New Chinese Game Console Totally Rips Off The Wii Remote

New Chinese Game Console Totally Rips Off the Wii Remote

This is the controller for a new game console called the Nintendo Wii the G20. Doesn't the controller look familiar?

According to TechInAsia, the console is a collaboration between Chinese online retail giant Alibaba and electronics company Xiao Bawang. The G20 runs on Aliyun OS, Alibaba's Linux smartphone OS, and can also stream movies and television programs. It's not a Nintendo console.

This isn't the first Chinese entertainment device to feature a Wii Remote-inspired controller. It probably won't be the last either.

So far, the games shown for the console include ping pong, a snowball fight game, and according to TechInAsia, one that really looks like Fruit Ninja.

The G20 is available exclusively through Alibaba's Tmall. The online retail page features some terrible Photoshops:

    This is a pretty cool console. i love how it plays Nintendo roms... that's funnier than the controller lol.

    I guess, that's the price these companies pay by getting their goods manufactured in China. Patent stealing is big business in China. Build an "official" building to manufacture the real product, build next door to make the locally sold knock-off.

    How do they get away with this??

      Well, the Chinese government doesn't give a shit. So they're safe, essentially, as long as they don't sell their garbage outside china.
