According to a report filed today, a robber recently burst into a London area branch of Blockbuster Video in the greater London suburb of Thornton Heath. He made off with £500 ($996.30) worth of goods--but what he really wanted was a PlayStation 3.

The site This is London Local reports that the perpetrator brandished a handgun at two terrified female employees and demanded that they give him a PlayStation 3. Problem was, the store apparently didn't have any PS3s, so the disappointed thief asked for an Xbox 360 instead.

After taking the console, he helped himself to £60 ($119) from the till and a selection of games from the shelf on his way out. Nobody was hurt in the incident, although there was a delay in the investigation as police ended up in the wrong store due to a "mix-up."

Though it was made public today, the robbery actually took place at around 7 p.m. on April 14. Any witnesses in the area are asked to contact Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555111

Source?

And honestly... damn. I mean, PS3s are everywhere here. Stores are having a helluva time selling the stupid things, and this moron couldn't scout out his hit first? I assume its roughly the same in Britain.

Gosh, i feel sorry for the thieft. He didn't get a pretty ps3 and instead got stuck with a xbox 360 that could explode any minute. I wonder what games he stole.
