra money on for the special edition. MGS4, GTA4, even Resistance 2 simply because it came with a kickass Chimeran action figure/plastic statue for like 10 bucks more.

    However, I will not be getting this. RE sucks.

    If this was a collector's edition containing the game soundtrack, bonus art book, behind the scenes DVD and a steel case I'd consider shelling out 75 dollars for it.

    90 dollars for all of that? No thanks.

    Well, it does have a nice steel case, and a Bonus DVD. But I agree that the price, and the ridiculous necklaces they've thrown in to up the price, make this a no-buy for me.
