116,283 pirated PSX games seized in German airport


From Reuters newswire:

"..FRANKFURT--Airport customs officials here said Monday they had confiscated 2.5 tons of pirate software for Sony video game consoles in their biggest haul of forged software yet.

The airport's customs authority said it had seized 11 crates of CD-ROMS worth almost 10.5 million marks ($5.2 million) last December on a flight from Thailand following a tip-off from French officials. The crates contained 116,283 PlayStation games, including "Tomb Raider," "Resident Evil" and "Mortal Kombat."

"It's going to be destroyed," said a customs official at Frankfurt airport, one of Europe's busiest hubs. News of the seizure was only released Monday because the customs officials first had to verify the software was indeed pirated.
