    Yes. If they do not say "Wii U" right in the middle, they are not official controllers.

    These are Third Party, its weird to call them fakes, since they are not saying they are OEM.

    I think it's just because they're made to look identical to the official ones. People get them mixed up and end up upset that their product is poor quality.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Ask the dealer and also do the research as your homework to be safe at google. A seller might be after your money for the wrong reason. Beware!

    the controller in the link is clearly fake.

    i have 2 official pro controllers, both with slightly different labels on the battery cover.
    the official pros come with nintendo branded grey USB cable.

    does anyone have info about the stamped serial number below the battery cover?

    if that is not fake i might buy it myself, but i doubt that it is original :/

    i have gotten one as a gift and i think it was an original one from a friend who didnt have a wii u, but the battery or the controller itself was defect .

    only would work with a USB attached.
    imo. these WiiU pro controllers are trash.

    If by fake you mean that they weren't manufactured by Nintendo and are sold to look like they were, then yes.
