Just after bidding on a cheap "authentic Famicom" on eBay, I noticed that it had a minor difference compared to the other pictures of a Famicom that I've seen on the web, which made my suspicions about the item I won grow. And my suspicions got worse when I noticed that the same seller was selling another Famicom-lookalike that did not even have the Nintendo logo on it!

Here is the suspect Famicom I won on eBay:

Comparing it to other pictures of the Famicom (for example, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Famicom.jpg ), there seems to be writing in chinese above the "Nintendo" logo on its front side, and the writing on the power&reset label is chinese as well. While the unit might still be an original Famicom system, China uses PAL and not NTSC to my knowledge, so the auction describing it as authentic AND NTSC would still be incorrect.

And just for reference, here is the other Famicom that was auctioned by the seller, which misses a Nintendo logo altogether:

I hope someone here can help me clear things up. I need to know the truth ASAP!

(sorry for double-posting, but I need a quick answer)
