Assassin’s Creed 3 Shipment Stolen!

By NeonAnderson19-11-2012

Time to send the Assassin's after the thieves!

As reported by “Entertainment Business NL” (EB), a large shipment of Assassin’s Creed 3 PC edition that was intended for the BENELUX (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg) was stolen! While the theft of video game shipments is nothing new, the result of this theft for the consumers within the BENELUX region will be quite drastic. EB reports that for whatever reasons, Ubisoft will not be able to resupply the “Join or Die” PC Edition for that region to replace the ones that have been stolen. Ubisoft will however be replacing the entire shipment with a fresh batch of standard PC editions.

Ubisoft has told EB that they have notified the police about the stolen shipment and will be attempting the track the stolen shipment and warns stores and consumers against buying any new Assassin’s Creed 3 copies. As a warning from Pixel Judge, it is likely many of these copies might appear on Ebay and similar sites. So be vigilant when purchasing any Assassin’s Creed 3 PC versions from such sites.

We have reached out towards Ubisoft for an answer on the matter and will keep you folks updated on the issue.

That'll surely be interesting to read. I actually wrote an essay on the matter of piracy for my university last year. Would be fun to see what points you make, the references and stuff. :)

I'll be raising that issue in my Piracy article. It is still in the works, just been very busy with other more important content... and irl stuff, such as the flu :'( However, once it is done it will discuss some of the very interesting and shocking stuff I found in a recent University assignment I did and the research I had to do for it. It explains a lot about why companies like Ubisoft ruin their sales with DRM measures while thinking they are protecting sales.

Too bad their DRM couldn't stop ACTUAl theft.... Oh wait, it can't stop piracy either. Just ruin things for legitimate buyers. Never mind.
