A family from Lakewood, California was as happy as any other on Christmas morning. Five-year-old Braydon Giles had been asking Santa for a 3DS since 2011, and he finally got his wish this year. But joy turned to confusion and then to horror as he began to play with the handheld's 3D camera. After coming across a few pictures he didn't take, he asked his brother Bryton to help him delete them.

"He said that he didn't take these pictures so I went over to these pictures and I see two people in a bed. I told my dad and I said 'Dad, this has porn on it,' and he got up and went right to the phone." -Bryton Giles

According to the father, the family found nine graphic images on the device from its previous owner. After calling GameStop, the company apologized profusely for not finding these images before reselling the device. They then offered Giles a new console and several games out of gratuity. The corporate office issued the following statement in response:

"GameStop is currently researching this situation. We have a rigorous quality control process in place to ensure that existing content is removed from all devices before they are re-sold. 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."
