Stolen copies of Uncharted 4 are showing up in the UK

It’s not every day you get a message from Sony studio boss Shuhei Yoshida about a stolen game but that’s what’s happening. 

Speaking on the EU blog Shu says a number of copies of Uncharted 4 “were stolen while in transit” and some of these are now appearing in the UK. At a guess I’d say Sony can see them being played via online PS4s.

The theft is currently part of an ongoing criminal investigation says Shu, with Sony working with the police to “resolve the matter”.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us?
