    Default Three Entire Countries Had Their Assassinís Creed III Shipments Stolen



    It seems that every single copy of the PC version of Assassinís Creed III bound for store shelves in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg was being shipped in a single truck. And that truck has been stolen by criminals.

    According to this report from Dutch industry site EB, the theft took place on November 14. While Ubisoft claims the gameís launch this week wonít be affected, with new stock sourced from elsewhere, it has affected customers who preordered the limited ďJoin or DieĒ edition of the game, as this canít be re-manufactured.

    While Ubisoft has passed on the barcodes and serial numbers of the stolen games to retailers, and has blacklisted those same numbers from its online authentication servers, youíd imagine the thieves knew exactly what they were doing. Itís not like getting around PC DRM is the hardest thing in the world for people to do, criminals or not.

    Yep.

    But they could still sell them espically considering if they are limited editions for quite a lot to unsuspecting consumers.
