This thought just occured to me today when i was walking through target. I notice that the console type video games(xbox, PS3, wii) are always locked behind a glass cabinet. Is this because generally the people that play console video games are theives? The movies are not locked up. The computer video games are not locked up. Just the console games. Are console video games like heroin to people that they feel like they need to steal them? I also wonder if its just todays day & age. When i was young, we had the ATARI 2600 for our console game. Games were about 30 dollars each. They were never hidden behind a glass case. When Nintendo came out in 1985...that wasnt locked up either. But today, they are all behind the glass case. What happened in the last 20 years that these stores feel like so many theives are out there, they need to lock them up?
