PlayStation Move Won't Work With Standard Edition Of Resident Evil 5

Sony has recently sent a reminder to avid Resident Evil fans that the upcoming Playstation Move controller will only work with the Gold Edition of Resident Evil 5 when it is released this Autumn. Sony's senior social media specialist, Sid Shuman had this to say on the matter:
"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 labelled "Gold Edition" - the original version of RE5 won't be receiving the patch, for technical reasons."
Fortunately all post-Move release copies of Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition will "come with PlayStation Move support included on the disc"

Now it seems that those ‘technical reasons’ have yet to be explained but if you want to use the Playstation Move when it is released with RE5, better get yourself the Gold Edition of the game if you have not already.
