The Beijing Times reports that he had not slept, eaten or moved from his PC when he suddenly collapsed and slipped into a coma on Monday evening. The man had spent a vast amount of money, a reported $1,500 on internet gaming over the past month and was rushed to a nearby clinic, but was unfortunately pronounced dead a shot time afterwards. This highlight’s China’s increasing internet addiction where reports suggest it has risen to more than 30 million.

    Sounds to me like he was doing internet GAMBLING…big difference from online gaming.
