A Lakewood, Colo., dad thought he was getting his son a special surprise for Christmas, but it turns out that he got far more than he bargained for.
Mark Giles bought his 5-year-old son, Braydon, a refurbished Nintendo 3DS from a local GameStop. When the boy asked his older brother for help deleting some pictures, nine graphic pornographic images were discovered on the toy.
GameStop employees at the store told Giles that the photos belonged to a previous owner and hadn't been removed before the device was resold. The company's corporate branch released a statement about the incident, explaining that the while they have stringent refurbishing policies, things do slip through occasionally.
Giles was given a brand new 3DS and some games, but told KUSA that the damage had already been done.
"You can't unsee this," Giles said. "He's not going to forget about this tomorrow."
The Nintendo 3DS comes equipped with several cameras that take images that can be edited with the handheld console. Updates to the device enable video recording andweb browsing capability.
