Two men in Gloucester who went out of their way to make sure that they were one of the first people to own the new Xbox One console were robbed of their goods just minutes after purchasing.

After queuing outside of a store for the midnight release, the two men aged 25 and 27 were walking back to their car at around 12:15am when they were attacked by robbers. The 25-year-old was left with injuries to his face whilst the 27-year-old was knocked unconscious.

Police are currently looking for the suspects.

This isn’t the first game-related crime to hit the news. Earlier this year, a man was stabbed for his recently purchased GTA V game. It’s crazy how desperate people get when it comes to video games.

Maybe the guys should check if JME still has some consoles to spare
