Video games are so life like these days, people are now confusing joy sticks for real weapons.
A Florida man was arrested over the weekend after he tried to use a Playstation remote control to stick up a convenience store in St. Petersburg, Bay News 9 reported.
Cameron Pittman, 20, hid the remote control in his pocket and told the cashier it was a gun and that he came for the money, police said.
But much like a scene from the cartoonish world of video games, Pittman's robbery attempt was foiled when a cop walked into the store while the video gamer was holding up the joint.
Pittman, who allegedly used the joystick ploy to pull off a successful robbery moments earlier at a sandwich shop, immediately dropped the Playstation controller and surrendered.
Game over with no possibility of continues.
Pittman is charged with armed robbery and violation of probation.
