Submission + - Wal-Mart's Terrible Nintendo Wii Knock-Offs.-> 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.
