8 Year Old Finds Porn on New Nintendo DS


While most people go about the holiday season buying and returning merchandise with no issues, some people just don’t have the same luck. Just yesterday we reported on a couple that bought an iPhone at a Target store, but when they opened the box it was full of nothing more than erasers and index cards. This next story is along the same vein, as it happened over this Christmas and the item in question (a Nintendo DS) was supposed to be brand new fresh from the factory.

The DS was a present for an 8-year-old in Hampton Va, and was a gift from his father. The DS was of course a huge hit, and the kid went on to play it throughout the day, but as he stared to look around the images on the DS there were no stock images, just a dozen pornographic stills.

“It was a shocker because we had family here, and there were a lot of kids here,” Mayhew told the local news station. “The kids were the ones that discovered those pictures.”

The father originally thought the images were put on the device before it left the Nintendo factory, but he is also looking into the local Wal-Mart to see if someone had bought it previously. If this is the case the previous owner could have put the porn on it, and then returned it. Mayhew said thought the Nintendo was new, not used.

While rare this is not the first time a Nintendo product has been sold with porn stored in the internal memory.
