Xbox Stealing Fail

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/105/1057570p1.html

Man steals xbox 360 then logs into live, and getting busted.

Quote:
December 28, 2009 - A Bronx man who stole a Xbox 360 console and other valuables was later caught soon after the thief logged into the system's online account, the The New York Post reports.

Detectives were able to trace the perpetrator's IP address back to his grandmother's home, where they would later find numerous stolen electronic property.

"On the day of the burglary, the victim used another Xbox and saw his system was already online," Detective John Hynes said. "At the house, we found Xboxes, PlayStations, GPS units, laptops -- a total of 53 items, including stolen credit cards."

Jeremiah Gilliam, 22, is being charged with grand larceny.

I believe this is a most curious thing to do, unless he had a bunch of stuff up for auction on Ebay.

It's a beautiful thing when criminals get caught by their own stupidity.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

it is not a cry of joy.

Should game manufacturers rate these events as a marketing success?
