Only Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition Will Support PlayStation Move

Capcom confirmed today that PlayStation 3 owners eager to revisit Resident Evil 5 with Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Move motion controller will only be able to do so if they own a copy of Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition.

The RE5 developer explained on their European site that it is impossible to add Move support to the original RE5, because the game was “in development for several years before PlayStation Move even existed as a concept for Sony,” and that, “Short of building a time machine, going back in time and recoding the game so we can patch control schemes on it in the future there is nothing we can do.”

However, when the time rolled around to release RE5GE, Capcom was able to add in code “to allow prototype Move to work” with the game, which Capcom then demoed during Tokyo Game Show 2009. And because this temp code was installed, Capcom will release a patch on September 14 that will add Move capabilities to the game.

Capcom will also be re-releasing the gold edition but with Move support included on the disc. The new gold edition will release on September 15, the day Move goes on sale.

Anyone out there own the original RE5 and planning to pick up Move? Do you think you’d throw to pick up the Move-enabled version?
