A man killed over a video game.

A man Has been stabbed to death in Manila following a row between two groups of men playing the popular shooting video game “Counter-Strike’.
The quarrel between the men playing the game in which gamers playing either terrorists or anti-terror officers try to kill their opponents erupted in an internet café, police investigator Noel Ibanez said.
The teams had bet 300 pesos (US 7.15) on the outcome of their competition on Monday, but when one side won an argument broke out over payment.

A member of the winning team, still angry over the dispute, later followed losing player Eric Cristobal to his home and stabbed him to death.

Internet cafes are popular in the Philippines,  mainly among young people who pack into play computer games, often for hours on end.
