Updated / Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition to get PlayStation Move patch

Update: Capcom explains why it’s Resi 5 Gold only.

Original story: If there’s anything The House of the Dead series taught us, it’s that having to physically aim a gun at a zombie is a labor anyone can love. Lucky for us, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition will be following suit, as a recent posting on a PlayStation blog promised that RE 5: Gold will be getting a patch for PlayStation Move compatibility.

Unfortunately, it looks like the original version of RE 5 won’t be getting the same treatment.

“This will only work with RE 5 copies labeled ‘Gold Edition’ — the original version of RE 5 won’t be receiving the patch, for technical reasons,” says Sid Shuman, senior social media specialist at PlayStation. Shuman goes on to promise that the patch will become available on PSN “close to the launch of the PlayStation Move.”

The blog post also mentions that all retail versions of RE 5: Gold Edition will come with the patch on-disc after the Move is released.

Expect to see the Move-enabled RE 5: Gold Edition around the release date of the PS Move, which is September 15th and 19th for Europe and the US, respectively.
