    They aren't Nintendo WiiMotes ... but they might work just as well.


    If it was a Nintendo Original ... it would say Brand:Nintendo

    For that price I'd check them out.

    I tried a non-Nintendo controller because it was rechargeable.
    Problem was, the controller sucked.

    At 75% off, I'd probably buy one.

    It looks pretty :)

    You pay for quality...these remotes may well last a good while, but, they also may not, hence the difference in price as an official Nintendo branded item.

    It's your choice whether you want to take the chance on these unbranded items lasting, only you can make that choice.

    Erm...I think those light blue ones are official nintendo branded ones. I've gotta admit they sell here for 50 euro's, so they're certainly sold cheap.

    I don't often buy things from ebay, but I'd hit it. The seller has some reputation and there's a money back guarantee.
    EDIT: I'll have to revise that...the pictures don't match the description, so...hard to tell what you're going to get.

    Oh, and...have some patience. A forum isn't a chat: it's normal it may take a couple of hours before replies come in. No need for all the double postings. :)

    You'll probably be okay. Most games don't even use motion+, the biggest exception is Zelda: Skyward Sword. If you want to play that (or one of the other few motion+ games) you'll need a remote+ or a remote+ an external motion+.

    Even if you do want to play motion+ games, you probably won't need more than one controller with motion+, so if you plan on getting multiple remotes you still may want some regular remotes to save money.

    You're right. And that's pretty worrying, as the pictures ARE of the official nintendo one (with some zooming, you can even spot the nintendo logo).

    Could be a mistake, but if the pictures don't match, it's not a good sign.

    I dunno, man. If I were to buy a third-party controller, I'd at least go for a known brand. Chintendo products are not exactly known for their quality, it might be managable, it might be a rattling piece of crap that breaks if you look at it funny. Moreover, some unofficial WiiMotes aren't compatible with homebrew, so that's an issue to have in mind too. I personally go for original controllers since I'm a purist, but ultimately it's your choice. Remember, you get what you pay for.

    You should avoid counterfeit controllers like the plague! Trust me, i have had some 3 or 4, all different, and all crappy!!

    It's not a problem of them breaking or something, some look almost exactly as the original even in the printing and even with instruction manuals, BUT, when it comes to gameplay, they all suck big time.

    Usually it's buttons that are raised too high or don't feel and click properly, making u lose button presses while playing, the dpads are always horrible, some almost don't even move your game character diagonally, and all will give you thumb pain from pressing so hard, those problem will lead to a lot of fails in game that need split second reactions. The motion controlls are never correct, they will either be too sensitive or not enough. Some don't work with homebrew, etc.

    Nunchuk and classic controller joysticks suck big time, some do feel tight in the beginning, but after some time they will be wobling around and feel sluggish.

    They are cheaper but not worth it. But I'm a gamer and a perfectionist and know how a game controller should feel and respond... they don't bother my gf at all so she uses them, but I can't use them to play at all, so it will always depend on the person.
