A British man found some “ecstasy tablets” in one of the used GTA games he purchased at a GameStation in Gloucestershire.
“When I opened the box up, the cling film wrap fell out. I could not believe it. I have two children and my son plays Xbox all the time. He could easily have opened the box and found them,” Richard Thornhill told the Telegraph.
“I dread to think what the consequences would have been if he had. He is only 12. He could have died. It was a pre-used game, but that should not make a difference. My wife is beside herself over this because she keeps thinking about what could have happened and so do I.”
Richard never mentioned why his son would have been messing about with mature rated game in the first place.
