Limited Edition: Code: Veronica Dreamcast Bundle
If I’m not mistaken, the Dreamcast has the most special editions and variations of any home console. Up there in rarity along with the Maziora Dreamcast and the Seaman Christmas Dreamcast is the Biohazard Code: Veronica Claire Edition, which included a transparent blood red system, a matching controller, a gray VMU with the game’s logo, a special metallic card inside a fancy case, and of course, the limited edition of the game itself. This console was limited to 1,800 pieces and goes for between $740 and $1,000, depending on how many pieces of the bundle are included and their condition.
Sega and Capcom also released a S.T.A.R.S. edition, which was a transparent dark blue and featured a S.T.A.R.S. logo. The Claire version is way sexier, though the S.T.A.R.S. one was much more limited, as only 200 were produced.

Before Claire Redfield, Elza Walker Was Resident Evil 2's Female Star

Prior to the Resident Evil 2 that we all know and love, Capcom had all but finished a completely different version of the game before scrapping it and starting over. That unfinished version has come to be known as Resident Evil 1.5.

Not much is known about Elza Walker aside from the facts that she likes motorcycles and attended Raccoon City University (sidenoted: Raccoon City University should totally be the next game in the RE franchise). Just like Claire Redfied, Elza’s support character was Sherry, but she also had another support character: Robert Kendo - the owner of the gun shop at the very beginning of RE2!

Taking a look at the concept art above, it’s easy to see how Elza’s design slowly changed into Claire Redfield. It even looks like they just reskinned her character model for the final game.

Check 10 minutes of footage from Resident Evil 1.5 below. Watching it feels like witnessing something from the alternate universe in Fringe.

While the police station looks completely different, it looks like most of the Umbrella lab stuff made it to the final version of the game. I wonder what happened to those zombie gorillas and mutant spider men though.

Yesterday Kotaku reported on a group of fans who somehow obtained the game’s code and are working on a playable build which you can check out a video of below.

With all the hype around HD re-releases, there could actually be a market for unreleased beta games like this. I can honestly say I’d pay around $40 for a copy of RE 1.5 that I could play on my PS3 or Vita, and there’s plenty of fans out there who would say the same. I just wonder if it would even be worth the effort for Capcom to polish the game off for digital retail.

Think about it, Capcom. Think about it.

Resident Evil Themed Butcher Shop Sells Severed Human Body Parts. Yes, Even Wieners.

Of course, they’re not real body parts, just regular ol’ slabs of dead animal made to look like the good stuff. I mean… ¬_¬

Capcom is currently sponsoring a little pop-up art gallery/butcher shop at the Smithfield Meat Market in East London to promote the launch of Resident Evil 6/make people throw up/hungry. It’s called Wesker & Son Wholesale Meats after characters from the game. Clever.

You can also buy sausages shaped like dicks. They even come in Caucasian and blizzack modes, so that’s cool I guess.

The money raised will go to the UK’s Limbless Association to help amputees. Kind of a jerk move in a back-handed sort of way. Like some guy at Capcom’s marketing department was like, “Hey, you guys know what’d be really funny in an ironic kinda’ way?”

Still, though. I wonder what those schlongs taste like.

New Resident Evil 6 Demo Dropping September 18
Capcom has officially announced a new demo for RE6 coming later this month.

Players will be able to dive into content from Resident Evil 6’s three main campaigns, either solo or partnering up via online co-op, and experience firsthand why it is one of this year’s most hotly anticipated titles.
Play as either Leon S. Kennedy or Helena Harper and further explore the dark corridors and moonlit grounds of Ivy University, swarming with the victims of the latest bioterrorist attack.
The action in Jake’s mission switches to the neon-lit streets of Lanshiang as he and Sherry Berkin fight off the J’avo, including their fully mutated forms. Be sure to check out Jake’s special hand-to- hand combat moves and Sherry’s stun baton as you struggle to stay alive.
Showcasing Resident Evil 6’s global setting, Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans head with fellow BSAA team members to the war-ravaged streets of Edonia. The amassed J’avo forces provide a stiff enough challenge, but that’s before the 3-story high B.O.W. Ogroman crashes the party. Select Piers for a slightly different weapons loadout than Chris including a sniper rifle with thermal scope.

This demo will be completely different from the exclusive Xbox 360 demo that came with Dragon’s Dogma. Speaking of which, that demo won’t be so exclusive for long. PS3 owners who own a copy of Dragon’s Dogma will be able to download it from the PlayStation Store via token redemption starting September 5.
Resident Evil 6 will release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 across Europe and North America on October 2. A PC version will follow soon.

Sega, Capcom, And Namco Bandai Stars Collide In Project X Zone.

Project X Zone is a an upcoming strategy RPG for 3DS featuring a whopping buttload of some of gaming’s greatest characters. Characters in the game come from Super Robot Wars: Original Generations, Tekken, Xenosaga, Tales of Vesperia, .hack, Street Fighter, Mega Man X, Darkstalkers, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Sakura Wars, Virtua Fighter, Space Channel 5, and Shining Force EXA. That’s a LOT of games.

These are the first screens of the combat system, so I’m pretty curious to see how it plays. I really would’ve been fine with a Smash Bros. style brawler, but whatevs.

Too bad the title is super similar to a douchey frat movie.

$1,300 Resident Evil 6 “Premium Edition” Is Just Bananas.

Capcom, always down for absorbing sums of money, big or small, have truly outdone themselves this time. The Japanese “Premium Edition” of RE6 comes with 4 different tablet covers, a copy of the game, and a replica of Leon’s snazzy leather jacket in your choice of small, medium, large, or extra large. All for ¥105,000 or US $1,293.

I mean, it’s a nice jacket and all, but damn! $1,300? Really?

One Kotaku reader cleverly commented:

No worries, gang. Capcom will release DLC for the jacket that should’ve been included in the first place. DLC has already been listed as things like: The zipper, an additional ability to add a row of snaps instead of the zipper, an American Flag tattoo (Guile reference,) and let’s not forget the entire left arm of the jacket can be “unlocked” after paying an additional $300 for the Day 1 DLC.

Speaking of DLC, if I’m going to pay over $1,000 for a game, that shit better get me a free pass to every piece of DLC for that game for the rest of time.
