Somebody must really like Call of Duty

by Jimmy Yakapucci Tue Nov 09, 2010 8:06 am

This happened at a Gamestop kind of near me:

Just waiting for that stuff to show up on Craigslist.

Wow! I knew fans of the series took the games very seriously but this is just nuts. Armed robbery with the target being a video game. Either these guys think it will sell for big bucks or have alot of younger brothers.

O and apparently its almost exactly the same as the last game, which has kinda put me off buying it. Anyone got any insight on this?

It's like modern day mafia operations, bold and risky crimes that yield small profit margins.

NO profit margin. Every one of the stolen games they sell is 100% profit.

The cashiers reported "two total n00bz rushed the base wielding noobcannons" but the cashiers were unable to make a positive identification on the perps due to "lag".
