Ryder was told to meet with a police officer posing as a hit man at a hotel. That's where he offered the undercover officer his stepfather's new pickup truck as payment for killing his parents," the article states.

You idiots making this into a Playstation joke are all losers. This is a messed up story about a kid who tried to kill his parents and you joke about the PS3. Gets lives losers.

whats wrong with people? this type of things give bad rep for the game industry

And it gives Jack Thompson another reason why games should be banned. It just sucks theres sick people out in the world, this kid didn't have to do this, but he did because he probably has a miserable social life. I'm just glad he didn't use his sick mind to plan out a school shooting, just because his Playstation 3 (?) was taken away.

Omegasyde4002d ago

Wow. He is going to get messed up in prison.

WAR_MACHINE774002d ago

unfortunately he probably won't go to prison since he's being tried as a juvenile

A kid punching his Mom in the face over Halo 3, another kid arrested for drawing violent Halo 3 stuff at school, and now this in the span of less than a week? Why don't these parents KNOW their kids? They ought to know their 17 year old by now... If they did, they'd know he's unstable or potentially unstable and not the type to get an addictive entertainment source for him in the first place. Gaming was obviously this kid's life, and his parents took it from him, and he acted accordingly with his fubar priorities... Crazy Kids + Retarded Parents = Media field day
I'm sick of this crap.

Apparently they did know their kid in this case and he had a history of bad behavior. I suppose it was the last attempt to try and straighten out the kid. If the parents didn't know the kid, why do you think the mother pressed the judge to try him as an adult? They know how screwed up the kid is.

last month a boy killed his older brother over losing in a videogame match

TruthbeTold4001d ago (Edited 4001d ago )

...then what are they doing getting him something that he'll go nuts about if/when they take it away? It's a free country, but man, should everyone be free to have children? I'd like to think that I'd never have it any other way, but this is ridiculous.

you saw what the PS3 did to that baby in the commercial now this? Its just the beginning.
