Sony’s Limited Edition Resident Evil 5 PS3

Sony isn’t going to be left out of the Resident Evil 5 bundle club. The same day Microsoft’s Xbox 360 package hits stores Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will be ready with a Resident Evil 5 bundle of their own.


You don’t get any extra goodies in this package just an 80GB PlayStation 3, two Dualshock 3 controllers, and Biohazard 5 for 48,980 yen ($525). Not the limited edition version of Biohazard 5 with a soundtrack CD, just the vanilla game. The console itself is the special item since it’s designed with a Biohazard logo and the words “Biohazard” over the disc slot. No word on how limited this is, but it doesn’t look nearly as good as Sega’s Rising Dragon PS3 which comes out a week earlier.

  • It’s tough to decide from this pic but I think the PS3 itself needed to be a silver, or perhaps the logo should have been a different color.

    The 360 bundle has a headset and soundtrack but I’d rather just have the bundle come with a 2nd controller like the PS3 one for the co-op.

    “… but it doesn’t look nearly as good as Sega’s Rising Dragon PS3.” —
    That’s your personal taste. I, as somebody, who likes decent style, definitively prefer the Limited Edition Resident Evil 5 PS3.

  • Oh, there we go. I just commented in the 360 bundle post earlier today that it was weird for Sony to not have a PS3/RE5 bundle considering the Devil May Cry one worked out well.

    Biohazard has such a strong logotype that I’m surprised they didn’t just paint it in silver or something on top of the unit.

    That trio of pentagons seems almost irrelevant in comparison — but I’m not familiar with the series, so maybe it’s something significant that I’ve just never seen.

  • Douglas

    I think it’s the Umbrella Corpuration logo that’s on the PS3.

  • R

    @Douglas: I initially thought it might be something Umbrella related, but that doesn’t look like their old logo…or even very much like an umbrella. Who knows, though — maybe they got a corporate makeover for RE 5…

  • Chow

    Wasn’t the Umbrella logo a complete hexagon made up with triangles? It’s probably Wesker’s new company (if he even has one at this point, I forget).

    But something doesn’t seem right with this LE system. The colors are not contrasted enough between each other. Though, in a way it does look pretty nice in its subtlety. Bundling the normal edition of the game reminds me of what I had to do with my MGS4 80GB Bundle & LE MGS4 package (ie get them both).
