Ouch.  Guess people buying the game think GTV is real and not just a video game?

No. Just people like you think that GTA is real.

He was robbed of items he had bought from a nearby Asda supermarket... including a copy of Grand Theft Auto.


So for all we know, he bought diamonds with that GTA copy and was robbed on his way home from the shop, just like many others around the world that didn't have any GTA copies on them or even knew the game was released/existed.

Attempted murder, for a £40 game...

 

Pathetic. Utterly, utterly pathetic.

Its one of the downsides to midnight launches, not many people around once you have left the shop.. and you're carrying something with a high resell value.

The media are using this as an excuse to jump on the whole violence in game thing.

 

People get stabbed and mugged in London all the time it never makes the headlines this much.

 

I bet the only possible link between the robbing and GTA is that perhaps the robber thought he could easily target little gaming nerds wandering around alone at night. Most articles don't state he was also robbed of his phone and wallet.. it just so happens he had GTA on him which was also stolen, obviously, it's in high demand people will pay for it on the black market.
