    Hi, I bought this black wii motion plus and nunchuck controller of ebay, Im just wondering if you know by looking at it if it is real or a fake. I've done some research and as far as i can tell is it genuine but I would like some other opinions :). My biggest worry was the battery cover wasn't genuine as it had no stamp but querying this apparently it was a replacement cover put on at one stage.

    As for the Nunchuck, it has the stamp on the back at the bottom, and has voltage writing on the cable etc? I assume this is a good thing?

    Thanks for the replys and help :).

    Wiimote itself seems fishy.... Especially when every Nintendo product has a Nintendo sticker when you open them...

    There are some really good fakes that can be hard to tell but if you have an official one side by side you'll be able to tell the differences. I had a fake Wii U Pro Controller which was identical to the official Wii U Pro Controller, i.e., with the Wii U logo at the front and etc. I'd not be surprised if used game stores end up selling them as the 'official' 'cause the people usually hired at said stores aren't very skilled with this sort of thing.

    Agree with Saiyan, if it's a fake it's very well done

    Yeah it's a pretty flawless fake if it is, but it's hard to be convinced when as you guys say fakes are so well done.

    Can you take it apart? Mobo shows easily if it's faked or not.

    Unfortunately I don't have a tri wing screwdriver. Every detail from the stamps to the LEDs are all fine so I hope that means it's real but who knows lol

    Do 3rd party controllers even bother with triwing nowadays?
