Console-Specific Bonuses For RE5, Limited Edition Detailed

We have a special holiday greeting to all you die-hard fans of Resident Evil: it's all the goodies you can get if you're willing to pony up a little extra cash!

According to Andriasang.com, Capcom has revealed the full details for both the Limited Edition of the highly anticipated game and the announcement that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will each receive different bonuses. While 360 owners will receive what is known as the "Deluxe Edition" that features a special metal case and a soundtrack CD, PlayStation 3 owners will get a making-of video segment included on the game disc. Capcom says this isn't your run-of-the-mill behind-the-scenes feature, either; it's produced by "Hollywood staff" and it's supposedly the "world's first PS3 game software/Blu-Ray video hybrid." The 360 bonuses may disappear when Capcom reverts to a standard definition, though, and presumably, that making-of video will always be included with all PS3 versions of the game.

Now, that's all well and good, but the fans want something more, don't you? Well, how's about that excellent Limited Edition, which features a 2 gig USB memory card shaped like a particular item from the game, a 32-page color art book, and a waist pouch also designed like some item. This will be available for both the PS3 and 360. Capcom is always good about taking care of their loyal followers, aren't they?

Lightshow is correct. Hard-boiled was not in high definition though it was technically an movie/game combo... But I believe that this is going to be a blu-ray game/blu-ray movie which begs the question "how much space did this take up?"

Hope the basket they are putting all these eggs in is worth it, but I think I'll be sticking to the $60 release. RE rules but I don't wanna pay high class hooker prices for it.

I think youre wrong Ben. If both of these are limited editions why would the ps3 "making of" be included in all versions. LIMITED EDITION. Its not gonna be around long and its not gonna come on the game its gonna come with it. Like how MGS4 did it. Please correct yourself.

Learn how to read. The Limited Edition is a separate deal; the 360 gets a "Deluxe" version that will likely revert to standard while the PS3 version gets that making-of bonus in the game. It's NOT a "Deluxe" version.

Last chance to curb your thinly veiled 360 fanboy nonsense. I'm getting sick of you.

Edit: Actually, after re-reading your posts, you're gone now. Bye.

I'm guessing that was "bleck". Big surprise. Tell me something, Ben. Why is it that xbots mostly tend to be a**holes, too? Am I wrong? Could it be that on a 360 site somewhere, there are Sony counterparts of these guys? Really, I could care less whether someone thinks the 360 is the holy arc, and that Sony sponsors terrorism, but why is it that they, xbots, always happen to be a**holish as well?

I believe the a**holish-ness is a symptom of the "elite-gamer" fever that befalls some of our unlucky brethren.

If you have skill or knowledge of a game that is superior to others, you should be content with that knowledge. If you feel the need to brag or laud your "game" over others than more than likely you're not as good as you think and as an added bonus, you're a dick.

Same goes for people who (like the deleted above) don't know the difference between a polite question and a verbal attack. If the user had edited his hostile statement to propose an honest question I feel he would have been met with an honest clarifying answer. Rather he came off as an aggressive prick and as it seemed to be in line with his previous posts, he got the boot.

If you're walking on thin ice, don't put out so much hot air.

(Sorry 'bout the rant, at work and would rather be playing at home, just letting off steam.)

Yeah I would like to know the price of this too you know is it going to be the standard 69.99 or 79.99 price point? And do you think they are going to send one hundred billion to every best buy in the world like they tend to do with all collector's editions? If so I will wait to hear people's impressions on the extra content being worth it or not but if they are not going to go overboard at best buys then I may pre-order it and then cancel or buy depending.

Wait, I'm confused, will the ps3 version be in a metal case? or do we just get the "making of" video?

Ok what do you do if you have both Systems (without starting a fanboy war) which is the best deal if you have both systems ?

Ok guys that only have one system, learn to deal with you not having the one machine or the other.

I for one am sick of this my machines better than yours crapola cos we got such and such a sweet deal with my machine getting this and yours didn't. If your that bothered either save up and buy the other(s) machine(s) etc or share with your friends it's what I did until I was able to get both 360 and PS3 granted in the reverse order but hey I own both machines now (and please note I am not bragging etc) ok some people can't afford both machines, and I am damn proud to say I own both. Once again it is down to opinion at the end of the day.

If my mate has a PS3 and I have a 360 or vice versa does that mean I can't no longer have a beer with him ? Hell no, you use that machine with ya buddy one night, then invite him round to your house to play something else on your machine the next night etc etc. :) at the end of the day we buy the games, we dictate, if we didn't buy the games, then the programmers would be out of a job, the reviewers would be out of a job, plus we would end up not meeting so many cool friends online via online game play, (I have met a few cool friends from offline in the real world and I am proud to have met and had a few beers with them in the flesh) :)

Peace Out :)

P.S I'll be buying the PS3 version (lol only kidding before you all get your knickers in a twist) I was joking I will wait and see and decide.

Hey I've been reading around and a couple articles on different sites say that the extra stuff like the flash drive and the bag are exclusive to Japan? Do you think it's true? I'm sure if it is that they'll offer it here as well.

Here's one of the articles.

WIth the PS3 version your going to get the exclusive blu-ray movie making-of on the disc. With the 360 you'll get the soundtrack on cd and the metal case but you won't be able to get the bonus making-of. If you buy the PS3 version surely Capcom could release the soundtrack on cd separately at a later date. SO you can have everything that the 360 version has besides the metal case.
