6,000 Copies of Modern Warfare 3 Stolen in France
Why bother stealing a single copy of Modern Warfare 3 when you can steal 6,000 copies right?
While the game that was stolen from the shipping warehouse in California was probably done by amateurs, the copies that were stolen from a truck in Créteil, south Paris, were certainly not stolen by amateurs.
French site TFI News reports that the truck suffered a collision with a car before two masked individuals emerged. The criminals reportedly used tear gas to neutralise the truck drivers before hopping in and making off with the video game shipment said to be worth €400,000 (~$550,000).
Whether you got your early copy of Modern Warfare 3 from the stolen batch in France, K-Mart or somewhere else. Be careful playing the game early as it may result in a ban.
