A local mom says she was shocked to discover a pornographic image, involving a child on a gaming device. She bought the gift for her son's birthday. The game system, a Nintendo DSi, was pre-owned and contained an image the mother-of-four says is pornographic involving a child.

A local mom says she was shocked to discover a pornographic image on a gaming device she bought for her son's birthday.

The game system, a Nintendo DSi, was pre-owned and contained an image the mother-of-four says is pornographic.

Shannon Bryant was not expecting it would be the same as one right out of the box, but she didn't expect her children to make the discovery that they did.

"I heard a 'yelp' -- the craziest 'yelp' I've ever heard from any of my children," she says. "They run out of their bedrooms, screaming: 'There's a naked child on the DS.'"

Shannon Bryant says she was furious. She had purchased the DSi recently for her son's eighth birthday. They played games on it and had fun until the next day when her son and his sisters decided to check out the camera feature. Bryant couldn't believe the image on the device.

"I was shocked, dazed, extremely offended," says Bryant. "It scared me. I'm an adult and it scared me. It scared my children.

Bryant bought the DSi from a local GameStop. She immediately called the store to report the inappropriate image.

"I got a call from a district manager a day and a half later, wanting to give me a game and two more games," she says.

Bryant says although GameStop did offer a new system, she says she would have like to see more concern about this mistake and the damage viewing this inappropriate image had done to her young children.

"For them seeing an innocent child in the nastiest predicament," says Bryant, "they're worried just like I am and I'm an adult."

We went to the GameStop where Bryant purchased the DSi to find out what went wrong. A manager told us somehow, when the Nintendo was traded, it was not wiped clean. We're told GameStop's policy is every device is cleaned in the presence of the customer trading it. So, they say it was an oversight that the device wasn't wiped.

But Bryant says she understands some onus is on the parents. She says, "You need to be proactive. Just because your heart is in the right place and you want to treat your child with something as special like a DS, somebody may have another agenda for your child and there's nothing you can do about it."

Bryant advises you to check out any new game system with your child and the manager at GameStop told us if you buy a used game system when you turn it on, it should require that you set it up for use. If not, it may not have been cleaned.

It is not known if the game store is working with the police to try and identify the previous owner for criminal charges.
