    Stumbled upon this...the package in the pic actually says "Wireless Nunchunk" How can anyone be so f'in stupid to create or sell that with such an obvious misspelling? The packaging even looks like Nintendo and has that small little Wii icon/picture that Wii products have on their packaging. I don't understand people sometimes.

    Here's the link:

    Doesn't LOOK bad. Personally, I'd like a wireless SNES controller or something though.

    It's obviously a cheap Chinese knockoff with that kind of Engrish [​IMG]

    I always go by "If the spelling or grammar ain't right, the product ain't right", so it may be cheap [​IMG]

    My favourite Engrish saying though is "Keep knife out of children". Who translates these products? [​IMG]

    Maybe its the Engrish (though isn't nunchuck an Asian word anyway?) but then maybe its to avoid trademark or licensing payouts.

    That would be Nunchaku and its Japanese, although the root word is actually chinese .

    I vote the package is actually Engrish [​IMG]

    It's not a misspelling, its a scam. If they get reported for sending fake nintendo products, their ebay page will be removed. But to an average person who just didn't notice, and buy it, they have no argument against the seller because it wasn't advertised as a Nintendo trademarked product.
