Capcom: "limited" quantity of Resident Evil 6 copies stolen

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.

Capcom must be fuming. As much as I don't like Capcom's practices, this is very bad for them. It seems that some people are willing to do this stuff even though it hurts the video game industry. Sad times.

Any loss of revenue from this, i'm sure they'll make up for it in the future with the release of Resident Evil 6 Super Duper Ultimate Edition. :)

Capcom should counteract this by releasing the game earlier, if its completed why not release ASAP

I hope that Capcom is pissed off. I am not a fan of how disrespectfully they treat their customers. Latest being a new DLC 'the true ending to Asura's Wrath'. I will be purchasing this game but I like to keep my money away from Capcom and I don't purchase any DLC they have to offer.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
