The typical $60 price tag for most high-end console games is a ceiling that's unlikely to break anytime soon, but like most other mediums, game makers have found incremental cash-making opportunities in limited-run "Collector's Editions" targeted at their most fervent fans.

The latest from Resident Evil maker Capcom, though, is pretty staggering: a ¥105,000 bundle (approximately $1,300) that comes with some Evil goodies.

Kotaku reports that the eagerly awaited Resident Evil 6 "Premium Edition" will include a copy of the game, four branded tablet covers of the game series' famous characters (Chris, Leon, Jake, and one yet to be revealed), and a leather jacket modeled on protagonist Leon's iconic look.  The jacket comes in S, M, L, and XL.

While special editions are commonplace for major franchises, the typical premium for those bearing extra tchotchkes is $150-200 or so.  Of course, they rarely include high-end clothing and instead favor custom painted statuettes, artwork books, and in-game virtual goods.

Resident Evil 6: Premium Edition is currently only available direct from Capcom Japan. The game is slated to ship in October.
