Father Stabbed by Son for Offering FIFA 09 Advice

By Nick Simberg "The latest video game-related violent act isn't centering around a violent game at all, but around EA's E-rated FIFA 09.

An Italian man referred to only as "Fabrizio R." had bought his son the game a few days ago as a birthday present. After offering his son some pointers on the game, an argument broke out, leading the father to turn off his son's television in response to his behavior.

The 16-year-old son - Mario - then went to the kitchen, retrieved a knife, and returned to stab his father in the neck.

Surely a better reason would be because his dad didn’t buy him FIFA10?

Welcome to my ignore list. Your comment does not make you look "hip" or "cool". It makes you look like a jackass. It would have been best if you had simply not typed anything at all.

What would have happened if he got him FIFA 10?...or perhaps he stabbed him because he got FIFA 09.

Anyhow...sad story none the less.......but just goes to show how messed up some people's priorities are.

sad story indeed.
And I thought MW2/GTA 4 were bad games for teens to play, seems like FIFA outranks them =/

It happened 4 days ago, it took some time to reach international interest LOL
They were playing on a Playstation.

mushroomwig3245d ago

To be fair, whatever console they were playing on isn't really important.

OmegaSlayer3245d ago

Well, it's only strange that they didn't use the said console in the media to start a battle against a console instead of a battle against bad habits, and lacks of education by parents.

Not true according to chubear.

Apparently things like this only happen on the xbox because only the xbox has violent halo loving teens who just love to kill each other. Man was he right..
