In China, an online video game player was stabbed and killed by another over a dispute over a virtual sword. Apparently, the sword was lent to the victim and he then sold it for $870 without informing the other guy. When the other guy found out about the sale, he went to the police to report the “theft.” However, there are no laws for virtual theft in China or elsewhere for that matter. The victim promised to pay the guy back, but he didn’t pay it back fast enough. After running out of patience the wronged gamer stabbed and killed him. You can’t make this stuff up!


  1. You make fun, but this is serious shit. Especially if the sword was +4 vs. Ogres. Those are hard to come by…

  2. Oh for cry’n out loud!! This shit just makes the mentally unstable, more unstable! There is nothing “serious” about this, except the whacked individuals that take this seriously!

    Good riddens. One down… Now where’s the repeat button so this keeps happening?
