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?

So much for video games not breeding violent behavior

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

Correlation is not causation.

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".
