Yes! We ge RE5 Gold!

 

I knew I read Morgan's hints correctly this time.

 

Like Borderlands, it looks like we are getting some of the EU's releases a month later....

This is great. I plat'd the original RE5, but didn't get to experience any of the extra content in the Gold edition, which there seems to be quite a bit of judging by the trailer posted on the PS Blog.

I think you meant to say you "read Morgan's bluff." Kinda think we were supposed to get this a few weeks ago but they postponed it due to us finding out about it through the PS Store videos.

So I guess this means we can’t believe anything Morgan says.

I also platinumed RE5 but never got the Gold edition (if it was just DLC I probably would have).  So I'm not too disappointed in this being one of the free games.  I'll probably get the Portal 2 DLC and maybe the Vikings game; I heard good comments about it, but have barely looked into it.

No I ment a clue. In the PS Blog (two weeks ago) someone expressed dissapointment that RE5 wasn't coming that week, and Morgan responded "Don't lose hope!", which suggested to me that it was coming soon. Why else would he state that?

 

He also stated today that he was caught by surprise about RE5, so I believe he got word about it at least 2 weeks ago, but earlier that month his sources indicated that the US would be getting RE5.

 

The next clue Morgan stated today, was that next week's game is going to be a "puzzler". My guess is that it will be Electrochome...

As unexciting as it will be to have yet another previously owned freebie, the clue for the puzzler has me thinking that it might be Quantum Conundrum. Provided that most freebies of late have already been out for a year or more however, echochrome could probably be a safe bet all the same.

I read that post but I didn't see how "Don't lose hope!" was more convincing than him saying the PS Store video was for the European Plus with "$" signs. His responses after that made things even more obvious.

Because he responed in a manner that didn't confirm or deny regarding RE5. Recently when he was asked about RDR, he stated specifically that wasn't on the roadmap and not to expect it any time soon. With RE5 (a few weeks ago), he didn't do that, which suggested to me it was coming...
