Capcom gives Japanese guns

Not real ones. For RE pre-orders.

Capcom's hit upon a great way to convince Japanese people to buy Resident Evil 4 on the PlayStation 2: give them all guns.

Not real ones, obviously. The 1/5 scale models are made of metal though, and the suggestion on Capcom's e-shop is that you'll get Leon's handgun or another depending on the luck of the, er, draw.

The guns are available to Japanese gamers who pre-order the game ahead of its December 1st release. So if you live in Japan and... oh who are we kidding?

The real question, of course, is: is it as cool as the chainsaw? We saw one of those in a shop the other day. They're not enormous, but they do have blood on them. Which is the important thing.
