The article goes on to stress how common-place video game and electronics thefts are these days, both for businesses and personal property. Indeed, the Orlando Sentinel has a report of a new Playstation 3 owner getting mugged for her system on the way from the store to her car. So if you do manage to track down one of those rare PS3 units, may we humbly suggest that you watch your back.
