Thieves make off with $2 million worth of Wii U systems

Christmas is RUINED

ABC News is reporting that thieves have managed to steal 7,000 Wii U consoles from a warehouse at SeaTac Seattle Air Cargo. The criminals apparently drove two large diesel trucks into Nintendo's distribution site inside the warehouse, and used forklifts to jack all the Wii Us. From there, the thieves then loaded up two 53-foot semi-truck trailers, and another box-truck van with the haul.

Police have no information at this time, and are hoping that they'll be able to catch the thieves when they try to sell the stolen consoles.

Unfortunately, ABC News doesn't know the difference between the Wii and Wii U, so there's a strong possibility it was 7,000 Wii U systems, or even a mix of both, that were stolen. The news story even goes so far as calling the Wii a portable gaming console. Uhhh, yeah.
