Will these ever come down to a realistic price?

I guess until PS4 is more affordable to all and there are more games for it, folk still find PS3 more accessible so accessories will still be pricey. I wouldn't pay £25 for a controller so not voting either way.

I feel price is excessive to, but when your controllers are broken and only crappy chinese alternatives exist, its either stop playing or bite the bullet.

Any recommendations for a cheaper non-offical version?

Red one now out of stock. Still white & pink available though.

No. When PS2 because really cheap preowned and it wasn't available to buy new any more, the preowned controllers were worth much more than the console. The controllers wear out, so they are always going to be more in demand.

Thanks for the contribution.

Pity they don't accept Amex

while on the subject of controllers I traded in all my ps3 stuff to game, taking advantage of the promise to beat cex trade ins by a pound. got £26 for a camo one and £23 for an original black one.
even move controllers fetched £5 each. Got over £400 of instore credit to buy a ps4

Original Poster

Thanks for the heat guys & girls!! Glad I could help

Any ideas on if these are genuine? Not sure how to tell.

Ordered the white one. When I was buying a controller a few months back, the cheapest I found anywhere was £29.99 so this is a really hot deal. Nice to have the choice of colours as well.

I remember the last time this deal was posted, the description said "does not come in original packaging" back then.
It was suggested that these controls were not official sony ones but fakes.
Anyone considering this might want to find the old deal see if anyone bought one and give them a PM. I wouldnt want to waste £25 on a fake one.

I bought the white one and have my doubts after opening it and looking at it. The LED lights do not sit as flush as an original and the square which is printed on the button seems to be ever so slightly off. But it works and syncs so am not too sure.

Anyone else got any thoughts on theirs?

What was the packaging like? Did it come in a normal Sony dualshock box?

I picked mine up yesterday from the post office (wasn't in for the delivery), but havn't had a chance to try it out yet. I ordered the red one. It looks official, It's called 'Deep Red' and is darker in colour than a previous red controller I own (I like red :|).

The packaging is cardboard, like when you order from play-asia, rather than the completely enclosed in plastic ones you usually buy in the shops here in the uk....

Everything look official - how would I tell if it was a fake - apart from it not working properly?

go here amazon.co.uk/Son…ler
Look at the user submitted photos and read the notes.
The fact that they come in a cardboard box instead of original packaging should set off the alarm bells.
