The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

A Yorkshire man has been jailed for five years for operating a chipping service for games consoles.

Aamer Ali, 26, was certainly a busy bee - he also sold counterfeit games and DVDs and was a fence for stolen TVs and laptops.

At his arrest he was found to have more than 1,000 counterfeit DVDs, £14,000 in cash, 128 chipped computer games consoles, 16 stolen TV sets and 348 stolen laptops, the Halifax Evening Courier reports. And let's not forget the 342 stolen Tomb Raider Games.

The police say the seizure was the world's biggest haul of illegally chipped consoles.
