Rockstar Games sending out promotional weapons

Word on the street has it that those wacky folks over at Rockstar Games are sending out promotional Grand Theft Auto IV metal bats, to encourage the gift giving aspects of the game. Popular Mechanics reported getting one the in the mail along with a press release saying “‘Tis the Season To Swing Big and Go GRAND.” We don’t think they actually mean going on a grand crime spree. But try telling that to the teenagers arrested last week in New Hyde Park, NY. After beating and robbing at least three victims the group was caught and said they learned it from watching Niko Bellic. We hope the writers at Popular Mechanics don’t get any crazy ideas.
