$80 Devil May Cry 4 Collector's Edition Detailed

By Chris Faylor, Nov 05, 2007 8:53am PST Continuing the ever-popular trend of premium priced special edition cases and bonuses, Capcom will offer the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360-owning Devil May Cry faithful with a cornucopia of swag when the latest game in the series arrives on February 5.

Packaged within the metal case of the $79.99 Devil May Cry 4 Collector's Edition are the four episodes of Devil May Cry: The Animated Series Volume 1 and a bonus DVD with making-of content, soundtrack excerpts, a digital artbook, and PC screensavers, wallpapers, and icons. While the price is a bit steeper than the traditional $10 special edition premium, Capcom points out that the anime disc is a $29.99 value.

A standard edition of the game will be available on the two consoles on February 5 as well, priced at $59.99. Though none of the bonus content is platform exclusive, buyers of the eventual PC edition will not be privy the special edition treatment, likely due to the lower price point of the PC version.

  • I find it interesting to note that the collector's edition is actually TWICE as much as the PC version. I'm sorry, but a stupid anime isn't worth that. The artbook and Making of DVD sound cool, but PC gamers will get it wether they want us to or not.

    Jesus, I sound like a PC fanboy. I really do like the 360 and everything, but some of this stuff is getting rediculous. It used to be that 50 dollars got you a game, that's cool. Then they introduced the "collector's edition," and that was 60. Alright, 10 more bucks and I get some neat trinkets to show I'm a fan. Then games went up to 60, and these collector's editions went up to 70. Well, I now have to pay collector's edition prices for the regular game and I don't get the trinkets, but if I pay 20 dollars more than the PC counterpart i get the collector's edition. Well, the trinkets didn't improve, so I don't see why they can't make it 65 instead, but whatever, you still get the trinkets and it makes you seem like an even bigger fan, since fewer people will most likely have these. Now they're asking us to dish out literally TWICE as much as the PC counterpart? Well, it doesn't come with another game as the bonus, so what's the reasoning? This anime DVD? Isn't worth the plastic it's printed on. And beside that we have the normal collector's edtion fair. I'm just having trouble chalking this up to "Well, it's meant for the fans," because even the big fans of the game may not give two shits about the anime (like me). I'm just getting tired of everyone being so money hungry I guess, but the time to complain about that is long past.

    Oh well, I'll get the game and enjoy it, and all of this will be forgotten. Oh, I bet they're releasing it over Steam, too!
