As you no doubt heard already, Resident Evil 5 is getting re-released for the PlayStation 3. It’s going to be called Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition and is set to have some new content and will support the new Motion Controller from Sony. So it’s basically going to be Resident Evil 4 for the Wii, but in HD.
The video (click the image above) shows off the new motion controlled Resident Evil 5 from yesterday’s press event and holy crap does that controller setup look dumb. It’s great that you don’t have to buy an extra controller, but using the Dual Shock 3 with the Motion Controller looks so unpleasant. Hopefully Sony has something planned for an alternative controller to go with the Motion Controller.
