Posted on September 4, 2012, Ross Lincoln Yep; Stolen Copies Of Resident Evil 6 Have Been Sold
Reports that stolen copies of Resident Evil 6 have been sold illegally in Poland are true, Capcom has confirmed. In an official statement, Capcom confirmed that it is “[C]urrently undertaking a thorough investigation into reports that Resident Evil 6 is being sold ahead of its official October 2 release date.” No details about the scale of the problem are available, however. “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.”
This makes me feel sad for Polish gamers. They’re not only buying stolen property, which is very low on the list of crimes that are extremely cool, they’re also buying Resident Evil 6 and thinking it’s actually going to be a Resident Evil game instead of yet another generic action shooter with zombies, one with way too many cut scenes.
