A Norwegian mass murderer has threatened to go on a hunger strike for better living conditions, demanding higher quality video games and an improved living arrangement.

In a letter the Agence France-Presse received Friday, Anders Breivik — described by the AFP as a right-wing extremist who killed 77 in a 2011 bombing and shooting rampage — described his current conditions in prison as "torture."

Breivik, serving a 21-year sentence in southeast Norway, reportedly said he'd starve himself if his Playstation 2 console wasn't upgraded to a PS3 "with access to more adult games that I get to choose myself."

"Other inmates have access to adult games while I only have the right to play less interesting kids games. One example is 'Rayman Revolution,' a game aimed at three year olds," the 35-year-old convicted killer wrote, according to the AFP.

Saying he has behaved in an "exemplary fashion," Breivik also demanded a more comfortable sofa or sitting device, instead of his "painful" chair and better conditions for his daily walk.

The mass murderer even asked for a new computer to replace what he called a "worthless typewriter with technology dating back to 1873."

"You've put me in hell ... and I won't manage to survive that long. You are killing me," he reportedly wrote in November.

"If I die, all of Europe's right-wing extremists will know exactly who it was that tortured me to death ... That could have consequences for certain individuals in the short term but also when Norway is once again ruled by a facist regime in 13 to 40 years from now," he warned.

In his letter, Breivik also billed himself as a "political prisoner" and "human rights activist."
