Some stores have been selling stolen copies of Resident Evil 6, way ahead of its October release date.
Although limited to a small number of discs available at a small number of outlets, the leak of the German version of the game was serious enough for Capcom to set up an investigation.
"Capcom is currently undertaking a thorough investigation into reports that Resident Evil 6 is being sold ahead of its official October 2 release date," said the publisher 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."
There’s a copy of one of the stolen discs on eBay. You can buy it if you want early, probably rubbish, stolen, very expensive German versions of upcoming games.
We wouldn’t recommend it though. Here, watch some gameplay instead.
