Wii, Vii, now MiWi

Eittek’s MiWi, an attempt to improve on the Wii and the Vii

The superiority of Chinese engineering and their unique appreciation of intellectual property evidently know no bounds; first came the Wii, then the Chintendo Vii, and now a new successor emerges in the form of Eittek’s originally named MiWi.

This fine product continues in the same vein as the Vii, bringing you advanced cartridge based 16bit gaming reminiscent of the Wii at a vastly reduced price point. The erstwhile wireless controllers and sports games clearly aim to compete with Nintendo’s offering. As seems to be usual with these products, in game shots seem to be sadly lacking…

More pictures are mirrored below. Brought to my attention by GameSpark, with English info here and Chinese info here.

Chintendo Vii Hands On

You may be familiar with the Chintendo Vii, a console “resembling” the Nintendo Wii which makes use of superior Chinese engineering and intellectual property, and this outstanding product has recently hit the shores of Japan. Actual hands on play details had been lacking until now, but over at Inside a fine and much anticpated look at both the hardware and now the software is now up; see here and here for the hardware, and here for the all important software. Nintendo may have some serious competition on their hands. You will also be delighted to know that foraying to some suspicious backstreet Akiba shop to get yours is unnecessary; even Amazon are stocking it!
