    At the end of the day the guy murdered someone for something that didn't exsist in the real world,something else for the ban this, that and everything else they don't like to get hold of and blame the sins of the world on computers.

    All spelling mistakes and grammatical errors in my post's are intentional.

    Destroying the rest of your life over a game...... I think the worst I have ever done is throw my controller, and I haven't done that in years

    He should be Hung. But I suppose you just have to live with the name you are born with.

    well that Zhu Caoyuan did take the (big time) piss by selling it

    i wounder if the new weapon owner knows about the real blood shed caused just for his virtual weapon

    and if Qui broke into Zhus house
    why didnt he steal the PC and sell it for about £500?

    I have a feeling the game itself is incidental to this man. He could just as easily have snapped over losing a promotion to someone else.. It was a feeling of injustice. Silly as it may be.
    Many a murder has been committed after something not worth considering boils up into rage. Every day people stress themselves out over nothing. Look at how some people explode over being cut up on the road or seeing someone push in a queue.


    @ boab.

    -4 out of 10 for that one

    The story I was directed to from the link made no mention of the size of his penis, but I suspect if he was "hung" he probably would be more popular with the ladies and would have been spending time with them instead of playing video games

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    if you lent somebody something like a camcorder IRL and they sold it for £500, then refused to give you any profit. can you see how pissed off this guy is then?

    it just shows you, be careful who you lend your virtual sword to kids.

    The thing I find most strange is not the rage / murder thing. As vidcc said people can lose the rag for reasons which seem out of all proportion.

    However someone was willing to pay £500 for a virtual sword, which suggest to me a market for such "things". Is this common, has the world run mad, why was I not informed.

    Seems to me they should have given him a virtual life sentence instead of a suspended death sentence....
