Destructoid Exclusive: GameStop robbery caught on tape

GameStop is one of those companies that's never short of enemies, bad press, or disgruntled employees that steal security camera tapes. Check out this video of some ruthless dickwads getting more value from a visit than your Edge card will yield in a lifetime. The trick is to go shopping there after the employees are gone, you see.

I was originally going to title this post "Here's how to rob a GameStop," but you gotta kinda feel bad for them, even if they only gave you 25 bucks for the copy of The Last Remnant that you regrettably paid $60 for yesterday. It's a tough economy. They do what they can, even if it means little Timmy will have to settle for that Doritos game this Christmas.

Anyway, back to the festive holiday pillaging! At the request of the informant, we've withheld the time and location of this impromptu party, but we can reveal that it was pretty recent and various PS3s and Wiis appear to be the target of their operation. It looks like they knew exactly what they were doing, too. Inside job or career crooks?

You knew it was coming: At least somebody walked out with a steal this holiday season from a GameStop. Zing! No wait, a better one: Is the holiday PS3 lineup really worth going to jail for?  Haha, I'm here all night, folks -- show me your genitals.

[Thanks, Satan]
