    are ebay wii remotes and nunchucks any good?

    There seems to be tons of Wii Remotes and Numchucks on ebay from china are they the real deal and work the same as the one that comes with the machine???

    looking at getting something like this

    Nunchuck and Remote controller for Nintendo Wii + Case - eBay Wii, Nintendo, Accessories, Video Games. (end time 17-Nov-09 21:50:11 AEDST)

    yeah that seems legit. If it says OEM then your good. That means its from the original manufactors. If its a non oem, it means its a bootleg, or third party product.

    I wondered these also, in the end late one night i won a remote/nunchuk/jacket for AUD$ 27 delivered, i thought for the money i'd risk it - when i got it had japanese nintendo stickers on it and from i can tell and what the seller said was that it was a japanese oem item and certainly looks and feels and works like my 2 other genuine remotes.

    I bought one off ebay, around $30 shipped for remote and nunchuck - shipped from Brooklyn. Looks authentic except for a couple small stickers inside the battery area. Using this the cursor is twitchy in most games, but everything else seems to work normal.

    Personally, I don't know if I would buy again.

    with all due respect, i will never order anything with ELECTRONIC MOVING PARTS from ebay... theres no warranty or guarantee at all for it to work... the last time i tried to order a mouse and webcam from from ebay and sadly they both DOA...

    since then i never bought anything from ebay with moving parts involved. thats just my 2 cents
