The Official PlayStation Blog reports that come the launch of PlayStation Move in September, a free patch will be available to download for Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, implementing all-new motion controls.

Moving forward, all new Gold Edition versions of Resident Evil 5 that hit store shelves after the launch of PlayStation Move will come with PlayStation Move support included on the disc.

However, it's bad news for gamers with the original Resident Evil 5 release; PlayStation Move functionality won't be patched into the game because of unspecified "technical reasons".

PS Move is scheduled for release across Europe on September 15, 2010.

I have original Resi5 and paid for the DLC,so it's a bit annoying.At least games can be patched with Move or have it added part of the way through development.It also means it may breathe life into a few more current gen but older games,and that's good for devs.

wel i suppose it would be cheap to get but im still pissed at Sony for not patching the original wether or not it is due to tech reasons.

That sucks quite a bit, but motion control did wonders for Resident Evil 4 on Wii. If they manage to implement it as well here, I don't think anyone will miss the normal controls. I might actually consider playing RE5 properly if Move makes it less of a pain in the arse to play.
