Boy, 4, finds stash of pot in Xbox game purchased from Blockbuster

British boy Riley Brown was excited when father Andy Brown, 30, gave him a copy of Fight Night Round 4, but quickly became puzzled by the small plastic bag stashed behind the instructions - and the substance in it. (Fight Night Round 4, Xbox 360)

I was gonna finish the game
Until i got high

Well thats realistic of EA as they are giving the consumers a chance to have the lifestyle of Mike Tyson.

EA its in the game. Or more accurately behind the instructions.

lol i would throw the game and keep the pot
Mr_Bun  +   2002d ago
I can't believe there was an instruction booklet with a game that came from Blockbuster!

DAMN Microsofts marketing tactics are off the chain...
...and all this time I thought it was the games themselves that wanted lol

What I find hilarious is the game his dad got him
There's nothing wrong with pot, I'd have kept it. There is so much ignorance surrounding the legalization of it that it's just plain sad.

But yeah, Fight night Round 4, is that a smart choice to give a FOUR year old? Maybe it's just me but I find that age way too young for video games.

Someone's gonna say it, so I might as well be the first one...
... pot + RRoD = The best console pack-in of all time.

haha thats funny
I thought it would be cool too untill I saw the picture. that is some really old dirt weed.

I like this part the father said "But what if he'd thought it was sweets, and started munching away? It doesn't bear thinking about."

Nothing would happen as that was a tiny amount of crap weed. And it REALLY looks like sweets /s.

WeeD has never killed anyone anyways, so even with the best weed ever the kid would have still been technically safe. Cant Od on Weed, and its less addictive then coffee.

@ Mr Bun
In the other article it was my xbox.

Lucky little mofo, im so jealous, i spent £40 2-day on pot and this runt finds it 4-nothin
Cerebellum  +   2002d ago
Wow that article was a headache to read. Was it a translation?
Hideo_Kojima  +   2002d ago
Look at the pick that is nowhere near £40 worth of weed.
Its hardly worth a fiver at most probably someone did it for a joke.
AntoineDcoolette  +   2002d ago
Was that an actual photo of the actual bag of weed? It looks like some extremely sh!tty weed. Still, why couldn't it happen to me? I fantasize about this kind of stuff lol
Wake  +   2002d ago
Yeah its translated believe it or not people don't speak English in England, Sponge.

On topic, Seems like they bought a preowned copy of fight night round 4. Kid looks to young to enjoy that type of game anyways hes most likely one of them GTA4 dad's that only buy there kids games with violence.
Cerebellum  +   2002d ago
Right I'm a sponge because "Boy of 4 in Xbox Game drugs find" is a perfectly grammatically error free sentence /s
RockmanII7  +   2002d ago
I have a two year old brother and he plays games, I keep him on a Sonic/Forza diet though.
Rowland  +   2003d ago
unlike Blockbuster not to make a hash of it !
Speed-Racer  +   2002d ago
and he told his parents...wtf..I would have smoked that crap while playing my games
WikusVanDeMerwe  +   2002d ago
Your comment had me laughing hard
Not sure if you read the actual story or not but the kid that found the pot was only 4 and the thought of him trying to smoke that or even knowing what it is.....lmao
kraze07  +   2002d ago
You'd be surprised. If I saw a 4 year old smoking weed where I'm from I honestly wouldn't be shocked.
Das_Bastardion  +   2002d ago
That only happens in that inferior white piece of sh!t
The Xbox360 is the worst invention in mankind history since the nuclear bomb... oh wait...

Is not the first time that porn is discovered by children in that stupid machine... just WHAT THE FVCK is going on?

I know, we read about people finding porn on their consoles, handhelds, etc...but never happens to us :(

I don't need it on my console though I've got tons of porn on dvd in my fro.......

Um, yeah your right. Never that lucky.

Pretty much the best exclusive the flopbox has going for it.
BeaArthur  +   2002d ago
Damn, I wish it had been Dark Void or something crappy because then I would have had a good zinger.

Why is a 4 year old playing Fight Night?
LittleBigSackBoy  +   2002d ago
It's just Boxing. I'm pretty sure you're aloud to watch Boxing, even start Boxing yourself at 4. So why not play a game?
Aphe  +   2002d ago
Why is Fight Night a 16 though? Has it got swearing in or just because it's a boxing game? I always watched boxing when I was a kid, if it's just because it's a boxing game I'd probably let my kids play it as well as long as it didn't have anything else in the game that was unsuitable.
BeaArthur  +   2002d ago
It is rated T for teen. Yeah I hear you though, I just think it's weird that he gave his 4 year old Fight Night. Give him Banjo Kazooie or something.
f789790  +   2002d ago
That's what I was thinking
I know it's not too violent but it's still fighting. Giving a 4 year old child a fighting game cannot be good for him. They're too impressionable at that age.
pixelsword  +   2002d ago
For EVERYONE who's wondering why the 4-year-old had a Boxing game:
England = Origin of Boxing.

That's awesome.

This is sort of funny to me...
Back when the PS2 and original Xbox were out in full swing me and a few of my friends used to joke about how heavy the Xbox was. A couple of the PS2 guys bought one and got hooked on it and we started a joke about the Xbox being so heavy because it came with a pound of weed inside the case. We even called it the "PotBox", lol. It was all in good fun as this was before the "fanboy-ism" became such a big problem.
Godmars290  +   2002d ago
by that pic its obvious he's tried some.
Voozi  +   2002d ago
Mommy made him some special brownies
mirroredderorrim  +   2002d ago
My only question now... was it organic or hydroponic?

Bloodlyte  +   2002d ago
ooooooh sow thats why FN4 has a 16+ rating.
geth1gh  +   2002d ago
the good stuff
that weed looked like schwag straight from mexico. It didn't even look green.

Also, direct quote...

"But what if he'd thought it was sweets, and started munching away? It doesn't bear thinking about."

You can't get high from eating weed unless it's bound to some sort of fat like butter, so it wouldn't have done a damn thing.
Rubberlegs  +   2002d ago
Its mixed in with tobacco but still I don't see any green in that bag. If he really did eat some he would probably spit it out or puke it up. A mouth full of tobacco isn't gonna taste sweet.
PS3Freak  +   2002d ago
That was deffinetly terrible stuff. Clearly the guy who previously owned the game has never been to British Columbia, home of the best weed on the planet.

The only part that would effect you if you ate it would be the stem, but there was none in that bag. MMMM stem tea.

Mr Lahey  +   2002d ago
Just the fact that guys like you wish for everyone else to also be "straight" makes me shiver. ugh..

Kind Bud?
If I were that boy's father, I'd demand he share the smoke with me. Damn bogartor!
thedarkvault  +   2002d ago
The guy who traded that game is probably saying "Daaaamn, that's where I put it".
