US software behemoth Microsoft has doubled a cash reward for information on the whereabouts of a Canadian boy who ran away from home after his father took away his Xbox game console, it said Tuesday.
Brandon Crisp, 15, took off on his bicycle from his Barrie, Ontario home on October 13 -- Canada's Thanksgiving holiday -- and rode east along an old rail line.
He has not been seen since.
His father told local media he had removed Brandon's Xbox, built by Microsoft, after noticing changes in behavior since Brandon started playing "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" online.

COD4 is an awesome game. As a lifelong gamer I know that this is the best battlefield simulator ever, bar none. Just for any non-gamers who don`t know.
That said, it is also very addictive. And the affects of long hours spent playing, rather than doing other, better, more constructive things, no doubt has an effect on the psyche and the body overall.
