Burglars stole 13 Xbox 360 consoles in Florida after they sledge hammered and dug through the back wall of a Jacksonville GameStop 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.
