Masked Robbers Steal 6,000 Copies of ‘Modern Warfare 3’.

There’s an impressive impatience when it comes to Modern Warfare 3. People need it!  First it was folks  buying the game at Big Box Store, selling it on eBay for $1,000+. Now there’s masked robbers stealing 6,000 copies of it being stolen in an impressive heist.


As if we needed reminding of how big a commercial event the release of a new  Call of Duty  game is, word comes from France that a truck full of copies of the game has been hijacked by professional thieves.

On Saturday the truck, driving through Créteil in southern Paris, was rammed by another vehicle. After the dust had settled, two men emerged from the colliding car armed with knives, and used tear gas to subdue the truck’s driver and colleague before making off with an estimated 6000 video games, valued at around €400,000.

While initial reports did not specify which game/games in particular was involved,  later stories, citing the French news agency  France-Info, say the title in question is  Modern Warfare 3.
