A London man who bought a copy of Grand Theft Auto V when it went on sale at midnight was mugged on his way home from the store.
The unnamed 23-year-old man was "hit with a brick, stabbed and stripped of his mobile phone, watch and his copy of the game."
Luckily, he is in stable condition at a local hospital. Three men were arrested in connection with the crime.
