At Least This Wii Knockoff Is Honest

By Spencer . December 5, 2010 . 5:18am

wiiWii knockoffs are a dime a dozen. Most of them suggest a Wii-like experience with people playing a 16-bit tennis mini-game on the box. This motion controlled mini-console, on the other hand, asks would be buyers to curb their expectations. The back of the box reads:


Dear valued customer: please note if you are looking to purchase or own an Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Wii or equivalent, this product does not compare or compete with these technologies.


While I wonder how many purchasers will notice the warning, it’s uplifting to see a company warning good-willed, but ill-informed parents about the limits of their product at the expense of a sale.

    Cause, obviously, Chinese people are fluent in Spanish.

    • Nice!

      Indeed, the Spanish they use doesn’t seem to be google-translated, it’s pretty decent. Most of the time native speakers of Spanish have less problems reading the instructions in English even if they don’t know much. But there are also those weird English instructions written according to the Chinese grammar and google… a pain to read.

    XD Nice to see whoever makes these cheap knockoffs show a little bit of honesty.
