While many people dislike the game (I had a lot of fun with it) the RE: ORC SE for PS3 has been fairly hard to find while the 360 version was available at a reduced from ($40) from Amazon for quite some time.
The PS3 version of most games become rare (special editions or not). It's probably because it's on Blu-ray so people see it as more valuable than CD/DVD.
As for Operation Raccoon City, I played it co-op with a friend so it was much more enjoyable then if I had played solo. Watching a big Bio-weapon container land on my partner from the sky and insta-gib him was entertaining.
The main problem with the game was that it was just too short and outdated. If you previously played Resident Evil 2 (1998), then you'll get some of the nostalgia when you play thru ORC (2012). But that's just it, it feels more like a "behind the scenes" extras of an old movie re-released on Blu-ray.
I recall when RE2 was in development, they had a lot of ideas for what they wanted to originally put in the game (i.e. hordes of zombies coming after you, or busting through confined spaces) but a lot had to be scrapped because of the hardware (PS1) limitations. ORC seems like it had a lot of those ideas that they couldn't use at the time but not enough for an independent game, more like an expansion pack.
If anything the game should of been called, Resident Evil 2: Gaiden (side story). Adding Resident Evil 2 (redone in HD) along with ORC would of given it more length at least but that's probably asking for too much.
