Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Thieves steal $2 million worth of wii consoles but the punch line is

they were wiiu consoles! -_- I present to you..modern day journalism

Police in SeaTac, Wash., are asking for help in tracking down thieves who they say stole $2 million worth of Nintendo Wii gaming consoles.

The thieves managed to get away with 7,000 portable Wii gaming consoles after raiding a warehouse at SeaTac’s Seattle Air Cargo.

“I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Sgt. Cindy West. “This has come straight out of the movies.”

West explains the thieves drove two large diesel trucks into a Nintendo distribution site inside Seattle Air Cargo on Saturday evening around 9 o’clock. The thieves worked together to snatch up thousands of consoles by operating forklifts within the warehouse. Afterward, they loaded the Wiis into two 53-foot semi-truck trailers waiting outside the center along with another large box-truck van.

By noon on Sunday, employees inside the business noticed empty Nintendo pallets on the warehouse floor and missing trucks.

Police have no information on the thieves and say it’s unclear just how many were inside the warehouse during the time of the heist.

“If we don’t get any tips ahead of time, it will be the selling of these consoles that will lead to their capture,” said West. “It’s gonna be pretty hard to hide 7,000 Wii game consoles.”

Nintendo Wii gaming consoles retail for about $300. Check out our Wii U review here.

Much like they would have probably said "Xboxes" if they had stolen a ton of 360s.

The last link to their "Wii U Review" doesn't even function. Lol.

and people claim video game journalism is trash. it's everywhere.
