Check out these Chinese rip-offs of the Wii & Wii U
Editor's Note: Put those WEEs into a gallery.
Like all successful things someone (or something) eventually comes along to leach off its success by flat out copying it. Well, in this case it's Nintendo's future console the Wii U. Even without a official release date, the Wii U's unique gamepad already has its own band of copycats.
The fake console is named the "JXD S5100" it rolls right off the tongue. The copycat includes the gamepad's large touch screen as well as X, Y, A, and B buttons. The JXD also features identical resolution to the Wii U. The whole package costs $110 and is powered by Android.
Once the Wii U does launch we can expect a lot more of these copycats to be popping up. As for the original Wii, it has its own fake versions just ready to be picked up by the unexpected consumer. Take a look...
So, g1s what do you think? Are these fakes an insult to Nintendo's console? Or can you not wait to get your hands on the JXD S500? Tell me in the comment section below!

The Wii U controller itself looks like the bottom half of a 3DS and this thing is the same size of the Wii U controller. And where do you think they got the idea for the design if it's not a rip-off? And check out the other JXD products. The S5110 looks exactly like the Vita. Using android is just a cheap way of not having to develop their own OS.
Well considering everything that's not Chinese is banned in China...
It makes me remember one that was sold in mexico called hwiibox, what is worse is that in the ad they were playing the real wii and not the knock-off they were trying to sell, here is the ad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v88Gsh_03T8
Who would honestly by a fake console to try and compete with the legit thing? Only copies of systems I think are almost buy able are the retro consoles that are moded to play multiple systems or are just unique in their construction like the Toaster NES. Any modern day copy/fake system is complete garbage. And don't think that same assesment can be said for most of the old school copy/fake system too.
JXD look the the WiiU controller? What are you smoking? It looks more like the bottom half of the 3ds (with better resolution). Also like @OctoCamo said, it's not trying to be a knockoff, it's running android (are they advertising it like the WiiU, cuz if not I think that the JXD being the main point of this article is off biases).
I don't see how JXD is that bad. It's just a handheld android device, right? They're not even trying to pass it as an actual Wii U like most chinese "knock-offs".
awe man i cant wait to see them come out with a wiicar, or any of the other screwattack peripherals for this xD but seriously,... this is such a sad attempt. i suppose if someone didnt know any better. but really...
Looks like Stuart Ashens got more tat to review...
Who cares what Chinese courts say, let's just march in and kick some communist ass! The Chinese still bitch about Japan yet the Chinese invade Tibet. Now they rip off the Japanese again which is pure laziness, not mention CAPITALISM!
All communists are hypocrites!
I remember my friends and I laughing like crazy during class at how bad of a rip off the Vii was.
Well, this has happened a ton over the past 20 years. lol
It's a shame that nothing can really be done about it. Nintendo should be able to sue regardless of the region it's in, even if it is China.
They should release a new model called Wee G.
Weegee, geddit? It's funny.
I think that these fake consoles are an insult to Nintendo's console.
Wait until the French come out with their version of the Wii, the Wee Wee.
I can't wait to get my brand new Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
And man, Nintendo could have a field day with that JXDwhatever if they want. The others are pretty safe, but so much of that one steals directly from their patents!
The horror! THE HORROR!
