Most studios, even Sony Pictures, have given up on releasing UMD movies. This already makes Resident Evil Degeneration unique because Sony will release a slightly cheaper UMD version in Japan on December 17. Resident Evil Degeneration on UMD goes for 3,990 yen ($40) while the collector’s edition DVD runs for 4,980 yen ($51).
You know what else Resident Evil Degeneration has? Two language tracks: English and Japanese. Even in Japan Resident Evil games usually have English voice acting so if you want to hear Leon speak Japanese here you go. Collectors might also want to look out for the limited edition Blu-ray box set with the figure above. It’s limited to 5,000 pieces and usually goes for 12,800 yen ($129). Since the Americas and Japan are in the same Blu-ray region the Japanese release will play on a US PlayStation 3 without any fussing around.
