Police in Vietnam have arrested a 13-year-old boy accused of murdering and robbing an 81-year-old woman for money to play online games, a police official said Tuesday. Dinh The Dan was arrested on Sunday at his home in Nam Dinh province, 80 kilometers south of Hanoi, according to local policeman Nguyen Duy Duong.

the kid was pressured to continue playing by his friends and he killed the old lady for only 6.2$ to feed his game. omfg the world is going crazy, out of curiosity game bad or humanity bad?

100,000 dong = 6.2 dollars? Well they shouldn't play if they're so poor. The game is not bad, it is simply the way in which it is handled. Do you call a gun bad when it's used to kill an innocent, or do you call it good if it kills a militant whose only goal in life is to murder you or someone you know?

That qualifies as one of the most ill informed, arse-hole-ish things I've heard on these boards. the dollar value of a countries currency has very little to do with its economy or how well-off the people are. The Yen, the national currency of Japan, is currently valued at something like 122.67 to one U.S. dollar and Japan is considered to be one of the most powerful economies in the world.

Nowhere in the article does it say the kid is from a poor background, for all we know the kids parents could have stopped giving him money because he was wasting it playing games.
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

that is just bad all it would have cost him was 647 or not being able to play his game for about a week.
(and i really hope jack Thompson dosen't find out about this.)

Yes, because magical spells and hexes influenced this kid to kill that woman. ::)

That doesn't matter. Because the video games are in the story somewhere, all those who reckon they're the bane of mankind will be in an uproar, trying to get video games banned and whatnot.
