And for those who prefer a boxed copy...

... please find your DLC vouchers inside the box.

Seriously, i actually laughed (and then cried a little) when i found this out. Resident Evil 5 is getting a Gold edition which sounds pretty cool and i was thinking of buying it because it was a "boxed version" of all the content plus the announced DLC. Well it turns out that this is only the case for the PS3 version, the Xbox 360 version has the RE5 disc plus a voucher to get the DLC - which means that it's not on the disc and thus will be tied to your 360 HDD and the network availability (which is my reason for having them on a disc in the first place) if your HDD ever dies or you want to move it across to a new HDD.

For those RESIDENT EVIL fans who prefer a box copy, we are also happy to report that we will be releasing a RESIDENT EVIL 5: GOLD EDITION that will include the original game plus all additional content, making this the ultimate RESIDENT EVIL5 experience. RESIDENT EVIL 5: GOLD EDITION will be available for $49.99 as a single Blu-ray disc for the PLAYSTATION 3 or as a DVD with a token for the downloadable content for XBOX 360.

Well, unless this gets changed i won't be buying a copy. Ah, well... i still haven't played RE1-4 either.
