We've seen porn in PSP, we've seen ecstasy in GTA, and now it's the Nintendo DS' turn to hand out freebies from hell. Jodi Wykle from Lake Wales got a new DS for her 16-year-old son, who was all too happy to be getting a new handheld for his birthday. But instead of finding a shiny new DS in the box, the guy found a pile of rocks and a roll of Chinese newspaper.
Surprise, surprise. Just like the porn-infested PSP, the new DS was purchased from a Wal-Mart outlet. Wykle demanded a refund, but Wal-Mart would not comply since the DS had never been returned. Instead, Wykle was told to contact Nintendo. Since it was her son's birthday, she opted to go and buy another DS first, and demanded that the Wal-Mart staff open it in front of her before paying for it.
Wykle managed to contact Nintendo, whose national representatives gave her a refund for her first purchase, and was also given a US 20 gift card.
