Not sure this belongs here. The only thing connecting this story with gaming is the console.

PS4 "Getting Mugged Awaits"

Just read this story on another site and it looks like the Thieves were caught.

YEAH and hopefully the kid gets his PS4 back.

This has happened with every PS release. Sad but true!

Only to get home and discover he has one of those foxconn sabotage ones.

I just LOVE how you made this story from a dude gettin robbed to a console war. Nice work. Maturity at its finest.

Evil_Abed1853d ago

Thank you? Also, it was a joke

Ashunderfire861853d ago

Yup your right and I heard when PS3 launch someone got shot in line.

I hope the thief gets what he deserves in prison for robbing an innocent dude for his hard earned ps4 like that. What a cunt.

Suspected thieves and actual proof of who it was are two different things. The guy was robbed by one guy, the police arrested two guys. They didn't both commit the crime.

"YEAH and hopefully the kid gets his PS4 back."

I can't remember the exact phrasing but cops once told me that they keep stolen objects as evidence till trial or some bs like that so he might still be out of luck for a while.

This is why I ordered mine for delivery. People these days what if the person they robbed had a weapon on him and decided to use it to protect himslf,lose your life over s video game SMH

What if the postman is a bit annoyed that he missed his chance to pre-order one?

A few words from said postman son could result in a failed delivery for a certain customer.

No names though. jk.

But yeah, I pre-order for delivery, as I dont want to go through the hassle of going to stores, and dealing with other potential issues.

better than a real gun, or a murder... hmmm *looks for his airsoft gun*

Damn scum. people earn their money to get a console jacked by awful excuses for humans. Hope the thief gets his due, and the owner gets their PS4 back or something to alleviate the situation.
