So besides what it mentions in the description, what is this book all about? I see it is published by Brady, is it just a strategy guide with extra concept art? Or is it like a compilation of info from the earlier games?

I've had this pre-ordered since Sept. and I keep getting emails about it being pushed back. At first it was supposed to be published Oct. 2, then it was Oct. 8, and now Oct. 18. So I hope they'll print the damn thing. I got vol 2 from Best Buy about a month ago. It was pennied out along with an Infamous 2 guide. The guy just shrugged and gave me both books for free. Only time I got some pennied out guides. Basically made my day.

Whew!! Glad I sold my RE Archives 1 a week or so ago for ~$135! :D :D

I'm definitely putting in my preorder for this, it's only a few dollars more than the 2nd book by itself.

My wife picked up volume 1 for $6 for me. I am hoping I'll find a used volume 2 for a similar price once this actually prints.

Was able to return my volume 2 copy to amazon for a full refund, so I pre-ordered this.

I had no idea the first one was so valuable OR that there was a volume 2. I guess I should see if there's still anyone that will buy my volume 1 for more than $30 or so, and then I can just get the bundle for free.

I sold mine for $65 as a quick sell, could have gotten more, but didn't want to wait and risk it not selling for $100. But if you check eBay the last ones that sold went for $50-100. They used to go for a lot more.

lol when did they make volume 2. ive had the first archives since day 1. As a video game collector, and by proxy all thigns video game related, i couldnt bring myself to sell my volume 1. But now that i know theres a volume 2, ill have to find that itself. Or just get volume 1 and II and keep my original volume 1 anyway. YEa ill just wait for the volume 2s to flood in at cheap prices so ic an have both separately

I'm sure people will pay $20 for a reprint of Volume 1, so you could buy the bundle and just sell Volume 1. Just a suggestion, as I haven't seen Vol 2 drop past $15 in the last 10 months.

Have had the first one on the shelf for a while. Good stuff, fun to look at for RE fans. Almost ordered 2 but wasn't sure how much would be repeated content. Maybe if Archives 2 individual gets a further price drop I'll finally do that. Obviously a good deal here though for newcomers.

Archives Vol 1 was printed in 2005, it covers most (if not all) of the games prior to then. I do not own Vol 1 yet so I am unsure as to the exact content.

Vol 2 covers RE4, 5, Chronicles, and I think Degeneration. I did not look through mine in depth before returning it to get the bundle.

As such I doubt there is much duplicate content, Vol 2 was not a revision or a reprint, it was the next volume in the series.
