Family In Tears After Finding Porn On Nintendo 3DS This Christmas

3ds_close1

A family were left devastated after finding pornographic images on a secondhand Nintendo 3DS bought from GameStop for Christmas. 5-year-old Braydon Giles was shocked to see the images on the Nintendo 3DS which was brought for him by Santa. The father immediately contacted GameStop to express his disappointment that the Nintendo 3DS hadn’t been checked. You can watch the emotional video right here.

  1. As a parent and former video game child. I remember that my parents knew/know nothing of video games. We as gamers think how easy it is to check this. Yes GameStop should’ve done their part. But just to be 100% sure this doesn’t happen we know what to look for as gamers. These non video gaming parents put their dollars and faith in GameStop.

    1. Completely true, but at the very least, if GameStop are selling it as “refurbished” rather than just Pre-owned, surely they would format the system’s memory first.

  2. Sometimes I cry as well when I watch porn…
    But come on, seriously? What’s so horrible about a child seeing sexual images anyway. That’s basically raising them to be scared of the most natural thing in the world. I’d be more concered about my son crying after seeing those photos than anything else.

    1. I’m glad that at least you were brave enough to actually say just how horrible it must be to find porn on your videogame.

      Don’t you go and change the subject saying that “If it happened with me, I would have kept as a secret, HERPIDY DERP!” Fuck you, we’re talking about 5 year old kids here, who doesn’t even know what does masturbation mean. When you’re told that Santa brought you a Nintendo 3DS, I THINK you would be a little bit traumatized if your new portable contained porn pictures of an unknown person. You’re probably not complaining enough because it’s a girl’s picture, but just imagine you, on your innocent 5 years, getting your super awesome Nintendo 3DS, and when you check up the camera functionalities you find pictures of a big headed PENIS!?

      To that boy, December 25th sure lost a bit of the Christmas magic. Am I and this anonymous really the only people who actually felt pity on that poor boy?

      1. 100% agreed. Parents choose Nintendo for their kids because it is family friendly. I can’t imagine what that would have done to my Christmas if that happened to me when I was younger.

        It’s ridiculous that this is what the world has come to. That we have to check every used digital device we have for porn before giving it to kids. The idiot should have deleted his crap before he sold it. Gamestop should have wiped the memory. The parents probably should have checked it. I think it is ridiculous that they would have to though.

        I feel bad for that little guy.

  12. Holy moly… I don’t know if that’s just me being European and German, but I really don’t get why people react like this. Especially the father should act very, very different. Yeah, it’s porn. That’s not nice. But he should laugh if off and say to his son that it’s not that bad and actually pretty natural, but he’s behaving like the world will end. The son wouldn’t react this bad when his parents would reassure him. Of course it’s a shock for a 5-year-old, but that’s why his parents should make clear that it’s no disaster *sigh* It will not be the last time in his life he’ll see something like this~ My father would laugh his ass of and explain that it’s no big deal. And maybe he’ll inform the people selling this thing. He’d probably be angry, but you can’t let your son feel like he saw the worst thing in the history of ever…

  16. The comments above are disturbing. You would think nintendo fans would be more mature than Sony and microsoft’s. Porn is bad for anyone, if you were not raised by two parents or maybe your single mom didn’t have enough sense to play the role of a father as well I forgive you. If you were raised correctly and think this is okay you have issues and need prayers them therapy. If you are a women supporting porn and in the future your man cheats on you, remember it’s your fault for advocating for nonsense. What’s wrong with the new generation? News flash, EUROPE shall trail east Asia in commerce and industry not because of their innovations; but because they have stronger moral and family ties at the basic level.

    2. I do agree with you that porn has negative effects on our society — on both men and women — BUT I think the fact that our society prefers excessive violence over sex is disgusting and even MORE harmful to children. If they are exposed to it frequently, they will undoubtedly become more aggressive and violent. A CHILD playing Call of Duty is a bigger issue than a child stumbling across porn on his 3DS.
      Also, before anyone tries jumping me — I don’t believe that porn should be banned. I mean, not only is that unrealistic and impossible, we will always crave it because we’re sexual creatures. But it’s silly to deny that porn does have negative effects on men and women.

    I’ve only parted with a few systems but I always format the HD. Gamestop SHOULD do the same. If nothing else it helps protect the privacy of the previous owner, especially if it contains credit card info for eShop purchases. This is pretty much all Gamestop’s fault, as there’s no harm in putting whatever the heck you want on your system.

  20. Is it wrong that I laughed at the whole article and video? The news broadcast seemed overly dramatised. But seriously, it’s an unfortunate circumstance and it was wrong for the 5-year old to see whatever images were on there, but that’s what you get for purchasing a pre-owned console. Or better yet, the previous owner should have deleted the pictures before giving it to GameStop. But in my honest opinion, a 5-year old shouldn’t even be given a games console in the first place.

  40. Hi Friends!! Well to be honest with you guys, I understand that pornography is a natural thing and may seem as unharmful, but when you think about it, parents who really take good care of their children want them to grow up healthy with a child’s happy mind… not all shocked for life and see things in a different way at an early age. Its just not right, its unhuman! The Parent for some reason cries, because it shows how much he loves his kids, because maybe he thought it was his fault. If any of you guys are or were parents, how would you feel if you saw that your beloved child is being exposed to sexual content. Please guys, Have some respect, some love and compassion for our brothers and sisters. Thanks for your time reading this! I hope this makes everyone think about what I said.

True, Gamestop should have deleted the pictures, and they are slightly at fault, but even if they did re-format the system memory, that wouldn’t delete anything on the SD card, therefore in the end it is the parents fault for not doing a thorough check of the system, if not for obsene images, then to ensure every thing worked correctly.
