    thats crazy how long they got away with it

    fair enough a person returning a game, but not coming into the shop day in day out buying more games and returning the games he bought yesterday - you think it would twig suspicion

    We do, its Asda :rotfl:

    Seems to be a lot of negative MS events kicking off recently.

    Maybe MS are in on a 'Any publicity is good publicity ' crusade...

    Oh the conspiracy.:thumbsup:

    Personally speaking I wouldn't call people stealing Xbox games negative to Microsoft.

    Infact I would even go as far to say its positive as these people could have stolen anything Wii games/Blu-Rays/DVD's etc but chose Xbox360 games.

    I remember Big W in Australia (it was run by woolworths so I expect they are bust to). It was very similar to Walmart and is in no way comparable to Asda. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_W


    This news isn't new, people have been running similar scams for years. I've even heard people returning 360 consoles to Walmart with the console replaced with a yellow pages..
