Capcom Says Leaked Resident Evil 6 Copies Were Stolen
You may remember last week's story concerning the leaked RE6 copies in Poland.
Well, they weren't just leaked; they were stolen and sold. According to what publisher Capcom told Eurogamer, the copies that got plenty of attention on the Internet a month before the official launch weren't a result of a broken street date.
"Capcom is currently undertaking a thorough investigation into reports that Resident Evil 6 is being sold ahead of its official October 2 release date. At this time, all we can add is that it would appear this unfortunate incident is limited to a small quantity of stolen copies of the German USK PlayStation 3 version of the game."
Only one or two shops were apparently selling these stolen copies, and Capcom hasn't said exactly how many got into the hands of not-so-lucky consumers. As if it's any shock, one of those consumers is trying to sell his copy on eBay; the starting bid is €478.78 with a buy-it-now price of €1196.71. You interested?
