Young man fakes his own abduction over a “Nintendo computer”

Every so often, there is one crazy story that is related to video games and can really make someone scratch his head in confusement. One of the latest examples comes from a young man named Yang, who conspired with two other men to fake his own kidnapping. Police captured the two “kidnapers” after the 10,000 yuan ransom was taken from an ATM machine. Yang later admitted that he was hoping he would be able to extort money from his parents, as they were refusing to purchase a “Nintendo computer” for him. I assume that the “Nintendo computer” is referring to the Wii, unless Yang was actually looking for a Famicom!
