Most parents don't want their parents exposed to sexual content at the age. Even movies and games tend to block out the entire thing. I do agree it was overdramatic though.
..And why didn't the Gamestop reformat the 3DS? They usually do when they get a device.
Still, it's just porn. At 5 years old, the kid probably didn't even know what he was looking at. Until his father made a big deal about it, that is. Then the poor kid's left confused and worried, probably asking all kinds of questions about it, trying to understand why it's wrong that he saw those pictures.
Of course, if pornography wasn't so taboo in our culture, this probably wouldn't have been an issue. Yeah, porn may not be appropriate for children, but there are many things that aren't; drugs, alcohol, tobacco, violence, guns, swear words, etc. Yet we let children know of, see, and in some cases even be around many of these things, but when it comes to harmless porn, oh no, it's the end of the world! Guess what? It's not that big of a deal! But if you make it out to be one, then it becomes one.
Also, reformatting the system doesn't delete photos, videos, and recordings on the SD card. They probably did reformat the system. Still, GameStop could at least format the SD cards, too.
