Bought it! DualShock 4 by Sony

NEWER UPDATE:

I received one from eBay, and it appears to be the real thing.

 

NEW UPDATE:

The eBay seller has a recent rash of negative feedback for not sending items paid for.

I do not think I will receive the controller, and have opened a PayPal dispute.

 

UPDATE:

Got one on eBay!

 

 

Now here's a stretch...

(But it doesn't hurt to ask.)

...

Fakes abound, especially with popular electronics. I wouldn’t trust this stuff to eBay unless you KNOW the seller is legit. Davie

The protections of Ebay and PayPal make it less risky to be taken advantage of. I have bought thousands of dollars of stuff on Ebay. Over the course of 15 or so years of course. Only have ever had but a few problems. A few DOA’s and one that never shipped. Those problems were resolved quickly thanks to Ebay and PayPal. Never had anything counterfeit or fake. I think I need to worry more about problems from overseas mega sellers, not mentioning any names, more so than I do Ebay. Scammers and low lifes get run off Ebay fairly quickly. Buyers have a responsibility to do their research before making purchases. We would be fools if we didn’t. Now Craigslist is a different story. Big Smile

The first link is a clear scam (to me).

The second link is for a used controller, and is an auction.

By the way, I look at eBay everyday, so I don't need any eBay links.

 

But thanks for your effort.  :THUMBS-UP:

Well throw your bid out there. You might get lucky. I won a few in the past with a bid I never thought would buy anything. I won a auction on 2 D4’s for $45 shipped early last year.

Newegg I think had them for $39.99 I think. Had to find one for my nephew. Don’t know if they still have them or not.

I'm waiting for a better sale.

After careful consideration, I have decided that I am only interested in Copper.

Do you have a good source you can share or was it just a one off?

There were three available at $28.70, but they're sold out now.

It's coming from England, so I have to wait several weeks.

Other than the wait, it's a good deal.

BTW, I'm looking for Copper the most, but will settle for Midnight Blue.

Oh… bum deal. Sad

Sorry about that, raccoon. I hope everything works out for you. I don’t recall what eBay/PayPal current policy is. But, in the past, I’ve had my order cancelled and money refunded automatically by eBay/PayPal when a scammer’s account was shut down. If this seller has a rash of bad feedback for not shipping items, your money should be quickly returned to you. But still, the guy wasted your time and possibly caused you to miss other good deals that may have popped up while you thought you had one bagged. Angry

Once I get my money back, I'm leaving negative feedback for the first time.

I don't like being jerked around on eBay.

Ebay is getting to be a JOKE these days. To many guys ripping people off. Then you have E bay siding with them sellers.
