Serious About This Game

People REALLY want to play their Call of Duty. Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games' Modern Warfare 3 hits stores tomorrow, but a pair of (presumably French) thieves didn't want to wait that long. Two masked men armed with tear gas and knives relieved a delivery truck of its 6,000 copies of the game yesterday morning in a hijacking that took place just south of Paris. The scene that unfolded sounds like something out of a video game... say a Call of Duty game! The thieves crashed their car into a van transporting the game, according to a TF1 news report (via GameSpot). They then gassed the delivery driver and drove off in the van with the shipment that is almost assuredly speeding its way to black and gray markets now. The shipment is valued at roughly 400,000 Euros, according to a report from Agence France Presse. Read more:

Didn't this happen for MW2 or BO as well?

Oh wow... this is the first time I've heard of a robbery like this.

Forget robbing the store, intercept the shipments.

And I'm sure they didn't do this just because they really want the game. 400,000 Euros is a lot of money that can be made.

@Noxious, yeah I believe so but I don't think they were pros like this lol.

I think there were just two Battlefield 3 fans afraid or MW3 taking over they beloved game.  AND they used a vehicle and teamwork just like in their game. I give them credit for being dedicated to protect BF3 at all cost.  Real soldiers... lol...
