Over 6,000 copies of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3,” one of the most anticipated video games were stolen over the weekend in two violent robberies in France. The trucks carrying the video game was hijacked and robbed in a theft so ludicrously staged that it could have been its own Call of Duty mission.
According to police reports, in one incident, “two men crashed into the delivery truck before emerging with hoods over their heads and knives in their hands. They then used tear gas to put the drivers down before making off with the loot. The shipment is said to be worth 400,000 Euros.”
In a second theft, three hooded men with weapons stole another truck after blocking the road. The total amount of value lost is estimated at 780,000 Euros.
All of this seems a bit extreme to play the game a few earlier. But in all seriousness, “Modern Warfare 3” is now out in stores and the heist officially makes the game even more badass.
