...in Poland. A few lucky blokes got their hands on full retail copies of RE6 because apparently this shop doesn't understand what a street date is.

Game is in English with selectible Polish subtitles.

Quick and dirty translation:

A certain shop in Poznań had something for sale that appeared to be an authentic retail copy of Resident Evil 6, in Polish to boot. One may or may not believe in miracles, but we decided to believe and bought it. Lo and behold, it turned out to be the real thing!



As promised by the Polish distributor, Polish subtitles are selectible. English ones are, too. The packaging itself is in German. Strange indeed, but the game plays as advertised.



Only a few copies were put up on sale and now none are left. A few lucky buyers are killing their way through zombie hordes right now while the rest of the world waits.



How did this game find its way into this shop so early? The seller didn't want to reveal his secrets.

TO BE CONTINUED - more info to come soon - including video footage.

Lucky bastards. It will be nice to get some impressions on the PS3 version, though.

I doubt it's from a store... no way Capcom is shipping it so earlier. Probably it's been stolen from a printing facility, a warehouse or something like that...

That giraffe is probably a really cool dude! Why hate? Why the cockblockage?

He probably didn't even want that tender moment on the front of a video game.

Put yourself in his weird-assed alien hooves for a minute.

Yeah, it's been gold about that long. But I can't believe stores are already getting it in this early. I want my copy now, lol.

That's pretty shitty to have the discs printed but still make people wait an entire month. Usually these stores get it maybe 1-2 weeks early but not this much.

I don't understand why in the hell they would go gold so early. Even if the game is 100% ready, why would you go gold 6 weeks in advance? You are just asking for things like this to happen. Just wait 3 weeks

PAL edition in the wild - will leak - sales will be not as good as expected - Capcom: "RE6 wasn't Western enough!" - outsources RE7 to some Western studio

Almost 100% certain stolen from factory.

It was same with the GT5 release in November 2010, Poland players had PAL release weeks before official release and made serious money on eBay.

Games go gold all of the time months before release. Some of them even sit in retail storage for at least a month. It's pretty common.

We have plenty of ideas. All of the previews with PS3 footage have been shown to run much smoother than RE5 did and not exhibit tearing. It's the 360 version that everyone is worried about as it was loaded with constant screen tearing.
