A Vicksburg man was robbed at gunpoint by an acquaintance he invited to play video games at his residence, police Capt. Bobby Stewart said.

The two men were playing video games in the 100 block of Eastover Drive at 12:31 p.m. Monday when the robber pulled a gun and stole a PlayStation3 valued at $200, two video games valued at $40 each and $400, Stewart said.
