How bad did one man want Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which was released Tuesday? Bad enough to follow a customer home from a Northland GameStop, point a gun and try to steal his game, according to court records released Tuesday.
Talk about idiots.A shipping warehouse here in Fresno,CA also got robbed of mw3 copies lol crazy people. http://youtu.be/NnEMrpVcMoM
Kinda like over in France where 6000 copies of MW3 were stolen the other day.. crazy!
ITS OVER 6000
Stealing something you know you can sell...something without a serial number. Pretty nuts.
Bet Activision will still count them as sales. LMAO! What? It's a joke. A bad one, but still a joke. Lol.
6000 ITS OVER
Actually those thief are doing us good in disguise stopping that king of garbage reaching to us
"Idiot with a gun fails in MW3 robbery attempt" You about to Prestige in prison with your Slight of Hand, Dead Silence & Extreme Conditioning, son.
Epic comment, Sir. bubbles for you!
LMFAO! Bubble up for hilarity.
he should have used ghost, maybe than the 27 year old wouldn't have seen him rob him
damn! mw3 is serious business!!! sold 9 million in a day
That picture gives me the creeping willies. Kid's with guns. *shudder* I'm 37, and I've never even seen a handgun in real life that wasn't on a policeman's hip and frankly I don't care if I ever do.
Really? I've seen guns everywhere all my life....then again I do live in Texas haha.
Really, if he wanted the game that bad he could have just sold that gun, and then bought the game... -But I guess thats too much common sense for a Robber.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
I live in Kansas City. I have been robbed at gunpoint 3 times, twice in kansas city. This is the reason I got my concealed carry permit. I carry a pistol everywhere I go, too many piece of shit criminals out there.
^^ Same. Except I live in a very small town that has so much drug related crimes that we our own special drug task force to deal with it. I DON'T EVER want to have to use it. But I carry it just in case.
Damn where part of town do you guys live in? I'm KCMO, north oak and 103rd, that game stop is 10 min from my place, I was at the gym 24hrs fitness that night, saw bunch of guys in line at 7:30 already.
Yea, getting more guns out on the street will help solve the problem!
That's just how Americans solve there problems. I doubt more then 300 people a year are ever robbed at gun point in Britain. Simply because guns aren't all over the street like in America and we have a few less retards shooting up schools. The problem is now the government has dug it's self such a big hole of self entitlement now that it would be next to impossible to take guns back from the American population. To many Rambo's using concealed pistols to "protect" themselves. And the problem is regardless of how good a person you are the only thing a pistol spreads is death. Am sorry but just take the robbery instead of starting a gun fight the next time sometime tries it. Leaved it to the trained professions to get rid of crime...
As a British citizen, I agree completely, there should be no need for someone to carry a gun with them at all times in a country as developed as America.
Ryudo, the government really CAN'T. It's written in the Constitution that every American has the right to bear arms. Though the government can try, Americans love our guns to much to let them defy the Constitution. And Ryudo, Britain apparently has a higher violent crime rate than South Africa and the U.S. Why? Because criminals can do what criminals do, that is, get ahold of guns, and other people can't. Need proof of your terrible crime rate? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/...
people in Britain just use knives instead, although saying that, if i was being robbed i would prefer a knife over a gun any day
Here's some advice, don't use the Daily Mail, it's a complete joke.
Many of the peeps that are murdering, robbing, etc... with guns do not usually have a permit. The ones without a permit are getting them from like a black market. If the USA bans guns nothing will change except that those that had a permit could no longer defend themselves. Guns are not the problem it is the people wielding them. If you take guns away then we will have more robberies, murders, etc... with knives, axes, pillows, etc... @Ryudo Those retards usually do not have a permit so banning guns will not do anything but keep those who are getting it legally. It is like many of the things EA, THQ and Ubisoft are doing. They punish the gamers for buying it new and legally thinking it will stop piracy and used game buying. The only people that suffer are the ones who buy the games legally. The pirates will still pirate no matter what.
Bloody hell! That's why guns are outlawed here in the UK!
Dude if you got robbed 3 times and you have to carry a concealed gun with you when you leave the house then thats a sign. A sign that say STFO.
I'm in Belton but drive through KCMO and Grandview very often. It's getting really bad here. Unfortunately I cannot respond anymore because I was bubble raped for some reason. To the people that don't understand conceal carry: I live in America, the land of freedom. I should not have to submit to any criminal. I carry a gun for defense only. If you pull a gun on me, I want a chance to defend myself. I'm not going to lay there and wait to die. Have any of you naysayers ever had to look down the barrel of a gun and wonder if you were about to die? Have you ever thought that you would never see your family again or be able to kiss your wife goodnight ever again because you were about to be shot over $20? Have you ever felt so humiliated because someone had a gun to your held calling you a fucking loser and saying if you move I'll kill you? I have... 3 fucking times. You brits always condemn americans for our guns, try stepping in our shoes for once. Criminals are just that and they don't care if guns are illegal or not. I carry my gun legally and safely. I am trained in its use and know the laws as to when I can use it. Just remember, when seconds count, the police are minutes away.
These people have no self control I tellz ya. Next time we read something like this it should read Over 9000 robberies commited because of MW3
Lol for some reason, while reading the article - all I could picture the kid looking like was the image used for the article and this submission. lmao like, I just pictured a dark street and this, apparently fat kid, trying to rob lmao.
He forgot that Auto aim doesn't actually exist, and guns do have recoil.
Yes they do! and you can run into buildings to avoid being hit by a nuke duuurrr were are you from planet real world? pffft ;) lol
idiot and mw3 in the same sentence? nnnooo
uhhhhhh y? the game sucks!
Yuch what does this series do to people??
Don't blame the game, blame the gamer. Although I am not a fan of COD, I am sure that the criminal in question would still be a criminal even if COD did not exist. He would just be stealing Skyrim or some other game instead.
He doesn't look much like a cold-blooded killer, does he? =/ But then.. Looks can be deceiving. Regardless, His Dad should learn to hide his gun in a more secure place next time.
wow that's him? lmao...gonna get it so hard in jail
I think the guy who thought fighting off an armed robber for a $60 game was a good idea was the bigger idiot to be honest.
Yeah 60 bucks or your life, the victim came out lucky. Its hard to know what would go on in your mind at a time like that, somebody's first impulse could be to fight back.
he says he would have given it up if he had time to think...its right in the article and a direct quote from him.
I definitely agree, getting killed because of a COD game would probably get him more facepalms than prayers.
If you risking your life for CoD 3 then you just got robbed twice.
I would've just flipped him a copy of COD4 or MW2 and said "just take this, it's the same thing". Crisis averted.
Lol!!!!!!!! That's probably the best Call of Duty joke I've heard/read in a loooooooooong time.
lol that they found him at Gemstop waiting in line after he failed to steal it.
This is how stupid *some* MW fans are.
I guess one man's trash is another man's treasure. I honestly don't see the appeal of this series (it puzzles me), but hey whatever floats your boat. I'm a "single player story" man myself and COD (like alot of other FPS's) have kinda morphed into 25% story + 75% multi-player. Yet if I mention to my friends that I'm not interested in COD...they look at me like I rape sheep and stab kittens! LOL
Now he's going to to jail and get a "tactical insertion". Whuahaha!
bwhaha. silly kids.
Okay so this kid had the money to buy the game but didn't have the patience to wait in line. He decides to rob someone but ended up robbing the wrong guy and fails. He then goes back in line to buy the $60 game and gets caught and now he needs $50k to post bail. Another brilliant fail!
These kind of people make me loose any hope in humanity.
Lmao at the pic!
HAHA! Yeah that's what brought me in here. I think I found my new facebook profile pic.
serriously.. this is just so F*ing stupid...how is it possible to get this blown up in the head?... the gunman is a F*ing twat.
"The gunman racked another round, causing the first round to eject and fall on the ground." Fail, you don't rob people at gun point, unless your willing to pull the trigger. Hope you can afford a good attorney, your gonna need it.
Amazing! He must've felt like the 'shit' whilst playing COD...should definitely reference it on his gamertag.
I like how the idiot pulled the slide back on the gun twice, like he was in a movie....moron.
That's exactly what I was thinking. He obviously didn't know what he was doing. Which I guess is a good thing in this case.
What a douchebag! all this for MW3. Its the worst in the series.
This idiot probably spent more time following his mark in an attempt to get this game as oppose to just waiting in line for his copy. He could be home playing sabotage with friends, now he'll be trying to keep people from playing seek and destroy prison house edition. What a moron.
Guy should have known better, you don't mess with someone who's sir name is "Freeman" ;D All jokes aside. What an idiot! is this the kind thuggery and social degeneration that CoD inspires? well probably not, a thug attempting robbery is nothing new but gamers get a bad enough rep as it is.
That kid in the picture really needs to stop playing video games for a bit and brush those teeth and get some dental work done.
I don't know about you guys, but this proves that videogames cause violence and corrupt people, we need a law or two to stop this industry now! *rolls eyes* Stupidity of one invidual gets this high notification when it has relation to well known gaming franchise. Now where are the real news? thank you.
what a stupid dumb ass
I would've punished his ass. Let him run away my ass, he would've been crucified laying on the ground.
Pointing a gun at a cod player? What's wrong with him? He's lucky the other didn't whip out the ballistic knives.
that fat thing in the picture is disgusting.
