The world can be an awful place sometimes, unfortunately today is one of those times as we hear that a man has lost his life over a PlayStation 4 games console.

Now I don’t want to drag all that nonsense in about “video games are a bad influence” as this is simply the case of an idiot who thought it would be a good idea to rob someone and murder them in cold blood, the console is just a catalyst to these tragic events.

According to a report over at San Jose Mercury, the man was met by a potential customer after offering to sell his PlayStation 4. When the man met with him to do a deal on the console, the victim was shot multiple times and the customer took the console and ran.

This is just a day after I heard of two teens being beaten badly here in the UK after they were robbed outside a video game store, also involving their PlayStation 4 being stolen from them.

A man in his 20’s is now dead, and San Francisco Police are conducting a search for the suspect, of course if you have any information that may help, you can contact police on 415-575-4444, or alternatively to send a text to TIP411, with the subject line “SFPD”.

Thank you Kotaku for providing us with this information.

    It’s a tragedy. I hope they run the perpetrator to ground very quickly, convict and sentence him then throw the key away. My condolences to his loved ones.
