Shanghai gamer Qiu Chengwei killed player Zhu Caoyuan when he discovered he had sold a "dragon sabre" he had been loaned, said the china Daily.
Mr Chengwei only got the powerful virtual weapon shortly before it was sold for 7,200 yuan (£460) or about $800US.
Before the attack Mr Chengwei told police about the theft who said the weapon was not real property.
