Polish gamers enjoy Resident Evil 6 early due to happy[?] accident
With slightly over a month to go before the big launch of Resident Evil 6, a Polish retailer has accidentally released what appears to be the German version of the game.
Rafał Baranowski, writer for the Polish site NeoGo, heard murmurs about the game’s availability in the city of Poznan, so he decided to head on over there to check out. Surely enough, he was able to find himself a copy at a local shop.
If you don’t believe him, he shared the following images to prove the legitimacy of his claims:
Well, it looks someone has some explaining to do.
But don't worry Capcom. NeoGo doesn’t plan on spoiling too much of the game, as Baranowski told Joystiq, "I will play deeper into the game over the weekend, but please note that we do not plan to make tons of videos. Capcom would kill us."
In conclusion, if you happen to be a Resident Evil fan who lives in Pozan and can understand German, you may want to try finding yourself a copy, as the rest of us wait for October 2 to come.
You see Capcom, this is what happens when you give out games to stores a month earlier somehow. lol
Nope, read the original articla and the mentioned Polish and English language in game, since it was from Polish distributor. They mentioned only that it was weird the cover was German. I blame IGN, since the SCREWATTACK just copied and pasted what they published. It was their overinterpretation.
the torrent is strong in this one...
Its likely that the voices were in German but the subtitles may included several languages.
German? I see Polish subs, maybe the voices are German, but I doubt it highly, so where did you take German part from? From what I read only the cover is in german, rest is ENG and POL.
There be a spoiler storm a brewin'
Actually I don't think the retailer will be too angry with that particular store. The reason. Money. A ton of it.
never tough of doing that ._.
I find this hilarious. The best part is that that particular store (and even more specifically, the staff involved in letting this happen) are going to be in big trouble.
I honestly don't know how they could be so stupid. Those boxes always come with big embargo dates written all over them. It's not a simple matter of receiving a shipment then going "durr hurr we better put them out for sale now", because they have specific instructions ON THE BOX not to do so. Looks like someone was trying to get away with making a quick buck. Now they probably won't be making any, at least not via Capcom. If they DID do this on purpose.... did they really think they could get away with this sort of thing in this day and age?
That's exactly what I thought. If it's meant to be out on October 2nd, why do they already have copies? Seems silly to me.
I dunno, Capcom is pretty cheap after all.
Thats the EU Box Art. US might get another.
you gotta turn games into pickles to make them better
That's hilarious. Why is the game suppose to be sitting in storage for a month? I don't think it'd take that long to distribute it to stores.
I want to try out RE6 i can wait until it comes out
i wouldn't be surprised if spoiler videos go up on youtube like the time Halo 3: ODST got sold early in france
Wow , so that actually is the box art for the game. I'm surprised they didn't use something more interesting
If this is true I'm sure it won't belong before copies hit ebay for way too much.
Considering the game wasn't announced that it has "gone gold" I'm finding this hard to believe.
