Submission + - Wal-Mart's Terrible Nintendo Wii Knock-Offs. (about.com) 3

MaryAlan writes: Wal-Mart is now selling an electronic LCD game in the kid's section that resembles a Wiimote so closely that even Wal-Mart employees can't tell them apart in a picture. But the games — made by ToyQuest out of L.A. — are complete and utter crap, to the point of being unplayable. Their only redeeming feature is that they look like the Nintendo Wii, which means Wal-Mart is relying on brand confusion to sell any of these things to unsuspecting customers. Click here to take a look at side-by-side pictures with a true Wiimote, down to the fake speaker on the front. It'd be laughable if it were not nearly so obvious, and didn't imply that Wal-Mart thinks people are idiots to be ripped off.

  • Wal-Mart employees can't tell them apart

    You would have thought the LCD display on the Wallmart one was at least a little bit of a giveaway.

  • Anyone who thinks this is real deserves to be ripped off, much like anyone falling for Nigerian email scams deserves to be.

    Stupid people need to suffer for their stupidity.

    As it stands, this doesn't happen anywhere near often enough, so I'm in favor of products like this.
