I got robbed not too long ago. They stole my new ASUS laptop and my girlfriends Toshiba laptop. They also stole my 40" Sony Bravia, xbox 360, new hoodie, and some other random stuff. I can tell you two things: 1: get renters insurance, 2: the cops don't give a shit about your stuff. I had nothing but trouble with the cops. They took forever to get the report right, they labled me as hispanic and not hispanic..i mean honestly..how can I be both? They didn't put the report in my name. They did not collect any evidence even though it was heavily available.

My friend who is majoring in criminal justice found fingerprints and there was a very well defined  foot print on the chair they climbed down on through the window. There was a hair pick outside by the window that was broken in. There was broken shards of window glass around back (prolly fell from their clothes) so they more than likely went through there. The person that called in the robbery, was blind, so he did not see anything. Another person also called it in during the robbery...Still the cops get there late as shit. They were in there for a while because they stole alot. We didn't even get an investigator.

It was a complete joke to the cops. The serial numbers more than likely wont help much. They more than likely wont go to a pawnshop because they need ID and it is a bit risky. Its more likely that it will be sold on craigslist or ebay...or simply kept or sold on the streets.

Get renters insurance. For me it wouldnt have even costed that much, I made the mistake in not getting it either. Now I have it through State Farm and its like 20 bucks a month ofr $5000 or so in coverage. I don't imagine it would be too much of a drastic difference for you. Check into it...try to get a low deductable so you don't have to lose most of the money to the insurance company.

Yes; you'll want to change your PSN password. Be sure to write down your new PS3's serial number and MAC address. Keep that info secure.

Re: HELP!... I'VE JUST BEEN ROBBED..!

Thank you all for the great advice.. Luckily i have a job that pays well so I have another playstation.. The biggest dissapointment besides the money lost is the fact that I had about 75% of final fantasy 13 done with epic ratings, and was really looking forward to seeing how the game ends.. I picked it up at the store earlier, and for a second got exited to see my stats on the playstation only to realize it was showing me the trophies earned and not the saved data..

Those idiots who stole it even stole the stradegy guide to the game.. I hate them so much right now...lol. Another thing was that I had so many pieces of media on there that were personal and entertaining.. Granted the one they stole was an 80gig.. it still held a lot of valuables in there.. From pics and videos from the past two years of me & my girl on all of the trips we go on... To pics of my family that live out of state/country that i saved on the ps3 to make as a slideshow on the tv when im homesick.. To tons and tons of music.. To documentaries that i study for my career & school.. To movies and more movies.. I use torrents so i used to watch all the movies that were in theaters on the playstation in high def..lol. When the ps3 was stolen i had to go back to using vuze on the laptop..

Luckily though i now have the slim 500gig so i have the space.. It's just going to take a lot of time and effort.. But some of the vacation pictures with my girl and i were only on the ps3.. They don't even need it.. It soo pisses me off just thinking about it.. Which reminds me... We had some of the best conversations with each other through the playstation network mail that was saved on there.. She has a ps3 and is on my friends list, so we would pm each other all the time, and all those saved messages are now in the hands of some random thief.. OK.. I'm done venting..lol. Thanks guys.. It means a lot to me that I got some support on this.. Cuz dude is right.. The cops couldn't give a flying Fu** if my ish was found or not...

Help me understand this, You're upset because someone stole from you?

Correct me if I am wrong, but were you not doing the same? (your own post quoted) Torrents??

Hmm....
