In the new console generation, the PlayStation 4 appears to be the second best choice — for robbers in Indianapolis that is. Last week, two suspects stormed a GameStop on the south side of the city and demanded — by name — all of the Xbox Ones in stock.
The GameStop employees replied, more or less, “Uh, we don’t got any.”
So the assailants forced the GameStop workers into a back room, forcing them to lay down on the floor. The robbers made away with nine PS4s at a combined value of $US3600 which, unlike most other reports of video game crime, actually corresponds to the stolen goods’ suggested retail price.
“24-Hour News 8 is looking into this investigation as police try to locate the robbers,” reports WISH-TV, which is not, as far as we know, a public safety agency.
