Don’t own the Gold edition of Resident Evil 5? Then no Move for you

It’s a scene out of your worst nightmares: Your grip rests secure on a shiny new PlayStation Move controller, and you’ve dusted off your faithful old copy of Resident Evil 5 to welcome your new piece of hardware to the family. But then, tragedy strikes. You flail your arms like someone engaged in a particularly vicious slap-fight, but Chris Redfield doesn’t budge an inch as he’s torn limb-from-limb.

Why, Chris? Why won’t you move? Have those giant tree-trunk arms of yours finally taken up root? Fortunately, no. Unfortunately, you may need to go grab a new copy of Resident Evil 5.

“If you already own a copy of Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition for your PS3, you’ll be able to download a free patch close to the launch of the PlayStation Move (September 19th in North America) to enable the new motion-control scheme. This will only work with RE5 copies labeled ‘Gold Edition’ — the original version of RE5 won’t be receiving the patch, for technical reasons,” social media specialist Sid Shuman wrote on the PS Blog.

After all, it’s like they say: the best things in life are free. Except when they’re not. Which is most of the time.
