    "Don’t have the $250 asking price for the real deal, and/or do you routinely make poor buying decisions? A trip to your local Dollar General and $49 and this bad boy could be yours!

    Okay, I knew these things were out there, but I had no idea that any national retailer was dumb enough to stock it. I knew there were “Viis” and the like out there in the interwebs, but I never thought I’d be face-to-face with one. Now we just need people dumb enough to buy it. Some choice excerpts from the box:

    * THIRD GENERATION GAMING
    * REAL TIME ACTION GRAPHICS

    The box was light as a feather, and for those of you wondering about the back of the box, it is exactly the same as the front. I would have bought it had I had some disposable income just to see how bad it is, but it looks like thats already been done for me."

    Nice I hope ashens will review it.
    EDIT: It looks nothing like the Wii though so it could hardly be called a clone.

    This cannot even come close to the greatness that was the Chintendo Vii.

    Hmm, I'm sure I saw one of these in my local cheap shop window, but certainly not THAT pricey, more like £15.

    I'll have to take a picture if I walk by it sometime.

    Can I be seriously honest?

    They were selling this at my local Pat Catans arts and craft store. Yes, arts and crafts. Kinda weird combination. But they have a little toy section in the store, so

    I remember seeing it, and was going to post it here. But I forgot the name of it. But this reminded me.

    It's so crappy when you see the box in real life.

    I was going to buy it 4tehlulz, but I forgot the price.

    Offtopic: Firefox actually thinks "4tehlulz" is a word o.o

    On the topic of Wii clones, are there any that actually play Wii games?

    "globe looking thing"? - was it a GameSphere from "Drake & Josh"?

    Anyway, I saw that 'clone' at Walgreen's as well. Right next to top items like "Bendaroos" and "Moon Sand". I picked them all up along with an 8-pack ShamWow. My life is complete.
