I feel sorry for the poor guy. Before buying a used console or electronics of any sort, you have to think twice, not only due to these theft incidents but also because of warranty issues.

Too bad the cops wont be knocking on my door though, my two 60 and 80 gig beasts are brand new from Amazon.

"Too bad the cops wont be knocking on my door though, my two 60 and 80 gig beasts are brand new from Amazon."

Does that mean you want the cops to be knocking on your door? lol

I'm amazed the police where able to track it down though, over here, my friend had £3000 of items stole from his house and they never recovered it!

Not sure I like the idea of these game companies sharing info with the cops without our knowledge though.

Why didn't the police arrest the Store which had the stolen item instead of the buyer? Not only did it piss the guy off buy he probably won't buy another thing from that store or mall again! "No one wants to Break Bread, an have the Police go Upside your Head!" Gammers be aware!

"But later, when he went to the store, employees gave him an Xbox 360."
This was the saddest part. Poor guy.

"Waller is appreciative of the offer from the store but notes the Xbox isn't nearly as expensive or sophisticated as the PlayStation." Very true.

"Plus, he said he's just not had luck with Xbox consoles." RROD problems. Just like any other xbutt.

LOL...

He always has the option of a lawsuit. I know that people tend to sue too much, but in this case it seem warranted to me as these people actually incurred damages due to the negligence of the retailer.

whateva3386d ago

because if someone steal it and go online I can track them down and beat them like the dog they are lol.
