Resident Evil 5 Collector’s Editions Around The World

By Spencer . February 19, 2009 . 10:45am

In less than a month Capcom’s next mega release will be in stores worldwide. A hotly anticipated game like Resident Evil 5 is bound to have a limited edition version, but this game is a special case. Capcom has no less than five Resident Evil 5 limited edition bundles. Each version comes with different stuff and is sold for a different price.


Let’s take a look at the packages starting with what we’re getting here.



North America and Australia – Chris Redfield figure, BSAA Patch, Kijuju necklace, Tricell messenger bag, bonus disc with making of movie/digital art gallery, and Resident Evil 5 in a steelbook case for $89.99. If you pre-order at GameCrazy you get a bonus sand globe. Australia gets the same bundle for $169.95 AUD ($110).



Europe – Bonus disc with making-of movie and Resident Evil 5 in a steelbook case for £49.99 ($71.50)



Japan – BSAA waist pouch, art book, Anti-Virus vaccine 2GB flash drive, and of course Resident Evil 5. The PlayStation 3 version comes on a hybrid game/movie Blu-ray disc with the making-of feature. The Xbox 360 release is bundled with the soundtrack. Both cost 12,800 yen ($136).



Korea – Resident Evil Degeneration movie, soundtrack CD, art book, and Resident Evil 5 in regular packaging. Price has not been announced.



Hong Kong – Making of game DVDs, bloody chainsaw 2GB USB flash drive, and Resident Evil 5 with a reversible cover (Biohazard or Resident Evil 5) for $498 HKD ($64).



The chainsaw USB drive is about the size of a credit card. You pull off the blade and plug it into your PC to use it.


Which one do you covet? Who has it the worst?  Sorry, Europe.

    Any way to get just the flash drive?

    Korea got it best. Artbook!!! And Degeneration as a bonus is pretty cool too.

      Definitely. I’d much rather have a soundtrack and artbook than a bag and a necklace of Africa :(

    Korea got the best one followed by Japan.

    My favorite is the Jpn version w/ the Tricell flash drive. The US Tricell messenger bag is cool, but I don’t like the Kijuju steel case, very unsettling.

  • As far a nic-knacks go, the U.S. has a healthy set. Korea has the core set, but I really like Hong Kong’s set, if just for the chainsaw.

    Wow Europe got owned again!


      Yeah, Europe definitely got the shaft.

    I like the Korean CE the most for having a soundtrack and an artbook, the only significant setback I see with it would be that people who already own Degeneration would be stuck with another copy. I also find the Hong Kong CE to be very interesting, I personally like its flash drive much more than the Japanese one, and I wonder just what more they have on those 3 “making of” DVDs.

    Oddly, it looks like the Korean CE would have been the one better off with a reversible cover considering it’s Biohazard 5 coupled with Resident Evil Degeneration.
