Great Product - Only needed for some games,
This review is from: Nintendo Nunchuk Controller Add-On (Wii) (Video Game)
I am confused by some of the other reviewers saying this is not an original wii controller?!? I purchased one from Argos in March of last year and 2 on Amazon in April of last year. The one from Argos came in original wii packaging and in no way appeared to be an unofficial wii nunchuk. The ones I bought from Amazon came in the same original packaging as the one I bought from Argos and also in no way appeared to be unofficial wii nunchuks. The packaging and nunchuk from Argos was identical to the ones I bought from Amazon. The only difference was I paid more at Argos. In the box was all the official wii paperwork, etc. I don't know about these other people, but my nunchuks were official wii controllers in the proper box. If I thought for one second these were not official I would have returned them straight away due to my own personal taste. To purchase unofficial wii controllers is not illegal. They sell them in lots of well known shops along with the unofficial wii wheels, etc. There are lots of things you can buy non-branded that are not illegal. Buying non branded squash isn't illegal. Buying non brand batteries is not illegal. Bottom-line is sometimes you get what you pay for if you buy off brand so that is why you should think twice before buying certain things that are non brand. It may be cheap, but it can also be false economy.
This nunchuk however is not a fake, unless Argos is selling the same fake, which is not likely. We have a few games that require the nunchuk and one in particular is a regularly played favourite game, thus these controllers are used regularly and we have not had one issue with any of them. They do what they are supposed to do and they work perfectly every time. All 3 of them. I would not hesitate to purchase this item again from Amazon and I would highly recommend it. It works perfectly and is well worth the money if you have games that require the nunchuk and my nunchuks were official.....
