Angry Customer Destroys An Xbox One In Store After Losing Game Of FIFA

There's throwing a hissy fit in your bedroom after conceding a last minute goal, and then there's this bloke, who decided to destroy an Xbox One in a GAME-ON store in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

The unnamed customer, who was taking on owner Azeem Hussain, unplugged the console, held it over his head and threw it on the ground after conceding a second goal in El Clasico.

As you can see in the footage below, he then stamped on the Xbox and walked out the store, leaving the console 'completely ruined'.

Mr Hussain was shocked with the customer's actions, and revealed he later apologised for his actions, but didn't have the money to pay for it.

"I was gobsmacked,' said the store owner, whose shop Game-on has been open for over 13 years.

'But I understand the rage FIFA can cause, I am guilty of smashing a few controllers myself. I play my customers regularly. Nobody has ever reacted like that before.

'He's been in and apologised. He didn't have the money to pay for it but I let it slide. However, He isn't ever playing FIFA in the store again,'

We've all been there. You're playing an intense game of FIFA and concede the most ridiculous goal known to man.

Controllers are thrown and rage-quitting ensues. Whether you are getting smashed 7-0, or suffer defeat by the most narrow of margins - it's an entirely natural reaction to quit a game.

But the art of rage-quitting is not merely limited to your average fun-loving games, as a pro FIFA player proved in the FIFA e-world Cup.

It's the biggest stage for FIFA players, but when his opponent, Ilyamitkin was time-wasting and running down the clock as he looked to seal a tight 1-0 victory, 2x German champion Erhan Kayman, aka Dr Erhan, closed the application and walked off.

The VFB Stuttgart representative was subsequently disqualified from the competition.

Rage quitting is still very real.
