Good deal for those who never got Volume 1 when it came back in 2005. Volume 1 fetches anywhere from $40-100 on ebay. Just sold mine to get this. Includes Volume 1 and Volume 2. Supposed to be released October 18th.

totally excited for this, thank!

I wonder if it will just be a collection, or if they will actually do some editing of the content...

Yea i own both volumes - guess i'll try to get rid of the first one now while i still can. (Darn, should have taken the $100ish trade in way back when). Hopefully it does release soon - i see comments on Amazon that has it set to deliver by today for other people. Last collection of books I ordered from Amazon went from being one week away to jumping 6 months into the future...

Hmm... I'd like a hardcover, but no options. I guess I can pre-order now and cancel later. Thanks OP.

So this is essentially background about the games and an artbook? I'm interested.

They were paperback. I'm so glad I sold two of mine to amazon last year for $100+ each.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Whoa! I've had Resident Evil Archives 1 for years and years, didn't even know it was worth that much.

I sold a copy of volume 1 for nearly $200 earlier this year. Never understood why it was worth so much. Glad others will have a chance to acquire it at a much more reasonable price.

hmm... I still have Vol 1 in great condition..... Do you think they fixed that "Biohazard" error throughout Vol 1?

I have seen this at my local GS for a long time now. I think it was archives II though. I guess it's Archives I that is the higher valued one. This is a good deal considering Archives II goes for $30 at GS right now.

UGH! I got Vol 2 already, but I really want Vol 1. I am rather annoyed by this. If they made an option for me to get just Vol 1 I so would.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Sorry never bought the old one

But is this like a info/ art book for the whole RE series?

And this is volume 1-2 right? Complete?

Yes, well up till RE5, because Volume 2 came out late last year. Think of it as a Resident Evil Encyclopedia. Volume one was made in 2005 and went oop pretty fast.

I found out about this set in the back of the RE6 LE Guide. Was going to buy vol 2, but now that I just sold my first print this bundle will be free plus the extra money I made :)

I thought this was going to be a collection of video games, since I never bought/played RE games until 4.

A little disappointed. Please denote that it's a book next time.

The first one is valuable??!?!

Holy crap, I own it. Guess I'll try to sell it, although it is a pretty cool book (I love the RE series).

How limited do you think this reprint will be? I really can't afford it at the moment but would love to get it at a later time.

I'm a fan of the lore of Resident Evil, though I really only played 2. I have always been interested in the characters and such, even if I never gave the new games a chance. Wondering if I could appreciate a product like this.

Well Volume 2 has been in print since December of last year. I would think a decent amount of time.

F***! I had no idea volume 1 was so valueable. I bought it from Barnes and Nobles way back, left it in the plastic bag and boxed it. Damnit.
