Professional Thieves Loot 6,000 Copies Of MW3

400,000 Euros pilfered in Parisian heist.

During the weekend it was reported that a consignment of video games, worth in excess of 400,000 Euros, had been stolen by organised thieves during a truck heist in Créteil, south Paris.

According to the reports the vehicle was rammed; in the commotion two armed thieves emerged from the offending car and used tear gas to subdue the driver before driving away in the delivery truck.

So far we know that the cargo was a shipment of video games, other sources indicating that these were in fact copies of Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

    I call Activision PR stunt – it’s the kind of thing they would do just to get some press – “look, people are so eager to get the game they’re ramming delivery trucks!”.

      As a copy recently sold on ebay for around $1725 (after bidding of course), i think that this was actually the cheaper option!!
