It says right there in the product description on the Amazon page what is included.

If you care about DLC, it does include all of the pre-order bonuses, plus two extra guns.

I love Resident Evil but I'm not so sure about this. If I was gonna bite I should have done it when it was $60 for the special edition. But a nice deal for others.

Of note, all the DLC included with the Special Edition as well as all individual retail preorder bonuses (all of which are included by default in the special edition) with be day 1 DLC for $7. In fact, I think they already released it on the marketplace if someone wants to confirm.

The game just got a 3/10, I'd be careful to jump on this.

Pretty sure that review is for single-player only though.

Yep, they have the three individual packs for $5 or a bundle of everything for $7 up on the marketplace on 360 at least.

Last weekend I cancelled my $59.99 Special Edition pre-order from a couple months back.

Your welcome to whoever gets it lol i'll pass game looks blah. Hurry up RE6!


ALSO FYI the 3/10 score was for single player only and online is the main focus of this RE.. From the guys who screwed up SOCOM.

We'll have to see if there's more "fun" review scores like this one.

I canceled my PS3 version this morning so maybe a few of those will end up back for sale. The fact that it's Capcom and that 3/10 review spooked me.

I'm not expecting great reviews as I think there are a core group of gamers that have a negative bias towards anything Capcom and are always going to be disappointed that recent RE releases have departed from the original "survival horror" roots.

Remember the 3/10 review is Single Player only, I'm holding out hope for the MP section. I doubt Left 4 Dead would be so critically acclaimed on it's single player merits.

Anyone know how much release day delivery costs? Amazon doesn't list the prices next to the shipping selections.

Same for me, though I cancelled the PS3 version last month when the gameplay videos showed up. I can't justify $60 for this game, even if it was the special edition.

IIRC it's $.99 if you don't have prime, add to cart and go to checkout to see lazy ass! ;)

Haha I'm in the same boat. The MP looked fun, but honestly, I'm not a big time multiplayer person, especially with shooters. I get bored pretty fast after a while. I have debated on per-ordering this, but I think I'll just wait on a price drop.

I hope not because that is the only reason I placed an order. I will probably never even play it. It can sit there with the other games that never get played but I bought because the case looked cool.
