Man buys used Nintendo 3DS, finds it filled with porn

nintendo 3dsHere’s your favourite story for your Friday to give you a giggle. A man in the UK bought a used Nintendo 3DS, and upon switching it on, found it loaded with adult content that generally wouldn’t be found on a Nintendo device.

Reported by the Daily Star in the UK, “Richard Chester, 46, from Plymouth uncovered the graphic images and hardcore videos on the 3DS when he logged on at home, having purchased the handheld from a pawn shop earlier that day for £89.

According to Mr Chester the device contained at least 30 explicit pornographic images and several videos, which he believes were left on the console by the previous owner.” – Well it definitely wasn’t a pack-in offer from Nintendo!

The Daily Star reports that “Mr Chester told reporters that he was horrified at the thought his young daughter could have seen the images.”

The poor man who made the news regarding the horrific find…

He said: “I was disgusted, I was shocked, I did not expect anything to be on it at all. I would have thought the owner would remove anything before selling it.

“If I had bought it for my daughter it could have been worse. On this occasion it was for me, but I’m glad I looked at it first.”

The fact this made the news is hilarious, and it’s not an unlikely scenario either, with people trading in phones, tablets, laptops or other tech which may leave a digital paper trail as to what its previous owner was up to. Trade in with caution, or at least delete your history and data before so!

I wonder if the content made use of the 3DS’ 3D features… and if it was cleaned before being handed in/sold.
