    Is this a fake PS4 controller?

    Just got this PS4 controller from Flubit via 365games.co.uk. Looks really fake, I mean the box is completely different. Unless is a French (I think) import due to the writing on the box. Either way I'm far from happy.

    Looks good to me. They've probably imported a load from mainland Europe.
    Never seen it say 'For PSTV' before but that could just be a foreign thing?

    I Googled the French packaging, looks the same as this. It could just be the French import as you suggested.

    PS - if it is French, don't be unhappy - it still works in the same way - they've not translated the shapes on the buttons

    Also you can tell by tell feel and weight not to mention the responsiveness of the touchpad

    Only one way to be sure, contact Sony and provide them with the serial number.

    Thanks everyone for the replies. Yes I've Google it as well & it's imported from France. Didn't want to open it as it's a birthday gift next week. Just hope he doesn't think I've bought him a fake one & I'm making excuses oO

    ​Yes same here. Not sure why but I wouldn't click on the pictures if on a mobile. Photobucket ads. Pictures show up fine on a pc.

    Yeah I know what PSTV is, but on controller boxes in the UK it doesn't say that. It just says PS4.
    The French boxed obviously let you know it's for PSTV too.
