Just wanted to share this because I know how hard of a time I had not only finding a decent price on it, but finding it at all last month (I ended up paying $74.99 from Newegg on January 20), so I thought this might help someone out.

Amazon has Resident Evil 6: Archives (Ships from and sold by Amazon.com) for $48.41.

EDIT: Now $53.25.

Bah, I forgot Archives was the 360 version. Its missing hella games.


Yea, it is. It still comes with 4, 5, and CODE: Veronica X though, which is between $40 and $60 worth of content itself (depending on how cost-efficient you are), so you're effectively getting RE6 for nothing. That's my math, at least.

Man that would have been an excellent price a month ago before the price of RE6 tanked... still a good deal and value. Really wish it was for the anthology though.

Same here. I am actually thinking it may be. I don't know when I will get to them, but I think I want them.

:::EDIT:::
So i went ahead and jumped on it. I would love to replay through both 4 and Code Veronica again, and they are at their cheapest maybe 30 dollars. so at that price and the 20 I am already willing to pay for 6 I think it is worth it. 5 is then just an added bonus.

i agree unfortunately for me i need to wait till i get my funds from my latest sale of the zelda le book from amazon to buy it and then i need to go to another town and return re6 when i receive it from best buy

Just got done playing 4 on 360. That game is so still so fucking good once you get past the one analog thing. Raccoon City and 6 though...

RE4, RE5 GE, and RE Code Veronica X are all DLC titles. You receive codes to redeem for them on Live, so they have the applicable achievements included with each game. I believe RE4 and CVX have 12 each (still totaling 1000GS per game) and RE5 has the same achievements you would be working for if you had a physical copy of the game.

I think you guys buying it drove the price up. It's been creeping down from 65 over the past 3 days. I've been sitting waiting to buy when it bottoms out or I get my mypoints gift card for amazon. It's been dropping nightly around 7 PST.

I think Amazon is trying some new layouts and it messed up their cart for some reason. I have stuff that says $13, but if you click on it, it says $16. I think their website is a little glitchy right now.

Decent deal. RE 4 HD and CV:HD can be had on sale for $10 each. You can get RE 5 Gold for like $20 on disc from time to time. I'd pick this up if I did not have RE 5 Gold from PS+. Other thing to keep in mind is that RE 4 is better on Wii. Not sure what the definitive version of CV is though.

Really? That's like the only time I've heard someone say a multi-platform game is better on the Wii. Not meant to be a joke or anything, but most of the time, Wii really doesn't do very well.

I keep hearing that too, so I've been curious to find out how it plays.

Anyways, I got this for 90 bucks near launch and although I haven't been playing it all that much, I still think the amount of value you're getting is great, especially for this price.

So the only thing on disc is RE6 and everything else has to be downloaded and installed? Yikes, I'm still rocking a 20gb hdd.

I did some research on it. People say the Wii version can be played with Wiimote and Nunchuk or classic style RE4 with Gamecube. It has all the additions that were on PS2 but not GC. The graphics actually look better on Wii overall because the HD version did not upgrade the textures so you see the textures look blurry on RE4 HD.

I guess it went up to $60.80.

The only thing I'm missing from this set is Code Veronica HD.
I have the dreamcast version, but never played it. I probably still would have bit at $53 though.

RE4 is better on Wii because of the controls.
Wiimote + Nunchuck works fantastic. Almost flawlessly.

Why Move was not integrated into RE4 HD is beyond me.....
Missed a selling point right there....
