About 7,000 Wii U consoles have been stolen in a warehouse heist
If you live in Seattle, Washington, listen up. On Monday night, there was a storm in the area and thieves went into the Seattle's SeaTac airport and stole about 7,000 Wii U consoles, which is valued at ~ 2.1 million dollars. They used 2 semis, carrying the Wii U pallets with forklifts into the trucks.
They could have made the perfect heist, an Nintendo won't confirm if the Wii U can be tracked down. Purchased or not. So if you live in WA and see the stolen trucks in neighborhood streets, or if you don't live in WA and saw the stolen consoles selling off online, contact the police. Images of the trucks are below.
Not as bad as the 50 million dollar heist from the airport. Look that up :) Nintendo :)
That's because the news reporters don't know the difference. It was Wii U's.
Yikes, even if there was a storm, they can't just step down a bit of security.
Oh yeah, the Yahoo news title said it was Wii U's, but the entire rest of the article was referring to the Wii. All I can say is: My god, how hard is it to just do a tiny bit of research? You can't mix those two consoles up unless you've been living under 50 rocks since the Wii was released!
How many Wii u's is THQ worth?
I love you for that joke.
Thank you! Lmao
Not sure if troll.
We need to send Reggie after them, I can see it now: "I'm Reggie, and my body is ready" then shoots lasers from his eyes

When no one was looking, thieves took seven thousand WiiUs. They took seven thousand WiiUs. That's as many as seven hundred tens. And that't terrible.
I heard it was the regular Wii's not the Wii U
Damn... That's a pretty big heist. I bet this will be on Hard News tonight.
