Kid Jacked for XBOX 360


A 17-year-old boy who was one of the first in this city to buy one of the much-anticipated new Xbox 360 video games was assaulted and robbed as he left the store, police say.

The boy was attacked by two males around 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, when stores nationwide began selling the new Xbox system. The attackers took the game valued at about $450 and fled on foot.

The boy suffered minor injuries to his face, police said.

People lined up at stores around the country to get one of the games. The new consoles also can play music, display photos and show DVDs.

Most retailers have refused to say how many of the consoles they have in stock, but Microsoft has said that an ambitious plan to launch the console worldwide within a few weeks will mean fewer of the games initially in North America.

Back in school, we used to get jacked in Spanish Harlem for 8Ball jackets and practically shot for the Fly Jordans. I don't care what town your in, if your walking around with a $400 piece of electronics at midnight, you can't be that supprised.
