Carjacked - 6k Copies Of Mw3 Stolen Nov. 7th, 2011 @ 02:46 AM Reply

A French delivery truck containing 6,000 copies of Modern Warfare 3 was stolen.

Truck may be found off road, abandoned, after hijackers actually played MW3...sources tell us they are now looking for a truck containing 6,000 copies of Battlefield 3.

Won't happen. BF3 player base aren't retarded enough to pay $1.7k just to get their early copies.

It is. There's an astounding number of reasons why BF3 is better.

I wonder if this will overall impact Modern Warfare's sales?

not likely, the thing will still sell millions of copies so 6000 is just a drop in the bucket.

I would've driven the truck into some ravine, nevermind playing the garbage.

It's out in 6 fucking hours here in the UK which means 8 hours in France if my timezones are correct. Was that really worth it?

Well, even if they sell it, underground, for even a fraction of the price, it's still 100% profit for them illegally selling a game that's high in demand, and because it's brand new, VERY high in price.

...so...yeah, I think it is.

It actually comes out tomorrow.

Not worth it IMO.

What the hell are they going to do with 6000 copies of MW3 ? Selling them would make them look a bit suspicious

To me it sounds like a big marketing ploy for Modern Warfare 3. If it happened I'm sure it would have been on major news around the world.

And not because it's MW3, but the fact that a truck was hijacked that way.

Yeah, tear gas seems a bit too tactical for COD nerds. But then again if I was gonna steal a truck of Skyrim I'd have my knives and some steel armor.

Thank God BF3 got released before MW3. BF3 has been and will always be better than Call of Duty. However, I'm very excited to play the MW3 campaign. I've always enjoyed the Call of Duty campaigns more than anything else in the game.

Call of Duty does have a knack for story telling, i'll give them that. both Infinity Ward and Treyarch are decent in that aspect.
