stolen in armed robbery
Coming via French news channel TF1 - an armed robbery took place in France over the weekend that resulted in the theft of approximately 6,000 copies of Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
The report detailed how two men crashed their car into a van carrying unspecified video game cargo before spraying its occupants with tear gas and stealing both the van and contents. The contents of the van was later confirmed to be copies of Modern Warfare 3 and the theft is believed to be worth around €400,000. The report states that the assailants were armed with knives but does not mention if the victims of the assault were hurt.
A later update to the story suggested that a second robbery took place under similar circumstances, with a car used to block the road before three men commandeered another delivery van and stole a further cache of MW3 worth similar value to the first.
Elsewhere, demand for MW3 has been predictably high, with one eBay copy of the game allegedly selling for over $1,700. MW3 officially launches tonight at midnight.

Being an armed robber in France must be the easiest freakin\' job in the world. It's a good job they've got a f#ck ton of jets, otherwise I'd start to think that our military alliance was just a one way thing...
