Great deal assuming they are as responsive as nintendo controllers and that you dont get stung by customs.
[mod]#3
i have never been stung by customs as they always tick 'gift' on the packet

i've been looking for a couple of cheap extra sets for multiplaying, but not sure what the quality of these will be like, i've decided to take the risk though and order 1 set as dealextreme rarely lets me down, then if the're good enough i'll go back for another, if not i'll be ordering the genuine set from dealextreme for an extra £10.
good spot though, heat up.

Actually, as these are OEM, they should be made by the people who make nintendo ones (i.e exactly the same).

Or am I mistaken.

Has anyone got stung by customs for a dealextreme order?
#8
| personally would be very dubious of the "quality" of these, the fact the manufacturer of these is clearly making them look as close as possible to the original Wii controllers including identical looking packaging shows they are deliberately out to market "fakes" rather than actually brand their own 3rd party controllers.

You would have to question WHY market deliberate fakes, rather than trying to establish their 3rd party controllers as decent replacements to Nintendos.

# OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) The maker of equipment marketed by another vendor, usually under the name of the reseller. The OEM may make only certain components or complete devices, which can then be configured with software and/or hardware by the reseller.

Yes you would be correct if these were TRUE OEM products, they are not, take a look at the website and the photos including the box which is deliberately designed to immitate Nintendos, the wording is laughable....

"The Nunchuk cannot be used by itself. Just together work with remote"
"in order to avoid to drop off"

And many more chinglish errors.

Won't ninitendo be on their case then rather sharpish as I thought they hated replicas?

Not such a good deal really when you can pick up originals for about £30.
#12
They look 'real' apart in the photos from the lack of branding but the amount of punishment these controllers take I think I'll wait to see if these are produced by Nintendo or more likely 3rd party clones.

Is it legal to sell fakes which are identical clones of the original Nintendo design without Nintendo's approval? 3rd party controllers normally look a bit different from the officials!

I would believe its illegal, hence why all third party controllers on the market may mimic the appearance of original remotes but have their differences, look at all gamecube, ps2 controllers etc all have differences. I would question why whoever this company are doing this, refer to my post #9 I somehow cannot see an exact factory producing two lines of Wii remotes, exactly the same plastic mouldings just without the Wii logo on, it doesn't make economic sense! unless the "OEM" ones were some sort of seconds, blemishes in plastic etc.

Its cold from me......
#14
Fakes do not a good deal make. Very cold.
#15
Any proof that these are the same items that Nintendo use? If not, theres no choice but to vote cold.
#16
I just looked at the profile of my Wii Nunchuck and there are differences in shape, most notably the analogue stick shape so these are not just standard wii controllers without the branding as far as I can see....
#17
I noticed in Game today that they've started selling 3rd party 'Game' branded nunchucks - the first i've seen other than the nyko wireless ones! £14.99 too! :eek:

i've ordered loads from deal extreme and never had to pay customs.

Definate fakes, be careful

love the fact that there is now an option. If these work well and are alot cheap then why not! I've ordered a few and will let you know how '****' they are. EMS usually ships my stuff to my door within about 7-9 days.
#24
With regards to the packaging, the fact that the packaging is poor and contains spelling and grammatical errors or "chinglish" as you call it, bear's no relevence when assessing if the item is OEM or not. Do you think Nintendo employ a single manufacturer to both manufacture/build product and design packaging? of course they dont. When you purchase OEM computer parts, what do they come in? thats right a brown box, not retail packaging.

For me, I reckon these might be genuine units that have failed quality control on a cosmetic basis, some company (perhaps DX) have purchased said "defects", and, rather than send them out in a brown box, have employed a packaging company to design retail boxes on the cheap.

I tried to buy these from Deal extreme when they was priced abit more at the time before in early November last year i think anyway got told they'd been dispatched and they never turned up all i got was excuses saying they was going refund me and then they wouldn't and i had to chase them for about 4 months to get money refunded ....voted cold after my experince cheap or not :roll:

First time I've seen a OEM or copy.. definitely wasn't the same deal back in November as far as I'm aware.

I too missed out on the cheap original sets back then but I've personally never experienced anything bad from them apart for the occassional broken part or a small 2 buck item.. not worth the hassle of claiming... anyway I anxiously await my goods :)
#27
The Chinese manufacturers had problems making clone Xbox (original) DVD remotes, I dread to think how long these Wii remotes will last.
#28
Why not just bookmark the page and wait for the first reviews to appear on DX? They tend to be pretty honest and allow for criticism of their products so it won't be too hard to get an idea of how good these are.
#29
These can't be OEM. I've just had a look at my nunchucks & it's definitely a slightly different design to these.

There is a plastic elipse (maybe a light?) on the join of the nunchuck. If they were OEM, the design would be the same as nintendo's

edit: just had a closer look at some of the other pictures & looks like its a sticker :oops:
#30
these are not OEM, they are OEM Replacements.
#31
FAKE

Only an idiot would buy this **** to save a few quid.

Note they are carefully NOT saying these are the same as you would buy. Works "just like" proper ones. And I bet it does. Not.
#32
in DX's defense, I've recently bought "OEM" versions of the Wii zapper, replacement power calble, video cable and sensor bar (so I can transfer console from room to room) and they've all been 100% spot on, hard to tell them apart.

A piece of plastic, a power line, a simple video cable and two flashing LED's? Little easier than whats in the Wii remote. :p
#34
wiimote includes plastic, power line, cables, flashing leds and a few bits extra so i'm not convinced.
I ordered a set, if they're **** I can just give them to whoever I'm gonna whup at wii-sports for an extra advantage :D

Thanks for filling in any gaps I may have made in post #14 :roll: However WHY not then market them as OEM in brown boxes rather than try to immitate Nintendo's box packaging and utilising bad Chinglish writing, somethings fishy if you ask me.
#36
It's a false economy if people believe that by buying these cheap wiimotes and nunchuks will save them money. In the long run I will always buy genuine articles. A little more expensive but at least I can rest assure that they will be a perfect fit for my Wii. The fact that people fret about whether or not the controllers they buy will be compatible with their console is an extra worry I can frankly do without!

Let's just look at both sides of the coin:

1) The 'dodgy' controllers are perfect! They work great and last you many years! WOOT! Congratulations, you save £15!

However,

2) they are the pain in the **** people warned you about and breaks down like a schoolgirl whose puppy you just ran over! Twice! Commiserations you lose £60! Why £60? Because you now have to buy the genuine articles to replace the missing controllers and curse the manufacturers for giving **** quality products! Write a hasty and strongly worded email detailing how much pain you will inflict upon them, their family and pets!

So to conclude, on average you could actually lose £45 in the long run! But hey, maybe you'll be lucky and get a decent set of controllers that do work well! Good luck and try not to worry so much!
#37
cold - hassle and only £5 in it for a fake and the straps aren't v soft!
#38
The point was, and still is, you cannot say for definite that they are fakes/not OEM based purely on the packaging.

Unfortunately, none of us are in a position to answer your WHY question, until some of us actually receive our items there's quite a bit of guesswork involved. DX buy in a lot of their goods from other suppliers, perhaps there are other companies out there selling these as OEM in brown boxes, with DX deciding to try and design a proper box (with poor spelling and grammatical as a consequence) to get one up on competitors.

Who knows, if they turn out to be guff they can always be RMA'd
