A few days ago we brought you news that someone paid over a grand for a copy of Modern Warfare 3 mere days before its release and honestly, I didn’t think that we’d be able to top that, not with the game coming out in under a day. I guess I underestimated you France. Bravo.

A delivery truck carrying 6,000 copies of the highly anticipated shooter was hijacked over the weekend in Creteil, France. The truck apparently was hit by another car, but when the car’s driver’s emerged, they tear gased the truck driver and made off with the games. Yeah, that serious.

The bandits got off with about 400,000 euros or about $551,000 in games. Don’t feel like ripping off a delivery truck? You can get your copy of Modern Warfare 3 on November 8.
