will hit retail, combining all of the aforementioned DLC (on the PS3 disc; through vouchers in Xbox 360 copies) with the original game for $50; a not-so discounted bundle for anyone who hasn't picked up the original RE5
(now $30), which was released last March
. So, if you're not too interested in piloting air ships and wranglin' chocobos that week
