We all know the perils of buying second-hand games, but a 4-year-old British boy got more than he bargained for when his father gave him a pre-owned copy of Fight Night: Round 4.
When he opened the case, hidden behind the instructions was a surprise: a bag of marijuana.
Like any good boy, Riley took his new-found possession to his father, who was somewhat shocked at the discovery.
“I checked and realised. I was horrified and took it off him straight away.
“But what if he’d thought it was sweets, and started munching away? It doesn’t bear thinking about.”
The bag allegedly contained “a small amount of cannabis and tobacco”, with the family surmising it had been put there by the game’s previous owner who forgot about it when trading the game in.
Local Blockbuster, where the purchase was made, didn’t seem to think too much of the drama, offering the family a free rental to their account by way of compensation. Dad’s not impressed:
“…This isn’t a matter of a scratched CD or wrong disc, it’s serious.
“They should check all the boxes before they sell them.”
Obviously, there are two things to learn here:
1: Check your second hand games carefully to make sure they don’t contain any surprises stashed inside.
2: If you are going to use your Xbox 360 games as a form of drug storage, it’s best to take them out before you take the game back down the shop for a trade-in.
Common sense really, wouldn’t you say?
