Wii fit balance board- official or unofficial?

The wife is after one of these and I noticed you can get an unofficial one with wii fit plus for £20 less

Has anyone had the unofficial ones and is there actually much difference?

I looked into the unofficial ones briefly when buying a board but the reviews seemed all over the place for the unofficial ones with some people having various niggling issues with syncing the boards so I just went with the official one which works without issue.



My advice would be to get the official mate. I usually have no issue with alternative brands but I had the GameOn balance board and it was extremely unresponsive. I noticed a substantial difference when I purchased the Nintendo board and my scores improved dramatically when using it.

Cheers, I might as well spend the extra money and get an official one

I should imagine they will both gather dust equally well in a couple of months time...... :d

Yeah possibly but as I've got a ps3 and a 360, if she wants a wii I can't really argue!

I got this last week,50 quid,superb price.

Thinks like cables, especially digital ones, should be fine from a 3rd party. Controllers are rarely as good as the official ones.
