Fatal stabbing over Sony PlayStation

A 31-year-old San Francisco man was stabbed to death Monday night in a dispute over a Sony PlayStation, authorities said Tuesday.

Hani Attia was killed about 9 p.m. at Seventh and Market streets by a man who apparently took the PlayStation from one of two women trying to sell it. The women chased after the man, and one of them got it back.

Attia confronted the man who took the device. In a scuffle, Attia was stabbed. His friends took him to Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, where he died. The attacker fled.

I think out of respect for the dead and their family, everyone should avoid turning this post into another flame war.

It's not like they'll ever see it mind you, but that's not the point.

Sure there were shootings while ppl were in line, but this is the 1st fatality. And to boot the killing was up close and personal. Bravo Sony! You're on your way.

What does Sony have to do with it? how is it their fault? your last comment doesn't make sense.

Around launch time the police caught one of the guys who stoled a PS3, and they went to his house and as he opened the door they thought he was armed, when infact it was the PS3 controller and they shot him dead inside the house infront of his friend.

I'm not blaming Sony I'm congratulating them. Any news of ppl willing to murder others for their console is good news for Sony. I wasn't being sarcastic in any way.

You have no respect for the dead, people kill for cigars and chewing gum. This is another casualty that ends up with people looking to everything else but the fact itself and placing the blame in everything but the killer.
My condolences to the family.
