    The long waited Wii Remote Plus Arrived, but it's different from the other one I already have.
    The "A Button" is White and the rear isn't of the same material as the other one... Can someone tell me what it is? Is it a fake or not?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I could be wrong, but I think it's fake

    Yes the one with the white button is fake.

    Not necessarily, newer Wiimotes have matte buttons (at least my blue one has, whereas my older red one has a transparent A button).

    Maybe you're right, it says "2015" on the box. The not matte A Button Wii remote says "2012"

    Last thing: Does you blue one has a different material rear from your older red one?

    They both look genuine but it's worth checking on the back.

    The newer one has a hole above the Sync button (so it can be pressed while the back is on).

    Yeah. I really hate that, it's hard to press the sync button unless you have something thin to use.

    Indeed. I only have black Wiimotes and all two have transparent white buttons.

    So, both of them look real though one may be a launch version while the other more recent.

    On the Wii Strap there's a little piece sticking out of the plastic part. That's meant to be put in the Sync hole

    Take out the battery cover and do a photo of the inscriptions inside. And another photo of the battery cover itself.

    Both are genuine

    If you don't have it then it's an issue.

    At least it prevents the little tab you press in from being worn down. That thing snapped off of one of my older wiimotes from me removing and placing that back panel on over and over again.

    Certainly. It probably wasn't easy for Nintendo to come to that conclusion but the best one overall.

    They both look legit, take a pic to the battery slot.
