Purchased my Wii unit from Gurney Plaza and included additional remote which I got charged around RM300 for. Shop claims the remote is for Korean Market but it comes with the Plastic Packaging. No Korean word found on the back at all. Either the shop got conned themselves or they are conning yes? biggrin.gif Found some issues with usability and went on looking at the unit more closely. Found the differences below. Anyone else has this similar Wii Remotes to compare with please check with the images below and throw it back to the game shop for cheating.

Attached Image
Attached Image
1) Wii - Printing Grey Difference. Fake seems lighter.
2) LED's on the original are Matte, the Fake is Clear. And when it lights up you can see the difference.
3) Speaker - Original one shows some metal reflection whereas the Fake shows a deep...emptiness.
4) Home Button - Original shows to be lighter colored.
5) Button A - Fake remote has a darker imprint of the Letter.
6) Directional Buttons on the Original is Matte, Fake is reflective.
7) Power Button - Fake remote has a darker RED.

1) Plastic Finishing has Burrs on the Fake remote & the clip end for the battery cover. You can see the GAP difference.
2) Original Side printing is NON reflective. No matter what way you look at it. Fake printing reflects light and is printed LESS CLEARLY.

Attached Image
1) Gold connector protrudes from the side outwards above the plastic step.
2) Same bad quality Burrs that are probably from bad plastic molding.

Attached Image
Attached Image
1) Plastic Burrs all over the place! Take note of the differences in plastic position and steps and bla bla. I compared Real Korean and the taiwan model i have they are 100% the same. The Fake "Korean" model is different everywhere.
2) Battery compartment SPONGE is missing on the FAKE model.
3) Nunchuk connector is DIFFERENT.
4) Plastic Burrs, more plastic burrs, plastic mold defect, different places everywhere.
5) Sync button different color red. Plastic different too.

Attached Image
1) This is the one that prompted me to believe this is a fake. Nintendo uses TRI WING screws for their products all the way to Nintendo Gameboy and before. Why must this be different on an original yes?
2) Original has printing ALL THE WAY throughout the cable length, Fake has NONE. The color is different too, and the Length of the fake is longer.
3) Different plastic everywhere too.
4) Connector head metal components are different. Feels very stiff when you stick it into an original Wii remote or the Fake one.




***Issues with Fake***

Honestly, if it worked fine I wouldnt give it a second thought. But below are the problems faced. Can the viewers and owners of Wii post pictures of your wii remote if its of a different make/? Japan or USA if possible so we can see the clearer differences.!!!

1) Speaker level not adjustable and is very noisy.
2) Battery Drains out VERY FAST.
3) Sensitivity is bad in general, remote seems responsive enough to not really notice.
4) Vibration is less smooth.
5) They sold the remote to me as Original price. I am super pissed off right now but I need to check with anyone else out there that has similar remotes like mine and same problems.


***UPDATE*** Korean, Taiwan, Fake Pictures side by side.

Took a comparison check between the Korean Wii Remote that came with the set, a taiwan remote, and the suspect fake.
You guys check the differences out. All remotes are MADE IN CHINA, other than slight cosmetic differences there shouldn't be any other major differences. Cheers~



**********LATEST UPDATE MARCH 09*****************

Well then, I got some time on my hands and a Tri-Wing Screw Driver Set... So here's the latest update as compared to the below link.

http://www.yyjoy.com/html/10/n-327810.html

I found my Fake remote to be 100% Fake by comparing the insides. So seriously you guys with Wii Remotes, should check out the outside appearance and make sure you own a REAL remote if you paid Original price for it. I went back to the shop and demanded that they replaced the Wii Remote for me but they wanted a receipt which i forgot to bring so, im going back tomorrow =) Im demanding cash back, i dont trust the shop any more.

Be shocked!

No wonder the vibration felt different, no wonder the sensitivity sucks. Screw you shops that sell fake stuff. Hi-tec consumer ownz you!

OMG~! This is eye opening... I didn't believe there were FAKE Wiimotes and Nunchuks around when friends told me about it.

Your observations seem true. Those fakes are definitely fakes, their build qualities are so bad.

Luckily though, I bought mine much much earlier, last year in fact, I haven't got the fake ones. And at that time, IMHO there are no fakes made yet.

EDIT: Thanks for bringing this up TS~! I'll have to warn friends, and keep an eye out for those FAKES~!

Yep, got ripped of RM300 for a fake. Well I wasn't there when my brother bought the Wii tongue.gif
Again, if they sold us a "fake" remote at a cheap price i wouldn't even bother but we got it at ORI price.

XEN -v- gK > looking forward to your pictures, after i collect all pictures from different makes i'll go back to the shop and make em pay me back.

Spread the word guys! Fake remotes sold at ori price! Rawr, to hell with those unruly business peoples!

The biggest sign of ori vs fake is the finishing. Those ppl who make the fake stuff are cheapskate bastards mar.

Pardon the crappy photos, taken using my phone.

Most noticeable different is the Sirim sticker near the B button.

honestly, i'm a proud wii owner myself, and am planning to buy another wii mote and nunchuck in the near future, where currently i just have the one which come with my korean wii purchase...

i believe that those where you buy with the wii, should be real...and if you buy the mote and nunchuck separately, you will have a higher probability to encounter a fake i guess

anyway, thanks for the information...and yea, my nunchuck from korea uses a tri wing screw...yours are philips...>.<", that's the only thing i can differentiate in the most obvious form...XD

the mote differences puzzles me...lol

I think the best way would the connection port head as pics above.

Also its quite easy to tell the poor built quality and buttons. However its not easy to tell through the naked eye unless you have felt the real thing before.

If you plan to buy ori just get them from a nintendo authorised reseller here in LYN... search up for ooj or Blackmango Games

i just bought a new set of mote and nunchuck...here's the story:

i went over to mid valley's nintendo shop...and enquired on it...
they bundle the mote with wii-play and have a price of rm 239 on it...as for the nunchuck, it's priced at rm 99...i was like...omg...rm340 for that whole thing...

well, anyway, i enquired on the nunchuck and wii-mote at another game shop in mid valley, and they selling those in a set for rm250...honestly, it looks original, the mote with the nintendo official seal and the nunchuck with the triwing screws...so, yea, a discount of rm90...XD

Guys, this is a thread to determine if the Wii Remote + Nunchuk purchased locally is fake or real and i was asking for pictures to compare tongue.gif
Not a thread to tell us where and how much you bought your remote for. Any hows you guys should check out the pictures and compare your remotes to see if it is real or fake.
3600mAh battery pack should have lasted forever! you'd want to check if the Remote is ori =P

I notice that the Fake wiimote has different FCC ID and IC# compared to ori Taiwan wiimote. The ori Taiwan wiimote has the exact same markings as my ori US wiimote.

Also, from photos provided by JasonSky, the fake has FCC ID and IC# of the Japan wiimote, while the Korean unit not supposed to have FCC ID and IC# at all. To say that it is a Korean unit then have Japan markings doesn't make sense.

Also, I'm not surprised that the fake isn't branded as Wü instead of Wii. Seems that most fakes are made by that company.

Updated Main Post. Took my remote apart and compared the insides.
A world of difference.

Printing is relatively Cheap, so no surprise they print Wii instead of Wuu, can sell for higher price.

I recently came across a fake remote too. And it's supposed to be a US wiimote. This didn't come from Nintendo but from one of the reputable suppliers. Even they were fooled!

Basically, try to get your wiimote changed if you get a fake. Force your retailer to do so because they should be able to get their supplier to swap it for an ori set. MAKE SURE you keep your box and receipt for the exchange!

I Agree, if its a fake, DEMAND that they refund or replace because if they dont you can go to the Tribunal for consumer affairs and lodge a report =)
That'll shake them a bit.

ok, first of all thank you for this through fake identifying guide and all the pictures.

mostly interesting, I think they have developed NEW fake models.

there are some changes, particularly you may change the volume now. and I didn't felt odd IR sensitivity. so the functionality has improved, but it still is a total fake when it does come down to quality.

there are still some points left

1. Gold connector (nunchuck connector) is shiny on the fake, mate on the original.

2. (still) LED's on the original are Matte, the Fake is Clear. And when it lights up you can see the difference, it hurts eye in the dark.

3. (still) Home Button - Original shows to be lighter colored. (some what all the buttons on the fake seem to darker.)

4. (still) Battery compartment SPONGE is missing on the FAKE model.

5. + - buttons are way stiff.

but what made me sure that this one is fake, is the fact that I unscrewed the nunchuck sold along with it, and when you are inside, there will be no lies: The build quality is abysmal and choppy, the board is different, there is an extra capacitor and ...

my only advice is that, always take your ori wiimote when going shoping, and never buy something that hasn't a PERFECT build quality as a Nintendo ori, or Sony ori. search for things like choppy plastics, rough metal parts, shiny cables and plastics and things like that.

the most disgusting part is that they counterfeit these craps as originals. I wouldn't mind if the shop told me that it is a fake, but this? screw them.

thx for sharing your info

I guess if u see clearly those are written as "Wu" instead of "Wii"
Doesnt know the difference of it but i wont advise to get Non Original Accessories.

Oh btw , the Ori ones are quite cheap nowdays compared to last year.

Hi all,

I got this Wiimote. After using a while, there is something loose inside. I checked all the pictures above and I don't see anything similar on the fake and my "loose" wiimote.

What do the Wii-community here thinks?

Thanks.

Try remembering how you have handled the Wii remote before. It could be because of that either.

Yes market got pirated wiimote and nunchuck almost half year

but
Korea Wii mote and nunchuck is original

those pirated wii mote and nunchuck is japan packing and the box is not include battery as well

why korea set (console/accesories(balance board,wiimote,nunchuck) is cheaper??

because Korea exchange currency is drop very bad

we can see nowaday market got alot korea wii set, PS3 korea games etc

my sis just bought a set of wii, she bought another set of controller, which the seller said is original.

from the pictures , i think she bought a "fake controller" .

the seller did mention the original set of controllers is different from the one we bought separately. but y different since he said is "original"?

should we go change the "fake controller"? how should we ask him to change to a original set controller? icon_question.gif

btw.. the " fake " is making loud noises. like....bad radio reception. annoying. cry.gif

The cable. There should be fine (But can be seen, just that it's lightly colored) printing along the cable. That and the connector has a tri-wing screws.

Thanks for this, I will use it for reference later on. Luckily my wiimote nunchuck combo is ORIGINAL!

Btw, no reference to check a fake motion + weyh? (If there's any)

i bought my fake nunchuk + wiimote for rm80 from some guy at lelong.com.my (i didnt know fake one exist at that time), the remote only usable for one day, no longer responsive after playing wii sport boxing. and the nunchuk getting loose after a week or so.

funny, the packaging looks ori enough to me. if only i knew the fake wiimote using philips type of screw instead of tri one.

btw anyone come across nyko wand product? i want to buy the wand+.

I bought a two sets of wiimote, nunchuck and motion plus from ebay (HK based sellers) and they come with the sleeves. I was half expecting them to be fakes because the prices were really really cheap.

There are certainly physical differences when compared to my original US and Korean sets (the HK ones have different printing quality, generally looser B buttons and battery covers)- but what do you know, they actually work like the real thing. In fact I am having more issues with my US controller which keeps getting wrong movement responses.

don't think u can walk into a shop and just grab it from the shelf. what u can do is approach shops that does wii repair/hard modding. they will deifnitely have 1. but the numbers r dwindling, coz wii softmod is more popular nowadays. but keep trying in LYN, u bound to stumble across something. try garage sale and post a WTB thread.

maybe u can post your pics focussing on the area where u think there are signs of fake. then we can compare for u.
u can find lot of detailed pics by googling but maybe u r looking for a microscopic differences. so i think is better u send and we can send our pics matching your pic.

good luck in your project. i never had interesting thesis like this during my days in uni. btw, anybody doing thesis about vitual reality. that's the future of gaming. when we look back at 2010 20 years from now, we be saying those were the days we play games on flat lcd tv and with odd looking game interfaces.

Recently i go sungei wang n walk2 till i found lots of game shop.
N...i was like...ask them about wii motion plus n price, n survery first.
The first shop say RM70. Of coz im excited coz kyo's RM85.
then 2nd shop rm85
3rd 95
4th 65 (OMG LOL)

Before i leave the 4th shop, he say "u better buy the original one la, RM80 ony. the rm 65 is fake one."

Then i leave the shop....n come back n start investigating

My dialogue:
Me: Can i see both fake n original one aa?
Seller: wait aa...
Seller: Fake one out of stock leh. Got original only.
Me: How i wana know fake n original one?
Seller: the fake one if u swing, it's not accurate like original.
Me: erm erm...fine i take the original one."testing for the sake of other wii user".
Me: eh, how i wana know mine not fake one?
Seller: There, i gv bill/receipt. N oso if fake one, their box not as solid as original one. See here, solid wat.
Me: Fine2. But if fake, i come back hor.
Seller: Ok2.

THEREEEE, bought a japan M+.
I juz reach Penang today, n test M+. It's realy working well. Well...for now maybe...

So, anyone can clarify??

Btw, hope sumone can post photo of their M+ Japan box, n the M+ itself.

Tq. N hope this will increase the awareness of such product in Wii COMMUNITY.

well, it really isn't a surprise if a fake m+ is released in the market...so, i believe that there's fake ones out there already (and fake motion control tech can't get cheaper than real ones out there)

just be careful with your purchase...=) (and thank god that your seller is an "honest" person)

well
the tell tale signs of ORI m+ is u get the proper box (nice n hard)
the box has the words WII on the logo not WU.
the box will be long because it comes with a "free" condom casing which is to replace the original condom casing.

normally original m+ can be bargained to rm 80-85
cheaper than that prolly youre getting ripped

er...most likely from what they said, it comes with everything that it should come with...and it just "looks" real, if you get what i mean

maybe you would like to compare some pictures in the net to double check the "authenticity" of your m+ too as well

Back during the first GBA era, the ones made in Japan were actually inferior in screen clarity compared to the ones made in China.

tips on getting original accesories
wii remote - look for triwing screws by opening the battery compartment. (how do i explain this?)
nunchuck - look for triwing screws at the connector. (again, how do i explain this)
motion plus - this is quite tricky. original uses silicon cover. counterfeit one uses rubber. the easiest way to determine original items is by comparing motion + silicon with wii remote slicon. even the colour is different with counterfeit items.
balance board - look for serial number and original games. serial number is at the top lid. original games for korea is wii fit while us version is wii fit plus.
classic controller - look for triwing screws at the back.

if you want to buy wii, the best bet is buy virgin wii(unmodded). most technician stupidly install cioscorp/darkcorp which is IMHO troublesome. (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/54963-how-uninstall-cioscorp-your-wii-console.html) removing this VERY2 risky. the easiest way to determine whether cioscorp/darkcorp is installed is by testing whether the wii can play old pirate game through disc channel. there are other BETTER way. youll regret later if you have darkcorp. trust me.

if you buy black wii, the dvd rom drive can ONLY play original game media. if you buy wii with LU64+ (eg LU64, LU65, LU66 etc) the dvd rom drive can ONLY play original game media. you still can play with usb drive though(this applies to all wii). you can find wii serial number from the bottom of the wii.

do not update wii firmware from nintendo. do not enable internet connection on your wii(unless you know what you doing) do not update firmware from game(if the game ask whether you want to update when you want to play the game). safe to say, DO NOT UPDATE YOUR WII. unless you know what you doing of course.

it is better in the long run and less risky(unbrickable brick!) if you buy us set wii. most retailer sell korean set wii which is cheaper. the problem with korean wii is that, it is in korean. the only way to enable english language is by installing us firmware. troulble arises when the wii firmware is updated. when its firmware is updated, the wii will be 'rosak' and cannot be repaired(it is possible to repair, but very2 expensive) the easies way to determine region set is by looking at the serial number. us set started with LU and korean set started with LK.

unlike other console, there are a lot of junk game on wii. and its not even funny. nevertheless, there are quite few great gems on wii. try it, or you will got bored with your wii in no time.

unlike any other console, wii is best play with friends. make sure to buy a lot of controller accesories for wii to ensure full enjoyment not present in other console. recommended - 4 wii remote, 2 nunchucks(4 if you want, but there are few games that support 4 nunchuck, and even fewer that worth the trouble), 2 classic controller plus, balance board.

if you want to homebrew, look for guidance form wiibrew.com, wiihacks.com(the best), complete softmod guide(google the link) and gbatemp. dont take advice and download stuff from unreputable people on the net or you risking bricking you wii.

shop around in lowyat. dont make decision quickly. shop around. if you want to buy from lowyat forum members, stevie of heavyarm is highly recommended. bought few items from him and satisfied.

imho.

tips on getting original accesories
wii remote - look for triwing screws by opening the battery compartment. (how do i explain this?)
nunchuck - look for triwing screws at the connector. (again, how do i explain this)
motion plus - this is quite tricky. original uses silicon cover. counterfeit one uses rubber. the easiest way to determine original items is by comparing motion + silicon with wii remote slicon. even the colour is different with counterfeit items.
balance board - look for serial number and original games. serial number is at the top lid. original games for korea is wii fit while us version is wii fit plus.
classic controller - look for triwing screws at the back.

if you want to buy wii, the best bet is buy virgin wii(unmodded). most technician stupidly install cioscorp/darkcorp which is IMHO troublesome. (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/54963-how-uninstall-cioscorp-your-wii-console.html) removing this VERY2 risky. the easiest way to determine whether cioscorp/darkcorp is installed is by testing whether the wii can play old pirate game through disc channel. there are other BETTER way. youll regret later if you have darkcorp. trust me.

if you buy black wii, the dvd rom drive can ONLY play original game media. if you buy wii with LU64+ (eg LU64, LU65, LU66 etc) the dvd rom drive can ONLY play original game media. you still can play with usb drive though(this applies to all wii). you can find wii serial number from the bottom of the wii.

Ur in the wrong area to ask this.

And if ur worried about getting cheated, buying a modified Wii is already getting cheated itself.

Its ur call.

Welcome to Wii and I am glad you made the right choice!!

from my experience:

korean units are ok, as long as you dont mess with updates. or ask them to install prii to prevent updates.
the korean units are modded to have english menus.
but any official updates (over the internet or via new game discs) will brick it.
update only if some newer games cannot play, and send back to shop for update.
these units are typically modded to play pirated games.
the sellers would say "these are korean/asian units with english menu"

look for lyn sellers like kyo.


otherwise, go for USA units. look for heavyarm. he got a 2nd hand unit to sell.
these are much better, less likely to brick
these have no issue updating to the latest softwarre over the internet.
usually sold as unmodded. means ori cd only.

my recomendation is to get from gamers hideout in e@curve, jaya jusco in mid valley.


oh ya.. if u buy from stalls, look out for fake wiimotes, nunchucks, and motionplus.

Just to clarify, I don't sell pirated units.

Also, I do sell the authentic Asian version that's shipped from Singapore. The region is purely US.

Purchased my Wii unit from Gurney Plaza and included additional remote which I got charged around RM300 for. Shop claims the remote is for Korean Market but it comes with the Plastic Packaging. No Korean word found on the back at all. Either the shop got conned themselves or they are conning yes? biggrin.gif Found some issues with usability and went on looking at the unit more closely. Found the differences below. Anyone else has this similar Wii Remotes to compare with please check with the images below and throw it back to the game shop for cheating.

Attached Image
Attached Image
1) Wii - Printing Grey Difference. Fake seems lighter.
2) LED's on the original are Matte, the Fake is Clear. And when it lights up you can see the difference.
3) Speaker - Original one shows some metal reflection whereas the Fake shows a deep...emptiness.
4) Home Button - Original shows to be lighter colored.
5) Button A - Fake remote has a darker imprint of the Letter.
6) Directional Buttons on the Original is Matte, Fake is reflective.
7) Power Button - Fake remote has a darker RED.

Attached Image
Attached Image
1) Plastic Finishing has Burrs on the Fake remote & the clip end for the battery cover. You can see the GAP difference.
2) Original Side printing is NON reflective. No matter what way you look at it. Fake printing reflects light and is printed LESS CLEARLY.

Attached Image
1) Gold connector protrudes from the side outwards above the plastic step.
2) Same bad quality Burrs that are probably from bad plastic molding.

Attached Image
Attached Image
1) Plastic Burrs all over the place! Take note of the differences in plastic position and steps and bla bla. I compared Real Korean and the taiwan model i have they are 100% the same. The Fake "Korean" model is different everywhere.
2) Battery compartment SPONGE is missing on the FAKE model.
3) Nunchuk connector is DIFFERENT.
4) Plastic Burrs, more plastic burrs, plastic mold defect, different places everywhere.
5) Sync button different color red. Plastic different too.

Attached Image
1) This is the one that prompted me to believe this is a fake. Nintendo uses TRI WING screws for their products all the way to Nintendo Gameboy and before. Why must this be different on an original yes?
2) Original has printing ALL THE WAY throughout the cable length, Fake has NONE. The color is different too, and the Length of the fake is longer.
3) Different plastic everywhere too.
4) Connector head metal components are different. Feels very stiff when you stick it into an original Wii remote or the Fake one.
***Issues with Fake***

Honestly, if it worked fine I wouldnt give it a second thought. But below are the problems faced. Can the viewers and owners of Wii post pictures of your wii remote if its of a different make/? Japan or USA if possible so we can see the clearer differences.!!!

1) Speaker level not adjustable and is very noisy.
2) Battery Drains out VERY FAST.
3) Sensitivity is bad in general, remote seems responsive enough to not really notice.
4) Vibration is less smooth.
5) They sold the remote to me as Original price. I am super pissed off right now but I need to check with anyone else out there that has similar remotes like mine and same problems.
***UPDATE*** Korean, Taiwan, Fake Pictures side by side.

Attached Image

Took a comparison check between the Korean Wii Remote that came with the set, a taiwan remote, and the suspect fake.
You guys check the differences out. All remotes are MADE IN CHINA, other than slight cosmetic differences there shouldn't be any other major differences. Cheers~
**********LATEST UPDATE MARCH 09*****************

Well then, I got some time on my hands and a Tri-Wing Screw Driver Set... So here's the latest update as compared to the below link.

http://www.yyjoy.com/html/10/n-327810.html

I found my Fake remote to be 100% Fake by comparing the insides. So seriously you guys with Wii Remotes, should check out the outside appearance and make sure you own a REAL remote if you paid Original price for it. I went back to the shop and demanded that they replaced the Wii Remote for me but they wanted a receipt which i forgot to bring so, im going back tomorrow =) Im demanding cash back, i dont trust the shop any more.

Be shocked!

No wonder the vibration felt different, no wonder the sensitivity sucks. Screw you shops that sell fake stuff. Hi-tec consumer ownz you!

i hope its note too late for me to warn any future buyer that wish to buy original wii remote + nunchuk. last 2 days i bought a set of wii + additional wii remote & nunchuk. the seller claims the additional wii remote+nunchuk is original as they won't carry any counterfeit accessories. at first glance, i can say that the wii remote from the wii set and the additional unit is identical. there's very minor cosmetic appearance due to manufacturing tolerance.

As we can see from the pictures below, there's nothing suspicious:

[attachmentid=2061763]

[attachmentid=2061764]

While playing any games, i can hardly tell any differences between both wii remotes. the sound, the rumble & the sensor sensitivity perform nearly identical. I just realise there's something wrong with the additional unit when i use it to browse the wii home menu. there's slight "gee-gee" sound when the unit rumble. I proceed to check all the button on the front face and i'm very surprised as both unit feel the same. The only difference is the B button. the original has a soft tapping sound while fake one produce hard clicking sound. The defect on the nunchuk are more easy to spot. The joystick feel stiffer and the cable is not as soft as the original. Clearly, the additional unit that i bought is fake .

[attachmentid=2061837]

That spot is the only cosmetic differences on the wii remote.

[attachmentid=2061841]

Differences on the nunchuk.

[attachmentid=2061846]

Nunchuk connector. They have learn from their mistake and now using tri-wing screw but fail to change the mould.

It just got me thinking why the seller are giving me fake unit when the seller confidently saying that the shop will not carry any fake product. I do believe it's not the seller fault and today, I decided to go back to the shop and show my findings. The seller is angry when she found out about the fake unit. She keep saying sorry to me and i told her it's not her fault. Clearly she being conned by the supplier or the supplier being conned by the importer or the importer being conned by the fake manufacturer. She replaced the unit without hesitation.

Seriously i'm very surprised to see the level of the fake product that they produced today. It's very hard to spot the difference. Man, they even use the tri-wing screw and produce near original look.
