I can understand why someone would want to buy a product that they can just hook up to the TV, power on and start playing without hassle. But I don't get the point of putting a fake keyboard on it.

That joystick looks a lot like a C64DTV so a teardown would indeed be very interesting. The DTV was a proper ASIC design and a modern version of that with HDMI output would be nice. Then if the joystick is lousy, one could just pull out the board inside to get to the C64 which can hopefully be modded as much as a real C64DTV.
