Buyerhazard- Stolen Copies of Resident Evil Being Sold in Poland

Apologies for that awful, awful pun.

Capcom have come out today and said that a couple of stores in Poland are selling 'stolen' copies of Resident Evil 6, much earlier than its release date. One of the buyers of the stolen copies has even put in on eBay, with the current bid being 478.78 Euros, and a Buy It Now price of 1,196.71 Euros.

"Capcom is currently undertaking a thorough investigation into reports that Resident Evil 6 is being sold ahead of its official October 2 release date," Capcom have said in a statement. "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."

I'm a bit unsure what they mean by 'stolen', whether they mean the stores somehow got their hands on illegal copies, or if they were just shipped really early and the stores put them on the shelves, breaking the street date by an entire month. I highly doubt that would be accidental.You could say that once Capcom's lawyers get a hold of them there will be No Hope Left. Ah? Ah? Thankyou, I'm here til Tuesday.
