Psp Clone Plays Retro NES Games

Psp Clone Plays Retro NES Games
Sure, this portable gaming system might LOOK just a little bit like the Sony PSP, but don’t expect it to play any games made in the last 15 years. Another in a long line of cheap Chinese knock-off systems, the 2PG TC8281 handheld plays a mish-mash of questionable 8-bit and 16-bit retro games that come only on special multi-game cartridges.

Clone Trooper Voice Changing Helmet: Send in the Clones

Clone Trooper Voice Changing Helmet: Send in the Clones
With the new Clone Wars animated film hitting theaters next week, why not show up to the premiere in style? This new helmet not only makes you look like a Clone Trooper, it lets you sound like one too.

They’Ve Got Wii-Sports, We’Ve Got V-Sports

They’Ve Got Wii-Sports, We’Ve Got V-Sports
Too cheap to buy a Nintendo Wii? Then look no further than the latest Wii knock-off to find its way from the streets of China. The V-Sports console from Hong Kong electronics outfit Rumdes does its best to copy the motion controller concept of Wii Sports, but without any of those pesky Nintendo games.

Sci-Phone: iPhone Clone Runs Java Apps, Still Phony

Sci-Phone: iPhone Clone Runs Java Apps, Still Phony
Nope, your eyes aren’t fooling you. This isn’t an actual iPhone. It’s the latest in a long line of iPhone knock-offs to find its way to our shores from China. The SciPhone isn’t the first iPhone clone out there, but it’s the first one I’ve seen that claims to run native Java applications.

Miwi Game Console is Nothing Like a Wii, Really.

Miwi Game Console is Nothing Like a Wii, Really.
Here’s the latest, greatest, phoniest knock-off console to surface from China. While the MiWi video game system might steal some of its looks from the Nintendo Wii, that’s about where the similarities end. Created by China’s Eittek Electronics, the 9800 MiWi video game system comes with a pair of wireless controllers which do their best to mock Wii-motes.

Px-3600 Console Fakes Xbox, PS2, PS3, Wtf?

Px-3600 Console Fakes Xbox, PS2, PS3, Wtf?
Just the other day, I showed you guys a really crummy PS3 knock-off, but I think this videogaming oddity surely trumps that one. This strange little console can’t decide whether it wants to be an Xbox, a PlayStation 2, 3, or something else altogether.

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3
You’ve gotta hand it to those cheap Chinese knock-off manufacturers. At least they attempt to keep up with the latest gaming consoles when they crank out their crap. Case in point, this awful PS3 copy known as the PolyStation 3.

Ifone is One Phony iPhone

Ifone is One Phony iPhone
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But sometimes, a crummy copy is just a crummy copy. Take for example, this poor Taiwanese knock-off of the Apple iPhone. This thing makes no bones about its source of inspiration.

Mobile Phone Offers NES Emulation, Mystery Windows Key

Mobile Phone Offers NES Emulation, Mystery Windows Key
Here’s a suspicious looking mobile phone from China that manages to infringe on at least a couple of prominent brands in one feature-packed device. When opened up, the ZTC 8898 mobile not only looks mimics of the looks of HTC’s QWERTY phones, it claims to “simulate” 8-bit NES games too.

Clone Wars: iPod Nano Knock-Offs Under $50

Clone Wars: iPod Nano Knock-Offs Under $50
I’ll start out by saying this. Steve Jobs and company will no longer like you if you buy one of these. But for those of you who are too stingy to drop $149 to $199 on a real iPod Nano, here’s a cheap Chinese knock-off that’s a dead ringer for Apple’s chunky little 3rd-generation media player.

What the iPhone Could have Looked Like

What the iPhone Could have Looked Like
Leave it to the cheap Chinese knock-off makers to produce this red headed stepchild of an iPod and a mobile phone. While it sort of looks like an iPod Classic, it slides open to reveal a phone.

The Clone Wars: Xbox 360 Vs Playstation 2

The Clone Wars: Xbox 360 Vs Playstation 2
You’ve got to hand it to these junkmeisters for their creativity. Check out these slightly familiar video game consoles from a schlock shop down in Mexico. I’m not sure whether I like the X-Game 360 or the PowerStation 2 better, but these cheap packaging copies are clearly designed to fool some unsuspecting buyer into thinking they’re getting a great deal on a real console.

Wii-Mote Knock Off Spotted at Wally World

Wii-Mote Knock Off Spotted at Wally World
It was bound to happen sooner or later. Every cool looking electronic device, from the Apple iPhone to the Sony PSP eventually gets its case design copied, usually with some sort of unrelated junk stuffed under the hood of the doppelgänger.

Windows Mobile Users Ask: Who Needs an iPhone?

Windows Mobile Users Ask: Who Needs an iPhone?
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the user interface designers over at Apple should be feeling pretty good about themselves these days. We’ve seen everything from knock-off devices, to an online screen smudge simulator, to PSP-based menu frontends.

Worst Computer Ever

Worst Computer Ever
Check out this rare DELTA-C vintage Soviet computer (if you can call 1991 “vintage”) that I found over on eBay. It’s apparently a clone of the classic Sinclair ZX personal computer, but it sure looks like something you’d find down in a Dharma station on LOST.

The $10 Playstation 3

The $10 Playstation 3
The guys over at Destructoid dug up this $10 beauty. It’s a cheap gaming system which looks NOTHING like Sony’s PlayStation 3, but has the audacity to package itself as a “SONY PS3.” The system actually appears to be one of those shoddy “Famiclone” systems designed to play old games from the Nintendo Entertainment System (aka “Famicom” in Japan.)
