Previously exclusive to GAME stores, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition is to be re-released at the budget price of £19.99, just in time for the release of Sony’s new motion-control peripheral PlayStation Move, and will be available from all major retailers.
Last month’s news that the original version of the game wouldn’t be compatible with Move due to technical constraints was met with worldwide discord from within the dedicated fan-base. Developers Capcom clarified the situation, explaining that a memory reserve issue rectified in the Gold Edition cannot be altered in previous versions.
Previews of Move gameplay in Resident Evil 5 have been extremely positive and will hopefully give the best-selling bio-weapon slaughter-fest a new lease of life on PlayStation 3. The Gold Edition not only features Move capability, it also comes packed with all the new missions, outfits and other extras released as downloadable content earlier this year.
Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition will be re-released in the UK for PlayStation 3 on September 10th, with PlayStation Move following on September 15th. Current owners of Gold Edition can expect a Move patch on the same day.
