    Man Dies After 40-Hour Diablo 3 Session in Taiwan


    Diablo 3 has “claimed” another life, as after a man from North America died because of a marathon 72-hour session spent with the role-playing dungeon crawler, an 18-year-old Taiwanese man has also passed away after playing the game for an estimated 40 hours.

    Diablo III came out two months ago and has attracted tens of millions of players to its intense experience.

    Sadly, like many other addictive games, it wasn’t long before incidents happened to its players.

    First, we heard of a man from the U.S. who was found dead after spending a whole weekend with the RPG.

    Now, CVG reports of an 18-year-old man from Taiwan who died after playing Diablo 3 for 40 uninterrupted hours.
