Drugs found in used copy of GTA IV

Suburban Gamestation on the ropes

The mainstream press are, at times, convinced the games are bad for our health, and in the case of one used copy of Grand Theft Auto IV this is probably true.

A British man discovered a wrapping of ecstasy tablets within the sleeve of one used copy of Grand Theft Auto IV, which the man acquired for his son from Gamestation in Gloucestershire (Jack Thompson would be livid...).

"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 today.

"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."
