I hate it when they make you download extra content for all these 'game of the year' or 'special editions', I like it better when it's on the game disc it self, not a second disc the game disc. That's one of the things I really like about Blu-ray disc, you can fit so much on them. I would consider getting the 'gold edition' if ALL is indeed on the BD it self, other wise I'll buy a cheep used disc of the original RE5 and download the DLC.
But as for real facts like you asked, no, I don't have clue :)
Both systems will have DLC available for those who already own the original Resident Evil 5. The Gold edition on PS3 will include all of the DLC on the Disc. The Gold edition on XB360 will be the standard Resident Evil 5 with vouchers to download the DLC from Live.
Kewl!! I have a bud at Gamestop,and he told me about the Gold edition and begged me to reserve it (commission for him,I guess..).If I don't have to buy it to get the extras, I'll just keep the original version that I already have and download em from Xbox Live.... If u don't already have it,it would be worth it to wait 4 gold.
Original RE5 for PS3 on Amazon.com = $28.99 Versus Mode = $4.99 Lost in Nightmares + Mercernaries Reunion with 2 New Characters Barry & Excela = $4.99 2 Alternate Costumes (Warrior Chris, Folklore Sheva) = $1.99 Desperate Escape + maybe it'll include Rebecca + Josh for Mercernaries Reunion = $4.99 2 Alternate Costumes (Heavy Metal Chris, Business Sheva) = $1.99
Grand Total = $47.94 Gold Edition Preorder price = $46.99
If you already own RE5, just buy the DLC instead. I doubt I will be playing versus mode anyway.
I have the original RE5, but I'm planning on trading it in for the Gold Edition. Like some other posters have mentioned I much prefer having a physical copy of something I own... and perhaps I'm just crazy but there's no guarantee that the new content will be available for download forever. What happens when there is no XBox Live or PSN? I realize that's a long shot and may or may not happen, but at least if it does I would still have all the content already on disc.
Guys to be honest, I know that having a physical copy of the dlc is better, some people are saying they do not want it on their HD. Practically, many ps3's require hard drive installs before playing... sooooo... For those who want to make extra space in their hard drives are not doing practically anything since reviewers say it installs 6 gbs. If you have the game, just download the dlc, you will be paying only for the cover
If I already have a Resident Evil 5 on ps3 and I just want the desperate escape and lost in nightmare content and all other extra features on the gold, how can i download it? and where do i download it from? Can someone please help. thanks a lot.
