Above you can see a room supposedly filled with 100 Wiis. It seems that Dragon Quest X bots are farming gold, the game's currency.

An individual tweeted the photos to Dragon Quest X's producer, pleading for a fix to deal with this.

I don't know how you would make a profit off this, the Electricity bill must be about 2x the amount of money you earn from farming. If only this game was exclusive to wii u, then the console would have alot more sales.
