Last month, Capcom announced console-specific special editions for Resident Evil 6 featuring digital download copies of older titles alongside the series’ latest chapter. Today we received the official box art showing exactly what these unique compilations have to offer for $89.99 each.

Resident Evil 6 Anthology for PlayStation 3 includes PlayStation Network vouchers for the five main series installments leading up to part six, including Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil 4 HD, and Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition.

Resident Evil 6 Archives for Xbox 360, on the other hand, is lighter on the games, only offering XBLA copies of Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD, Resident Evil 4 HD, and Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition. To make up for the lack of the original three titles, the Archives edition comes with the Resident Evil Degeneration movie on DVD. Also notice that the Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 6 takes up two discs. Must be a big game!

In other RE6 news today, the game’s playable demo in now available via Xbox Live exclusively for Xbox 360 players who bought Dragon’s Dogma. The demo offers three missions, one from each of the game’s campaigns:

Play as Leon S. Kennedy alongside Helena Harper and explore the dark confines of the Ivy University campus and the zombies that fill its hallways. Select Chris Redfield’s mission and head to China for an intense encounter against the deadly J’avo with BSAA colleague Piers Nivans on the rooftops of Lanshiang. The third mission shifts the action to the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and sees Jake Muller and Sherry Berkin trying to escape the relentless pursuit of the Ustanak, one of the new B.O.W.’s being introduced in Resident Evil 6.

Capcom has not yet announced when the demo will be widely available to all Xbox Live and PlayStation Network users.
