Exclamation $1.1 million worth of PlayStation 3 games STOLEN

Looks like console piracy is having a hard time with Playstation 3.

September 29, 2008

$1.1 Million Worth Of PlayStation 3 Games Stolen
£600,000 ($1.1 million) worth of PlayStation 3 games are missing in the UK after being stolen twice -- first from their shipping driver, and then again from the Leeds police's "secure" depot.

The stolen games are comprised of seven shipping pallets, including Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV and 16,000 units of Ubisoft's Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway

According to British daily tabloid paper The Sun, while the shipping driver rested, thieves loaded the pallets into a blue Renault truck. Cops in Leeds noticed the Renault's fake number plates and seized the truck and its stolen loot -- but the truck was later stolen again when shutters at the impound depot were smashed.

Police found the Renault in a Matalan car park in nearby Bradford, West Yorks days later, but the games were gone.

Says a police spokesman, "We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry, including eBay transactions where a number of the games have been potentially identified as being advertised for sale. Arrests have already been made in respect of this."

Ubisoft reassured gamers in the region that copies will still be available to purchase, commenting, "Fans needn’t worry as more stock is being parachuted in."

And some people say piracy isn't a big problem. Well, maybe internet pirates aren't, but who is gonna stop the real ones?
