If you remove the film the plastic underneath is still shiny. They are not trying to hide a flat plastic finish with glossy plastic film. I only brought it up because this film is absent on a genuine. They did a pretty good job of matching the plastic textures of an original finish. As for its Motion Plus, last night I was playing some 2 player Sports Resort. My friend had the genuine and I had the fake as we played that sword game where you race to slice objects they throw in front of you. We were about evenly matched on that one and my controller was not making any outlandish motions. I have been playing quite a bit of archery as well and I can get the precision I need from both the genuine and the fake. So far the Motion Plus on these fakes seem to work well enough. At first glance they seem to be well worth $15 but who knows how long they will continue to function properly if they are made of cheap components.
