Capcom has confirmed that early copies of Resident Evil 6, which appeared in a Polish store and were subsequently sold to gamers, were stolen.
"Capcom is currently undertaking a thorough investigation into reports that Resident Evil 6 is being sold ahead of its official October 2nd release date," reads a press statement release to MCV.
"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." The incident has not affected plans to release the game at its planned October 2 launch date."
So there we go, if you get a early copy, it's probably dodgy.
