The holidays are upon us, the Wii and PS3 are sold out, but now we're hearing echoes of the 360's launch. British website, Reg Hardware, is reporting that a truckload (lorryload for the Brits our there) of 360s was recently hijacked in Staffordshire, England. At least three men in two cars (believed to be Range Rovers) flagged the truck driver down by signaling that there was something stuck under his tires. After he stopped, the men attacked the driver and stole his vehicle, containing £500,000 ($950,000) worth of WWE: SmackDown Vs. RAW 2007 Xbox 360 bundles. The driver has been treated for minor injuries and the truck was found emptied later that day. The police suspect that the owner of a red Subaru had been casing the distribution center that morning. What's more, this is the second attack on Xbox shipments in the last five days. The distribution center is now conducting internal investigations.
Reading this story of hijacking and violence, we can't help but remember that it's Black Friday. Whatever system you're out there to purchase today, remember that it's just a console folks. Oh, and be on the look out for mysteriously cheap WWE: SmackDown Vs. RAW 2007 bundles.
