Tales of counterfeit DS games are nothing new, but 1UP's Jeremy Parish believes he's come across a counterfeit DS Lite. With the news that the handheld will soon disappear from retail shelves, Parish set about procuring an Apple Green unit. Ordering what appeared to be a legitimate system from a...

NGP and Xbox 360 unite, birth Chinese knockoff

No, Sony and Microsoft didn't finally decide to kiss, make up and release an incredible Xbox 360 / NGP hybrid. What you see above is in fact the iReadyGo RG.

If a Genesis and a Wii had a baby, it would be Sega Zone

You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of sight and sound but of retro games. A journey into a wondrous console containing a bunch of old Genesis games and some generic motion-controlled games. That's the signpost up ahead. Your next stop: the Sega Zone. Pocket Lint...

Is that a PSP Go? Nope, it's a PSP Faux

Look, China -- we need to have a talk. We know you're back up to your old tricks again, trying to sell people knock-offs of Sony's new PSP Go handheld. We thought you learned your lesson last time? You had made all of these promises, told us how you were going to get your life back on track and...

DS Daily: DS-like

Red PSP in early? No, it's just a fake PNP

Many of us here at PSP Fanboy find the sexy red God of War PSP a worthy object to lust over. This faker called the PNP, on the other hand, is definitely not. While its emulation of the PSP's likeness is sub-par, it is quite easy to be fooled at a quick glance. If you look closer, you'll see a...
