Ouch, I bet that hurt
Although, two seperate incidents with the same company does sound a bit fishy, wouldn't suprise me at all if the driver was in on it and had himself beaten so it'd look like a robbery, while later on he'd be rolling in the cash.
Snap up a bargin 360 or goto police. mmm. Decisions decisions......
I would get the 360 (as long as it is cheaper than it would be in Jan sales), then report to police that I have seen some dodgy ones.
Thats probably based on RRP value.
So actual value probably a chunk less. But even so, £1m+ from one company? Smell s like cod.
Cod in particular or any fish?
By the way if ya like the story:
Cod in particular, definately not herring, pretty sure it isn't snapper.
No, it's a Northern Pike! (aka Jackfish)
If the one company is doing the haulage for all the 360s then it's not so much a surprise as a given.
I presume you meant to write "most recent incident" rather than most regular incident?
However is it not possible that there is a log of the Serial numbers of all stolen 360's and as such MS could just brick them with a live update?
just screw their firmware when they connect to the internet
How about that limited special offer that was going on for the Core 360 package for just a $100. Hmm... I suspect something... Amazon, anyone?
But that would just be a waste of hard disk space for the 99.9% of other Xbox 360 around the world.
That would hurt the end user and not the theifs, not to mention create a bunch of negative publicity when MS kills little Billy's 360 that his dad claims "Fell off the back of a truck". MS already got paid for them, they're not going to shoot themselves in the foot for no gain.
Everyone else miss that little joke ? i chuckled when i saw it
Im sure that Microsoft would LOVE to kill Billy's PS3, seeing as it wouldnt effect them at all, as its a Sony product. *sarcasm overload*
I saw that & planned a comment, then I went off to look up fish
Don't beat me, I just got out of bed (Quarter to 4 in the afternoon on a holiday)
id snap one up like a so and so just to spite Bill Gates
Erm; how would the company uncle bill formerly headed be spited by this? The haulage firm has already snapped up the units, and paid their dues for them. MS isn't going to go "aww, we're sorry, have more to make up for it". They'll tell them to stuff it, and go bug their insurance.
