It’s not unusual for a retailer to mess up the date and release a new book or game a day or two early in a couple of stores, but by more then a month? Ouch. It seems a Polish retailer must’ve put Resident Evil 6 on it’s shelves as soon as they received a shipment, because I can’t think of any other reason for it. Capcom was understandably not amused.
When asked if Capcom would release the game earlier now, Senior VP Christian Svensson responded “The NA date remains 10/2.” So, dreams crushed if you thought you might get a legitimate copy early, but I’m willing to bet there will be a few rich polish gamers after they sell their copies on eBay.
