Sorry for the bad news on the BIG day (oh yeah!) but reports have just surfaced that some 10,000 Modern Warfare 3 discs were stolen in France. The perpetrators are still unknown, but the scale of the crime is so alarming and was executed with such precision that Activision has another major headache coming. Turns out on Saturday two delivery vans were jacked in two separate locations. The perpetrators then looted their contents, making off with a good number of MW3 discs. Anybody smell a big screen adaptation?
The deed also reeks of an inside job. Note that according to Le Parisien, the Micromania vans were both en route to stores when they were trapped. The criminal’s modus was to ram and immobilize them, then use tear gas to suppress the passengers. It’s obvious this isn’t some random act of thievery.
As for the discs? Nowhere to be found.
