Some people just can't wait to get their hands on the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3! I'm excited as hell for the game, but I'm not going to go out and plan a robbery to get it earlier. The Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games' Modern Warfare 3 hits stores tomorrow, but a group of French dudes couldn't hold off that long. Their were three masked men who armed themselves with tear gas and knives and hijacked a delivery truck just south of Paris filled with 6,000 copies of the game.
According ot the original report, the two thieves rammed their car into the van transporting the game. They then gassed the delivery drivers and drove off in the van with the shipment of 6,000 Modern Warfare 3 games that have mostly likely ended up being sold on the black market or online. The shipment is valued at roughly 780,000 Euros, according to a report from Agence France Presse. There is also a report saying that the men took the van over with some kind of weapon after having blocked the road. But that doesn't sound as exciting.
This sounds like it come right out of a video game or movie.
