Expect to pay $39.99 for the whole set, which is pretty good considering the games' timeline runs from groundbreaking early work on the PS2 all the way to the Special Edition of Devil May Cry 3. There'll be Achievements, Trophies and bonus extras to uncover within the HD revisions of the games' original trilogy, which ought to keep players busy while formulating a preemptive opinion on Ninja Theory's reboot.
