Italian daily newspaper, Il Corriere della Sera, reports that a 15-year-old Italian lad known only as 'Mario', stabbed his own father in the neck due to a disagreement over FIFA 09.
The paper reports his mother saying, "I saw Mario come back into the room, he seemed calm, he went to the sink and I noticed him washing a knife. Then my husband came into the room with a hand round his neck, dripping blood."
Apparently dad had been trying to explain tactics to the obviously 'troubled' teen, before turning the TV off.
Mario's mum continued, "Mario is obsessed. He's forever playing on his PlayStation, and we bought him FIFA
2009 because we didn't want him playing violent games."
You've got to figure that there's more than meets the eye to this one.
