How did this happen? Months before the game goes officially on sale, Resident Evil 6 unofficially went on sale in Poland, out of all places. Capcom has officially confirmed that those copies were indeed stolen.
Specifically, Resident Evil 6 showed up in the city of Poznan last week, with the intended release of the game on October 2nd. According to Capcom, the incident is ”limited to a small quantity of stolen copies of the German USK PlayStation 3 version of the game.” Interestingly enough, some chap is actually selling the game on eBay. Before you jump to the page and attempt to acquire it, however, you should know that it’s a crime to possess goods that are knowingly stolen. Just a warning!
