hi all,

i am new here, i have been meaning to register but i have been spending most of my free time on my wiiu, however i travel for work, and my wiiu was stolen out of my car, i spent over 250.00 in e shop games, any chance nintendo will work with me ??? the nintendo id being locked to just one console is my biggest complaint ggrr.

no i dont play in my car, but i play it in hotel when not at work while traveling, however i took it out of the hotel room because i didnt want to risk a house keeper stealing it, dumb move since it was taken out of my car when a co worker forgot to lock it.

Nothing we can do here, just get in contact with them. Don't get your hopes too high though.

When my Wii was stolen I called Nintendo mostly just to make sure my credit card number wasn't stored anywhere on the system, but I did ask if there was any way I could recoup my downloads. They said they'd "look into it" or something to that effect.

I wasn't able to afford a new Wii for a while as that wasn't all that was stolen, and since then I've repurchased most my VC downloads in their real physical forms. I really don't miss any of my WiiWare, so I never looked any further into it. But my advice is to call them and ask. Can't hurt.

This might sound silly but.... Contact your homeowner's insurance. My family and a couple friends have had stuff stolen, even out of their car when not actually home, and most homeowner's insurance extends to lost or stolen property. It's definitely worth a shot. Nintendo offers warranties but not insurance. Calling them is most likely a waste of time.

Four pages' worth of comments and only a handful actually worth anything to the OP. Congratulations, all, you truly outdid yourselves tonight. Do it again and some of you may wind up banned for your trouble.

@fzerofan: I'm sorry your Wii U was stolen. I hope you've filed a police report, I'm afraid that's the only way Nintendo will work with you to restore your eShop account and purchased games. Other than that, I think ShadJV has a good idea to try contacting your insurance company to see if they cover items stolen from your car (they also may require a police report, though it doesn't hurt to ask). Good luck to you!
