Resident Evil 4 Remake Collectors Edition
The collector’s edition of the 2023 remake of Resident Evil 4. It includes a number of collectibles, the centerpiece being a figure of Leon S. Kennedy.
Capcom Resident Evil Showcase
A first look at the collector’s edition was shared during the October Resident Evil Showcase event.
Preorders Go Live On GameStop
In the United States the collectors edition was exclusively released via GameStop, with pre-orders going live just 1 hour after the showcase concluded. Xbox, PS4, and PS5 versions were available.
Preorders Sell Out Online
After sitting in stock for just under one day, the item listing page was pulled from GameStop.com, denoting that preorders had sold out.
In Store Preorders Available
Though sold out online quickly, customers were still able to preorder in person at their local GameStop stores up to 4+ days after the release. A $5 refundable deposit was required with this purchase method.
Fully Sold Out
Roughly one week after preorders went live via GameStop in the United States, all allocated stock (both in person and online) was confirmed to be sold out.
Confirmed Orders Resell for $450 on eBay
In the month following preorders selling out, it became apparent that restocks were unlikely. Series fans hoping to complete their statue collections (previous games in the series typically had collector’s editions with statues) that had missed out had no choice but to turn to eBay to secure a copy before launch.
