Pretty good deal. Why not arcade SF4 though?

It is good package for those games in together for fans and newcomers. I guess maybe other reason Capcom have to do it since some of their games released this year sales badly and didn't well so I bet Capcom try bring more attention for more players and newcomers in interest for their games.

I also hope Capcom doing well once Lost Planet 3 and Dead Rising 3 come out. I believe Capcom will back up once those 2 games come out or even just Dead Rising 3 help more then Lost Planet 3 did for sales. We have wait and see how well those games and for this publisher.

Should be SF4AE but I guess they want you to pay extra for that, which is also silly because the 2014 update isn't that far away..

Having said that, Dead Rising 2 should probably be Off The Record too. Still good deal all-in-all.

I would love a special edition steelbook of this which includes a few more games. For example Dragons Dogma.

Yeah most of these you can pick up cheaper individually, if Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen was on it then they could take my money flat out but otherwise don't really see as a great deal. The games that are marking it up like that would be SF possibly RE and that's about it at least from guessed prices on those.

They think RE6 is the best in the series? Sorry but 4 and 5 are better

@14 Capcom is probably trying to get rid of all the unsold copies of RE6.

RE6 I don't have yet, rest already have/played. I haven't checked around, but you probably could pick these up cheaper than this collection.

@16 lol, your probably right. I tried the demo and didn't care for it much.

This makes me think that DR2 and Crackdown won't be the August gold games. Why would they make DR2 free but charge for DR2 here? Maybe Capcom doesn't follow the news.

That sounds like a great collection... shame I already have 3 of the games already (Devil May Cry 4, Resident Evil 6, and Super Street Fighter IV [the AE edition]). Still, Capcom did well to make a collection outta them.

Seriously, Resident Evil 6 is an essential?

I love the RE series but I hated the demo for 6 and avoided it like the plague.

Devil May Cry 4: Boring and half-assed.
Resident Evil 6: Simply terrible.

Can't comment on the others.

Except it should read more like this: Devil May Cry 3, Dead Rising, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Resident Evil 2 and Mega Man 3. I'd buy that for 60 bucks.

And with dead rising 2 as one of the next free games with gold it makes this even more useless

-Devil May Cry 4 $20
-Dead Rising 2 $30
-Super Street Fighter 4 $20
-Resident Evil 6 $30
-Mega Man 10 $10 (Or 800msp)

So you save $50 by getting the bundle over the individual games.

That's assuming you are buying these games new, and at suggested retail price. If you look around and are a savvy shopper, you probably can get them all individually at a cheaper total, but at that point, isn't your time wasted trying to shop around ultimately the difference in the end?
