Not even robbers like Wii U
Nintendo should shy away from marketing their products to society's grubs.

This morning I came into MMGN HQ nice and early, and at first it seemed like a normal day.

After an hour or so, I noticed a leather bag of mine was missing. I was sure I had left it in the office and was perplexed as to its whereabouts.

My colleagues passed it off as just forgetfulness -- "It's probably at home," they quipped.

Every day at around 11:30am-12pm, EndBoss and I play PES 2013 -- he has a fetish for losing -- and it wasn't until I turned around to turn the Xbox 360 on that I realised we had been robbed.

A PlayStation 3 and debug Xbox 360 console had been stolen, along with some iPads and iPhones from other businesses that work in the same space (we are based on a floor with multiple small businesses).

Funnily enough, the robbers left the Wii U.

Moral of the story: Nintendon't offer what robbers want.

No but seriously, they took everything except the Wii U.

    I have a pass, Ben just doesn't like you.

    (Disclaimer: I don't have a pass, I haven't even been to the new office yet, but my point still stands.)

    Passes are coded to you individually (i.e. the system knows I personally entered the building at 8:47 this morning). Which it's why it's weird there was nothing out of place on the logs.

    Only people who are here every day have one, and you need another one that even I don't have to get in at ground level after 5:30 [Shifty]

    Wow lol [MOG] Doesn't get much worse for your product when a leather bag gets stolen over a next gen console.

    Maybe they left the WiiU because they respect Nintendo too much to subject their consoles to their heinous crimes.

    Maybe because the GamePad was on the otherside of the office they couldn't figure out where the controller was.

    Off TV play has saved us!

    Sucks about that. Maybe these thieves thought it was a normal wii console?
  • abujaffer 14339 XP 31/05/2013
    Maybe they were using the leather bag to steal the stuff and just ran out of room. =_=

    Maybe they got sick of waiting for extra gamepads to be sold separately? Or the broke theirs and needed a new one?
  • MCpreditor 547 XP 02/06/2013
    The robber could have been in the building before five. They couldve accessed a side door or something, climbed in an open window. They couldve been a worker or a tag team. Say. If one of two workers stays to steal the stuff after everybody is gone, the other worker leaves for home signing the robbing worker out at the time he would normally leave. He couldve chucked out his old iphone and got a new one in case anybody would possibly link the iphone which was apparently stolen. Cctv would help a lot...

    Just a possible theory if there's some people you don't trust. =D

    I must admit watching the Youtube vid about this incident was pretty funny and made me think about how famous you all are now also BUT I have a serious question...

    Did they steal the 20th anniversary Sonic the Hedgehog statue? Because frankly that would have been my first grab.
