The latest in the short line of Wii knockoffs, this product is made by the China Shenzhen Firstsing Company Limited and might just be the best of the bunch of knockoffs already on the market. Featuring some stellar 16-bit graphics, it offers everything someone who's too cheap to buy the cheapest re...

The Vii (or Vii 2, for that matter) not really providing all the satisfaction you were craving when you first acquired it? Don't hang your head in shame, dear boy, there's another option for you yet! China Shenzhen Firstsing Company Limited, the same company who provided the totally unnecessary coo...

Meet Vii 2, the second generation faux Wii that's been downgraded to a baby blue box reminiscent of the NES – or is that supposed to be a PS3? The new Vii has been formatted for NTSC & PAL standards and now bears several warnings: THIS IS NOT A Wii – it will not play Wii games...

Understandably, you've likely gotten tired of hearing about the Chintendo Vii and now yearn for a truly next-gen knockoff. Allow us to bestow that description upon the Phony "Winner," a marvelous new device which not only (and poorly) apes the PlayStation 3's aesthetics, but the Vii's motion-sensin...

The Vii now has some real competition in the knockoffware market. ENG Electric Co., a Taiwanese company, plans to introduce a new console called the Winner, which combines the best aspects of both the PlayStation 3 and the Wii in a package that is less expensive than either. That is, if the best as...

An eager tipster sent in a pic and some info on what appears to be some sort of PS3 clone called "Winner" – think Vii meets PS3. While the Vii concentrated on mimicking (horribly, but still) the Wii's feature set, the Winner is all about mimicking the PS3's myriad media functionalities. That...

When the Vii was cracked open and shown for what it was, the joke system became that much more hilarious. But the thing did well enough to warrant a successor, apparently. As we first put eyes on this new and improved version of the original, we were thankful that thing at least looks less like an...

Hot on the heels of the original, massively successful Vii, comes the Vii 2, this time from "Kensington." We're pretty hot on the NES-inspired design and ergonomic, soft-touch Vii-mote, but seriously -- a "porwer" button? Time to start bringing the A-game, guys. Check a few more pics after the brea...

Remember that YouTube video with the adorable kittens that sounded like they were talking to each other, that somebody put fake subtitles on and made hilarious? Well, this is exactly like that, except instead of purrs and meowing, it's Chinese, and it features everybody's favorite console ripoff: T...

If it were us, we'd probably think of a much better way to disassemble this thing. Probably with a rock or by dropping it down a large flight of stairs. Sure, it's not the most practical way to see how many hamsters are running around on metal wheels inside the thing, powering its massive processor...

When the robots revolt and decide to overthrow humanity this is the sort of video that will be part of their propaganda films, convincing the on-the-fence robots that humanity is a plague that needs to be cleansed from the earth. Watch as the Engadget Chinese staffers rip open a helpless Vii (yes,...

Are you sick of the Vii yet? Because we're not. We don't really have a clue what's being said in this 4-minute commercial, but it honestly doesn't matter. What matters are the re-used clips of the same girl playing the same game, the Vii's flying wildly through space, and the creepily voyeu...
