Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in PlayStation Case

January 30, 2009 -

It's bad enough that rogue CIA agent Harold Nicholson (left) sold out his country for money. But it's simply unconscionable that Nicholson dragged his son into his traitorous world.

The New York Times reports that the FBI has charged Nicholson and his 24-year-old son Nathan with espionage.

From his jail cell, the elder Nicholson allegedly recruited his son to make contact with his former Russian handlers:

Prosecutors said Nathan Nicholson, a former Army paratrooper, had returned from his visits with the Russians with at least $35,000 in cash, some of it in a PlayStation video game case.

 

The money was intended in part to settle a “pension” that Harold Nicholson said was owed him from his days as a C.I.A. spy for the Russians before his arrest in 1996, the prosecutors said.

They knew it was strange when they saw someone actually owning a PS3.

Evidently, they put nickels and dimes in the Wii box... weird.

He tried using a 360, but the box broke down on his way to the airport.

Although, "Father-son Spy Duo" sounds like the makings of the best film EVER.

Oh god I can see this being used in a movie.

Q: ... Bond, if you look over here you'll see a case that contains a game for the Playstation 3.

Bond: What will I use that for?

Q: That's a question even we can't answer... it's really just some rubbish that none of us have any use for.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

Naw it all game related dont you see?  The games make us do all the bad things that happen in society (they are also apparently responsible for global warming and tsunami's). 

Sorry I cannot maintain that level of stupidity for long. 

On a more serious (and grim) note.  If this rogue agent's whereabouts are known I am all for ending his miserable existance.  I am with Dante (the Inferno) on this one.  The lowest levels of hell are reserved for betrayers (and possibly a special place for jackie thompson).

I can´t imagine them using "Videogames made us do it" in this one...

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

I can imagine Jack Thompson doing that

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

pfff what a rubbish spy.

 

That beard is blatently a disguise, its a different colour. Maybe he just couldnt find the right pen to draw it on with.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

He's American! If he was a proper Russian Spy, he wouldn't have been discovered until after his death.

Probably used a PS3 case because its bulkier.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

He should of said that that was the money he saved by switching to Geico!

All he needed was a pair of eyes to put on it...  Those are only a few cents at a craft store.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

The reason they put the money in a PS3 case was only because nobody would have stolen it.

Re: Younger Half of Father-son Spy Duo Smuggled Russian $$$ in

I laughed so hard at your comment that a bit of pee came out!! Thanks a lot!! And yes, I totally agree with you :)

The Wii might not smuggle money, but it certainly prints it! ;D

MonteThough from a business side, i would agree with the article. While it would be smarter for developers to slow down, you can't expect EA, Activision or ubisoft to do something like that. Nintnedo's gotta get the third party back.02/28/2015 - 4:36pm
MonteThough it does also help that nintendo's more colorful style is a lot less reliant on graphics than more realistic games. Wind Waker is over 10 years old and still looks good for its age.02/28/2015 - 4:33pm
MonteWith the Wii, nintnedo had the right idea. Hold back on shiny graphics and focus on the gameplay experience. Unfortunatly everyone else keeps pushing for newer graphics and it matters less and less each generation. I can barely notice the difference02/28/2015 - 4:29pm
MonteON third party developers; i kinda think they should slow down to nintendo's pace. They bemoan the rising costs of AAA gaming, but then constantly push for the best graphics which is makes up a lot of those costs. Be easier to afford if they held back02/28/2015 - 4:27pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/02/28/the-world-is-nintendos-if-only-theyd-take-it/ I think this is a interesting op-ed, but yeah it kind of is stating the obvious.02/28/2015 - 2:52pm
prh99The government probably doesn't need an app, but I was think more along the lines of a company that was going to sell the collected info. “If you're not paying for the product, you are the product” sometimes even if you pay.02/28/2015 - 1:50pm
E. Zachary KnightWhat better way for the government to keep track of you than to get you to install an app that lets you insult the government.02/28/2015 - 11:03am
prh99No, but I looked it up and it's basically spyware. Their privacy policy says their apps tracks among other things your location and browsing habits via cookies.02/28/2015 - 8:20am
Ryan RardinHas anyone here heard of an app called iCitizen? It's basically Yelp for politicians.02/28/2015 - 5:16am
Andrew EisenAh, not linked in the way you (and everyone else) want and expect. That's true.02/27/2015 - 10:06pm
Matthew Wilsonthey are not linked in a way that tracks purchases though. the fact that they have to send a code for the other system shows that they are not linked in the way it counts.02/27/2015 - 9:39pm
Andrew EisenAccounts are already linked. Have been for quite a while. Also, Mario vs. Donkey Kong was announced as a cross-buy title during last January's Nintendo Direct.02/27/2015 - 9:25pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.vg247.com/20…/…/27/olli-olli-3ds-wii-u-cross-buy/ I wounder if this is a sign that Nintendo may finally link accounts across the 3ds/wiiu in the near future.02/27/2015 - 9:18pm

ZippyDSMleeDungeons was a so bad so good game to me so I been keeping up with its sequel which will more of a Dungeon Keeper clone. As for pre order out of 7 preorders I was not burnt by 2... Add my contempt of most of modern game design.Ya I have all kinds of hurt.02/27/2015 - 8:40pm
MechaTama31I don't even want to know...02/27/2015 - 8:22pm
ZippyDSMleeFun? I can do fun…. I think LOL. Dungeons 2 is on preorder but not via steam... >> Hell I am breaking all kinds of personal butthurt rules to even THINK about pre order...02/27/2015 - 8:12pm
E. Zachary KnightHad some fun discussions about that dumb dress on Facebook. I opened the original picture in GIMP and sampled the colors and determined them to be Blue and Gold. People still say I am wrong.02/27/2015 - 7:41pm
