Burglars dig for Xbox 360 consoles

Determined burglars stole 13 Xbox 360 game consoles after they sledge hammered and dug through the back wall of a Jacksonville GameStop game store. The Florida Times-Union reports the burglars were smart and cut the power along with taking the video camera tapes before dashing off with more than a dozen consoles. The store manager believes the thieves were actually after the PlayStation 3, but took the Microsoft console as their consolation prize.

The PlayStation 3 console was launched last month and some units have sold for more than $10,000 on eBay. Online auction prices have steadily dropped since the launch, despite the near absence of any retail consoles.
