There’s no shortage of fake video game consoles in China that look and feel like their real counterparts, but are very fake. The Wii U isn’t even out yet, and its iconic GamePad controller has already been copied by a Chinese company. With a dose of 3DS features thrown in, for good measures. The console, called JXD S5100, features a very GamePad “inspired” design, with a screen, circle pad, ABXY buttons, D-pad, and more. The console has a touchscreen with the same resolution as the Wii U GamePad, and is powered by Android and costs $110. It even appears to have a VGA camera as well. Or maybe it’s just a fake hole. On second thought, it probably is a fake hole.
Once the Wii U launches, there will most certainly be an onslaught of fake Wii U consoles coming out of China. Just take a look at these fine specimen they managed to create, based on the original Wii:
- Mini Mario & Friends Amiibo Challenge out now
- Koei Tecmo working on an NX game
- Wii U could cease production in 2018
- Nintendo profits are down 61% over last year
