    duck360 and Hakoom are two accounts of trophy hunting groups, so they're not just two people

    How much you wanna bet that the cops will crack down on anyone they see playing it online early... And didn't this happen before with another game?

    They don't care about playing the game early lol... you wait til Tuesday and sell them all for 10 bucks or so less and bam nearly a half million dollars and it wasn't even that much risk involved.

    Can you believe what the Call of Duty franchise has become? It's really saddening.

    No way. It's too late for them to get pushed back. They're already at distribution centers or on the way there. Places like Wal Mart, Game Stop, Best Buy, etc. already have them in their warehouse waiting to come out for midnight release.

    Or because they went through the trouble of committing a huge crime, they'll try to maximize their profit and sell them early to players who will pay way over retail just to have the game before the public.

    I think the biggest surprise here is that the delivery truck was only caring 6,00 copies. I would have expected the truck to have more.

    Yes but there isn't that much time to sell 6,000 copies individually and without drawing attention. unless you have a wholesale person to buy them in bulk in which case you have to sell them cheaper anyways. Plus there is alot more risk selling it before the release date then after. Personally i'd sit on it for another day or two and take over 200,000 easy, and with much less chance of getting caught.

    I don't know. Playing against 5,998 other people would qualify as "many people" in books.

    If you look at MW3 trophies on this site theres already like 5 people that have trophies for this game. They probably a few of the 6000 that got a copy early.

    I was reading about this yesterday...what a bunch of idiots.

    Wonder if there's anyway of the producers tracking the games when they are used online? Probably not..

    Stealing games like this is a great idea. You can't trace the the games as far as I'm aware, and you can sell them on Ebay.

    Sell them at 50 euros a pop and you've got yourself 300,000 euros. Then with some of that money you can you plan to hijack a truck containing the next CoD.

    Keep this up and within a few years you'll have a million euros do to what you want with.

    Just check out eBay and Amazon to find these thieves. When you see MW3 for $50...BINGO.

    6000 copies of MW3? Don't these low life thieves have any taste in what games they steal?
