Wii rip-offs

Friday, February 08, 2008

Everyone wants to dip into the success of the Wii. And no I'm not talking about the Sixaxis controller of the Playstation 3, but the 'cheap' versions of the actual Wii. In the Netherlands a gameconsole got released called the "Vimax", 50 Euros for a crap computer with a 'vimote' that registers some movement but is not really sensitive to all your movements, images are not even vaguelly resembling some trademarked characters, but seem to be blatantly copied: Jerry and Donkey Kong anyone?
You can watch a review of the Vimax at Gamekings (for the dutchies).

A seemingly cheap copy of the Wii got reviewed by Kotaku and seemed actually not that bad. Love the reviewers accent and way of reviewing, made me chuckle. Oh and wait till the endbit when the plastic cover is taken off, amazing what is actually inside of it! Watch it here:
