PlayStation Move bundled with Resident Evil 5 in Japan

Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition
Given all the release announcements, new games and other such hullabaloo that's recently surrounded the PlayStation Move, we wouldn't be surprised if you've forgotten about one of the earliest titles known to support the ice cream cone-shaped peripheral: Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition. Perhaps this will jog your memory: Sony Japan recently announced that the game will be bundled with the Move controller and PlayStation Eye, a package which will sell for 7,980 yen (about $90).

Sadly, zero gamers will be purchasing this particular bundle, as Sony Japan also announced the "PlayStation Move BIG 3 GUN SHOOTING Perfect Pack," a commanding package which includes Time Crisis: Razing Storm, Dead Storm Pirates and Time Crisis 4: Arcade Version. Of course, this bundle costs 11,980 yen (about $136) and features three games that, even when combined, aren't as good as RE5 -- but still! It's the BIG 3 GUN SHOOTING Perfect Pack. How are we supposed to say no to that?
