Why steal toys? Electronic toys... If you're going to steal something -- and don't get me wrong, I don't condone theft -- steal something worthwhile. This stuff is worth a bit, but each unit has a serial number and MAC address, so when they do turn up on the street, or online, it shouldn't be terribly difficult for the authorities to track.

Hopefully the consoles weren't waiting to be delivered to homes for the holidays, or if they were, hopefully Nintendo can manage to rush some more packages out so kids and adults alike can receive the gift they wished for.
Pathetic for a bunch of greeners. Probably running low on bud or something.

@A Person Normally I'd agree with you but being a hot (no pun intended) new toy the thieves probably thought they could sell them for a high price somewhere. Wouldn't surprise me if they know about as much as ABC seems to.

That being said I feel sorry for those buying a Wii U only to find out its hot, and anyone who can't get one because of this.

Where though? The Wii U isn't selling it out like it's predecessor. I still see a bunch of Wii U's (specially the Deluxe Version) in all the Best Buys I've visited. This means that these guys aren't going to make some serious cash, all they can do is sell it for a low price and sell it quickly.

THM doesn't bullshit! He's right!!

A person, it's you who bullshit by saying 'why steal toys'!! How much do you know about politics???!!! Still a kid are you?

Stealing toys do not alleviate poverty or the behaviours of criminals! What we need is a better equality for all!....A person, You should watch you big greedy mouth by encouraging stealing online!!! We're watching.

Meet me at home or stuff it. You don't know a thing about me.

Socialism... Maybe in a perfect world, you know, an unrealistic one. As far as I'm concerned, true socialism doesn't exist in this day and age. When a self-proclaimed socialist gets enough power and backing they tend to seek different... policies.

ProudLoz Thats why I said "they thought" they could, they probably thought the Wii U would sell out like the Wii did. I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that ABC thinks the Wii U's gamepad is a regular tablet or something.

Socialist Gamer Oh, the irony.

If Nintendo can lower the price of the Wii U between $150 and $200,this might've not happened.
But that's just my opinion.
