Remember back when the initial release date for Resident Evil 6 was November 20th? Remember when Capcom then changed that date to October 2nd? Remember how its actually August 31st today? Tell that to Poland. Or specifically, to a certain Polish retailer who has broken the official street date.
Polish website Neogo states that a retailer in Poznan (a city in west-central Poland) is selling multiple legitimate copies of Resident Evil 6 on PS3 to the public. The website states that “only a few copies” were sold. No copies are left on the store shelves, meaning a very select and fortunate customers are currently plowing through zombies and Plagas creatures as Leon, Chris and Jake.
Whether this was an error or an intentional scheme is uncertain, as the seller “did not want to share his secret”. Suspicious! Stolen goods? Ignorance of the embargo date? Piracy? This supposed “video games retailer” could be the resurgence of the Umbrella Corporation itself.
Pictured above is one of these purchased games, complete with box, manual, and disc. The boxes are German, but apparently the game is in English and includes Polish subtitles, so the lucky customers are able to fully enjoy it. Assuming they don’t decide to sell any for bucket-loads on eBay.
Interestingly, the site claims to upload video footage soon enough to prove the truth to its claims. Photographs of the game running on one of the owner’s TV are already available on the website. Survival horror fans should not only be trying hard to control their jealousy, but should also be cautious when navigating websites and forums in the excited build-up to the game’s release – With a month to go before the official release date, all of the game’s secrets could easily be dissected by then. Who knows when plot spoilers will leak and spread across the Internet like the T-virus?
