    It doesn't come anywhere near looking like a legit PS3 Controller.

    P3? Seems legit. Is it possible that someone bought a real controller, swapped it for a fake one, and returned the controller in the real ps3 box?

    That's what I'm thinking.

    The associate working the electronics department thinks it's either:

    A) Somebody bought one, switched them out, then returned it

    B) He noticed the tape sealing the top lid on the box was cut, so it's possible someone could have switched them out right on the spot. How they would have managed that without getting caught is beyond me.

    C) Extremely unlikely, however still possible is that it was actually manufactured like that. Occasionally, weird things happen in production. I once bought a brand new N64 controller that was completely missing the trigger button (Z button I think).

    I actually ordered a controller since I wanted an orange one, and needed a new one since mine are worn and somewhat broken. It is the same as that one in the picture. It's a third party controller, not the real ps3 controller, they are crap

    Those controllers suck so bad.
    The sticks are all stiff and not smooth at all.
    The triggers feel funny too.
    Besides all that stiff feeling, it works perfectly.


    -don't ask.
    It's just a flesh wound.

    I bought a PS3 remote of eBay at one time, showed the legit picture & everything but I actually got that same one w/ that "P3" logo & let me tell you it was complete fake, all a rip off. (I thought) It did not have anything that would be copyright on it which is why that is not the real logo nor did it have all that writing on the backside at the time. It also never charged correctly with a USB & the analog sticks where so tough feeling.

    Now WHY does Target have em is the question & why is that a real Sony box..

    I am not sure what is more more wrong with that picture, the fake PS3 controller in an official box or the price next to it.

    Here is the UK PS3 controller retail packaged.


    It has that annoying 'fight to get it open' packaging.

    Maybe it means it's made for "Player 3".

    I bought one of those Dualshocks two weeks ago, at first I thought I was being scammed because it didn't include the USB cable but then I realized none of the controllers did. It turned out to be legit. (It had the PS logo, not P3)

    not anymore, they've finally changed the packaging, i bought an official one from gameplay.com a couple of months ago and it was finally in a cardboard box that just opened like any other product, a thousand times better
