You would own the content regardless. All the 360 version gives you as far as the DLC goes is a free token to download it.

The Gold Edition is fucking retarded. The original game retails now for 30 dollars. The new content all costs 14 dollars. Why would you pay an extra 6 bucks for the Gold Edition?

I would only buy the Gold Edition if I happened to have some store credit lying around that wasn't really aimed towards any specific game.


Actually it has the vs. mode also so it's $19 MSRP worth of DLC.

The big thing on the Gold edition for PS3 owners is that they can get it all on 1 disc if they haven't bought the game yet. For us 360 owners, it's best just to get RE 5 cheap (I got it for $12 shipped from Gamefly) then buy whatever DLC you want a la carte.

Hope. Not if it's on Live Arcade.

Dang, that sucks if the 360 one doesn't include a second disc :-/ In fact, it might be false advertising...except I'm sure it tells you in small print somewhere on the box :lol:

How is the versus content for RE5 anyway? Only DLC for RE5 I haven't bought yet. Worth it?

Finally finished the DLC for this over the weekend. Lost In Nightmares was a lot of fun. Desperate Escape was alright, but I was ready to punch a kitten trying to finish it on Professional. Thank God that's over with.

Ah well shit the bed then. I didn't know it came with Vs.

And I can understand the PS3 version, although what exactly is the benefit to it being on one disc as opposed to having it on DLC?

You own it, plus you don't have to provide the storage space for it.

Compared to the PS3, the owning sense is different, but if we're talking just 360, they're the exact same in that regard.

The one with both story DLCs and the new costume pack for $12 plus the $5 versus DLC (I'd recommend this if you want all achievements only, its not fun) is a $17 bundle, I'm not sure if there is any other DLC, maybe an earlier costume pack?

It's only $5, so I won't say it isn't worth it, but it's not that good. There are two modes. Slayers can be fun. It's basically competitive Mercenaries. You can shoot the other players, but for the most part, I find folks go by the gentleman's agreement that if you don't shoot me, I won't shoot you. Survivors, on the other hand, is just like a standard DM/TDM, and that's just...ugh. Imagine trying to shoot a non-AI with Resident Evil controls. Sound fun? Didn't think so.

I think I'll try to find a used copy of RE5 and then just download the extra content later on.
Unless if the costumes actually do something to affect gameplay, they don't seem worth paying for to me short of a sale online.

so is desperate escape worth the $5 to download it?

I did enjoy the more action packed levels of RE5 but I'd like to know what level(s) it compares to in terms of replay value and length to complete


Eh, kinda. It was okay but it's essentially a mercenaries level without a timer. Probably an hour and a half to two hours long on Professional your first time through. That's only because of difficulty though. Play on easy and it will likely be less than thirty minutes.

I would since I'm already on your FL but I really don't want to have to play through them again ;)

Already played through both of them around 3-4 times each when they first came out.
