Why A 3DS Full of Porn Is Bad

whaaatt?

No. I wasn’t eaten by zombies. I’ll get to what I’ve been up and why I haven’t written anything lately to in a future post. But for now…

Santa dropped by a GameStop and picked up a refurbished 3DS for one five year old boy. After tearing open the wrapping paper, he asked his older brother to help him delete some pictures off it.

When his little brother saw the pictures were, in fact,

pornographic he alerted their father who stormed down to the GameStop to give them a piece of his mind. Can anyone blame him?

For a minute, let’s forget about GameStop’s horrible practice in selling this unit without properly preparing it for sale.

Why is this bad? Aside from the obvious, the “used game” market had been causing a bit of a stir over the past year. Publishers wanted to implement some kind of “online pass” that would seriously cut down on used game sales, rented games and simply just borrowing a game from a friend.

Think about renting a game from GameFly and having to pay an addition $15 to play online. That’s an expensive game rental. Think about hanging out a friend’s house. You want to bring over a game to show him. Unless you disconnect and lug your console over, you’ll be spending $10-$15 for an online pass or something similar just to show him the game.

You may be asking yourself- what does this have to do with a 3DS full of porn?

The fact that this 3DS was refurbished sold as a “used” console, I can’t help but dread the “online pass” may come back to the table. Now, before all of you skeptics start criticizing me, a dude who writes about video games on the internet, can’t we all just unite in our hatred of GameStop and blame them? Also, five year olds shouldn’t be looking at porn.

In all seriousness, I’d rather have GameStop around than have to pay $15 for online passes.

What do you guys think? Will the possibility of online passes come back to the table? Convince me in the comments below!
