The second hand gaming business can obviously be quite serious, with two North Carolina men found guilty of murder over a used Xbox 360 console. In Christmas of 2009, Justen Jarel King and Christopher Andrew Alexander headed to the house of Jason Lee Smith and roommate Emanuel Gantlin in Fayetteville, NC.

Gantlin had purchased an Xbox 360 console from Alexander, but now wanted the console back. So Alexander took King with him and headed to Smith's home, found the Xbox 360 and then started to disconnect the cables from the TV.


King pulled out a gun, cocked it, and it fired - hitting Smith in the chest. Smith didn't survive the shot to the chest and died. Both King and Alexander have pleaded guilty to second degree murder with King sentenced to more than 13 years in prison, while Alexander will see 10 years behind bars.
