A thief has stolen several copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops from a printers in Alabama and sold them on to local gamers, one of whom managed to upload to footage from the game to YouTube before Activision pounced.
Its not the sort of clandestine activity you would normally associate with Black Ops, but we assume there was at least some level of stealth involved. A printing press in Alabama was producing packaging for Call of Duty: Black Ops last week when a thief swiped several copies of the game.
To add insult to injury, some footage of the stolen packaging and game disks was then posted to YouTube, along with a few snippets of in-game footage. Having not seen the footage we can’t comment on the gameplay but we imagine it including some Ops. Probably Black ones.
Activision lawyers reacted swiftly and YouTube has removed the footage. No word on where those discs have gone, though.
