A man in Washington state went online to threaten violence if a Palo Alto-based video game company doesn’t refund him the $12,000 he spent while playing their game, according to police.
Around 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday (May 15), police got the report that a man had made the threats on a message board online about the video game company Machine Zone, whose games include “Game of War: Fire Age,” “Mobile Strike” and “Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire.”
Sgt. David Lee said the man threatened to go on a “killing spree,” noting that was Lee’s own paraphrase.
