Some guy actually gets arrested for stealing games?
Imagine that? After all the recent high profile leaks of Fable 2, Fallout 3, Gears of War 2 and more - somebody actually got off their arse and DID something about it. This wasn't a mere pirate they caught though, oh no. This guy had the brains to decide to steal hundreds of copies of the game from a company that was packaging them to send them to the shops, before we had the chance to buy them. He was a security guard for the games packaging company 'Technicolor' over in the USA surprisingly enough.
Unluckily for him, he was a bit dim. It seems he left several copies of stolen games in his car, and when he was pulled over by the cops for outstanding minor traffic offences they caught him red handed. They searched his apartment and found even more stolen goods.
This won't stop people torrenting Gears et al on masse, but it might make those of us who buy games feel a little bit better as we read about more and more leaked titles.
