    Wow thats rather interesting actually.

    Also I guess people will do whatever they can to get a Wii, even if it means stealing one which is just plain stupid.

    If they looked on my Wii, they would think it was owned by Waluigi.

    I have about 20 of the little Waluigi Mii's :lol:

    thats funny. police have to gi to that extent to find a $380 console when they could just buy a new one and not waste their time on video games.

    That's pretty cool. Wii's help catch crooks...or more ltrack down stolen property. Not really catching them....

    Ummmm...they've already caught the criminal. They're not looking for the actual owner(s) of the Wii.

    In a rather dumb way, I might add. Now they'll have 5,000 people and their grandmas claiming it's their Wii. Why not look through the list of people reporting stolen Wii's, or do they not do that kind of thing in the UK?

    I also thought that since the police revealed that the miis could identify the wii, a future thief knows now to delete them once get he gets it.

    Agreed, I don't care how much sense it makes, that's just odd that someone actually used save data to identify a stolen electronic device.
