Queues and stabbings: People go mental for iPhones and GTA V

People are crackers about new releases of technology. We've seen the queues for Apple products and, even though the 5C and 5S won't be released until September 20th, queues have already started cropping up in the UK.

One American fan had, according to the Indy, started queuing up 4 days before Apple even announced their new devices, not to mention the weirdo in Japan who started a one-man queue on the 12th September, telling reporters that he had used his annual leave to get the first handset in the country.

Of course, they could just wait a bit and get one when the fuss has died down.

See, not all people who are FIRST have a good time. Last night, a man was reportedly stabbed and robbed as he walked home from an Asda as he had a copy of GTA V. The muggers will be able to go off and play a game where they can pull out a victim's teeth and smash their kneecaps off.

People aren't like this about films and fridge freezers are they?

    The guy who got stabbed was robbed because he had a bag of shopping. Not specifically for GTA. Don't sensationalize.

    They also took his mobile phone and wallet, but the blogs and news outlets that want a good headline from it seem to ignore this.

    Did he have a pack of Parma Violets in his shopping? I reckon the crooks were after those.

    It's London. It'll be immigrant on immigrant crime, just like you see in the news every day. They don't even drink Tennant's.

    @Nazi, yeah but how can the Daily Heil blame violence on having a mobile and a wallet?

    Can’t see how you cam blame GTA V, they wouldn’t have had the chance to play it yet therefore warping their minds and making them violent

    Just wanting to play this game made the muggers violent. That's how potent it's mind altering properties are on the nation's youth.
