FIVE-YEAR-OLD FINDS PORN ON REFURBISHED NINTENDO 3DS FROM GAMESTOP

Five-year-old Brandon Giles must have been excited to receive a Nintendo 3DS for Christmas — at least, he was until he turned it on. According to 9News, Giles’ father bought a refurbished 3DS from GameStop (GME) in Colorado for his son. However, when his son turned it on and started poking around, he found nine pornographic images of two people in a bed and asked his brother to help him erase them. That’s when the father gave GameStop a call. GameStop’s response was that the images were most likely left over from its previous owner and an employee failed to properly wipe out the data on the 3DS before re-stocking it. “We have a rigorous quality control process in place to ensure that existing content is removed from all devices before they are re-sold,”

GameStop said in a statement issued from its corporate office. “Out of millions of transactions each year, ones like this happen very rarely. Our number one priority is to make this right for our customer.”

The bigger question many people are asking is, why would anyone take pornographic photos with the 3DS’s terrible low-res cameras? We may never know the answer.

The question that must be asked: "So?"

If you don't think China owns the US you are dumber than I thought...

The key to argue with Brick is to provide more rhetoric and less information in fewer words than his did.

*waits for the lawsuit*

Delete them and move on. Don't take it to the media and make a big deal out of nothing.

More like "doubly so after he turned it on"

But, you know, nudity is such a terrible thing...

Don't take anything I say seriously! EVER!

Why do people have to go to the media with every little thing?

Nobody cares what you found on your Nintendo. Never complain about free porn, that's blasphemy.

Maybe the previous owner wanted to see if it was bigger in 3D

Why do Americans think porn will do more damage than guns?

It's the whacky conservatives who believe that.


I read another article about this and one of the quotes from the father was "He can't un-see this!"

Give me a break! It was just a few pictures. I'm sure your stupid kid will be fine.

Edit:



Nice water works, Buddy!

Well I don't know about you but I wouldn't particularly want my five year old standing at the end of my bed watching me have sex. But what the hell, it's just a few pictures in his/her head, right? But it can never be unseen. It would be one thing if the pics on the refurbished Nintendo 3DS were 'only' nudity but they weren't.. Why not hand a five year old a copy of Hustler magazine........I'm sure those pics can also be 'unseen', right?

As a responsible parent, I sure as hell don't want a young child of mine turning on some game console and finding porn on it. Love how the majority of those who find nothing wrong with the images being viewed by a kindergartner don't even have any children.

Responsible parents monitor what their children watch on television.

I don't have children yet but I know what I believe in and what values I'll instil in my children.

Nudity and sex in general are such a non issue with me. If my child ever got a hold of nudie mags the last thing I would be is upset or furious.

What's so bad about nakedness and sexual activity? What reason does it have to be so taboo?

Don't take anything I say seriously! EVER!
