Detroit, Michigan- A teen patron attempting to purchase a copy of Microsoft’s eagerly awaited, “Gears of War” was assaulted while waiting in line at a local Gamestop Video Game store. The 15 year-old was beaten by a 36 year-old waiting in line, also. Apparently, an argument ensued after the cashier claimed there were no more copies available. The 36 year-old named “Deion” started yelling and tried to cut in line in an attempt to purchase the last copy and a brawl started. The older customer sent a barrage of fists and harsh language at the younger patron. The police were then called. “Deion” was arrested for aggravated assault and is currently awaiting arraignment at a local correctional facility. The 15 year-old was taken to a local hospital for several wounds to the head and neck. The final copy of the game is being held as evidence.

    I’m sure the cops will need to hold onto that “evidence” for at while. Well, at least until they’re done playing – oops, sorry I mean ‘investigating’.

    Oh, BTW, if anyone happens to run across an available copy of the game, please let me know. I pre-ordered a copy, but am now being told that all retailers received less than their pre-order quota. So the earliest they said it “might” be able to be shipped out would be Saturday.

    Violence in video games!  Assholes in stores!  The two great tastes that bumblefuck together!

    Seriously, I gotta pick this game up – we should respark the LIVE fever for it…
