All too real: Sydney gamer mugged after Call of Duty launch

Call of Duty became all too real for one excited gamer who never even got the chance to play his new game.

A Sydney gamer was mugged at gun-point late last year, following the highly anticipated midnight launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Mugged at gunpoint for a game. WOW. That person could have bought the game instead of that gun.

Yeah, some people are just messed up

But he can use that gun to get multiple games. It's a long-term investment.

Let that be a lesson to all. Do not buy Call of Duty. Jks.

That would suck. Instead of driving to midnight launches, I usually walk the 5km to the shops at around 10PM with my friends. It is awesome as we just talk about random shit the whole way there, untill about a minute before we go in it hits us that we are about to pick up some amazing, long awaited game. The walk back is just a big load of excitement, it makes the whole experience memorable.

My point being I couldn't imagine some ass-bag comletely ruining my night, just to make a quick buck. I'm not a CoD fan really, but c'mon, that thief is a dog. Might be the only time I'll ever say this but Activision did a good thing.
Now if only those Apple douche-bags could replace his iPhone lol.
