link - RE5 Gold @ Newegg

Before it comes up, this (the PS3 version) has all DLC on the disk, it's the 360 version that comes with download vouchers and the original disk. So go get it!

(if for some reason you hate Newegg, Amazon has it for 20.99 via Hitgaming fulfilled by Amazon)

Wonder why they don't lower the price on the 360 version as well...

Hmm, there are a couple of Newegg reviews that claim that when they ordered RE5 they received rewraps. It'll be interesting to see what's in the batch.

I don't think it was a rewrap. I think that RE5 Gold is one of the few titles that can actually come in shrinkwrap from the factory.

I just checked and scottman did some research on this back in January to confirm: http://www.cheapassg...25&postcount=43

Going to differ with scottman on that last observation:

edit: after checking bestbuy, all re5 gold have that style shrinkwrap. Newegg isn't selling any reseals.


The RE5 Gold I bought at Best Buy last month is folded wrapped, not shrink-wrapped.

16.99 is a good deal even if used, considering the DLC is on-disc for the PS3 version. Kinda deceptive I suppose if they are selling a rewrap as new like GS, but the bottom line is that this is a lot of bang for the buck at this price.

I really want this to play with the Move, but I just played through it on 360. I also just spent $21 on Gamefly sales. But with the DLC included, maybe I should just spring for it.

Is this move compatible?
Does Best buy PM with Newegg?

Yes, Move compatible.
Good luck with getting BB to PM Newegg. My BB won't PM any place they cannot see from the front door of their store.

I have seen many capcom games have both y folds and the shrink wrap across all retailers and just off the top of my head I have seen both version of RE Mercenaries 3DS, Revelations 3DS and RE5 Gold.

Although I have received other "New" games from Newegg that did look rewrapped that I had never seen sold that way as "new" from other retailers.

Because people randomly hate things. Some hate Amazon, some Best Buy, some Target, many Walmart, etc. That's what people do

Well, it heavily derails from the traditional feel of RE, and perhaps the old good times of RE will be gone forever to cater to the younger generation, but I wouldn't call this game horrible.

Thanks for the update; I ordered one with Free 2-Day Shipping courtesy of ShopRunner. ;) Now I can trade my vanilla copy in to GS.

Huh?, they went out of stock, and then back in stock a day later? Guess I'll try again before they disappear again. Let that be a lesson, always double check threads.
