Resident Evil 4 PS5 PS4 PlayStation

The recently revealed (yesterday) Resident Evil 4 Gold Edition is getting a physical release for collectors, but apparently, this boxed version will only be available in Europe, releasing in March. Considering the game takes place in rural Spain, this makes sense, but ignoring the world's largest economy seems strange.

IGN got confirmation from a Capcom spokesperson that RE4 Gold Edition will remain a digital-only title in the U.S. when it releases on 9th February on PS5 and PS4: the offering bundles together the base game, expansion Separate Ways, and a bonus DLC pack. Like Remedy's Alan Wake 2, Capcom is the latest publisher to opt for the digital option for a major release, getting on board the $70 bandwagon with the upcoming Dragon's Dogma 2, rumoured to run at 30 frames-per-second on PS5 and confirmed to use a single save slot.

What do you think of Capcom's decision to release Resident Evil 4 Gold physically in Europe? Will you attempt to circumvent this apparent American embargo? Let us know in the comments section below.
