Armed robbers hold GameStop staff at gunpoint make off with 100 copies

first_imgEveryone expected Activision’s latest Call of Duty title to launch big after the record-smashing success of Modern Warfare 2… but I’m not sure anyone expected the launch of Call Of Duty: Black Ops to be accompanied by real-life semi-automatic gunfire. But it did.The incident happened at Baltimore-area GameStop, when two men with semi-automatic weapons burst into the store and pointed their weapons at employees, looking to break street date on Black Ops.According to the Harford County, Maryland sheriff’s office, the heist happened on Saturday, and the robbers waited until closing in time to stick up the GameStop located at the Festival at Bel Air shopping center, about thirty miles northeast of Baltimore.Two customers who happened to wander into the store during the robbery were forced along with the employees into a storage area while the robbers made off with over one hundred copies of Black Ops and all the cash in the register.Luckily, no one has hurt, but there’s going to be 100 disappointed Black Ops pre-orderers in Bel Air this morning.Wondering if Black Ops is good enough to rob a joint for? Expect to see our review of Call of Duty: Black Ops soon.Read more at Gizmodolast_img read more
