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!
