Move over Vii: introducing the 7-in-1 console

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 r...

Vii 2 designed for 'THEM,' now blue

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 ...

PS3 clone is a genuine 'Winner'

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...

We can make Vii stronger, faster

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.

Vii would like to be gutted

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...

Engadget rips open the Vii

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, ...

Today's Vii-est video: Vii commercial

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...

Vii would like to advertise

How hilarious is this Vii thing? We can't believe the unit is even being bought by some people, let alone making enough money to warrant advertising. But, sure enough, here we sit talking about a commercial for the thing. We're kind of tempted to track one down ourselves to see how bad the included...
