Man Robs GameStop for 100 Copies of MW2

Without a doubt, Modern Warfare 2 is the hottest item over the last week, literally, as someone robbed 100 copies of the game on the day of launch.

According to the AP, a man walked inside a GameStop at around 7 p.m. on November 10 and told clerks that he has a friend waiting outside who would shoot them if they called the police.

The man then stole 100 copies of Modern Warfare 2 and some other items with a total retail value of $6,900.

Modern Warfare 2's launch was the biggest in game history with an estimated 4.7 million sold on the first day in North America and UK.
