View Full Version : dual shock on ebay scam?
alright hopefully this isn't against the rules, I'm not advertising I'm basically questioning why the hell I can buy dual shock controllers on ebay for around a dollar plus shipping brand new. It's a no name brand, but it doesnt look that bad http://img.inkfrog.com/click_enlarge1.php?image=3abc1m.jpg&username=powergamer88 ... does anybody know wat the problem with these are?

i will give you an advice.. you will probably regret buying those stuff and, besides being cheap it will cost you money.. i will explain
you buy the crappy controllers.. after using them for two days you come to the conclusion that this is not what you want.. you lost two days of gameplay and some money.. plus, you will be pissed off!
and after that you will buy controllers from sony.. more money on the table and you don't want that!
save your time and save your money, buy the official products.. if you don't have the money, wait a bit longer.. this is always my plan and it always work
actually i own one of those, and there just like the real thing, apart from the rumble. Which isnt too bad.
really? I might just buy 2 of them then, do they feel and play the same? or do they feel like, power pads? For some reason the rumble on my ps2 hasn't worked for a long time anyways... it says there's a rumble function though?
I purchased a 32mb expansion card for my ps2 and one of those boot leg controllers came with it as a bonus. It was a good deal cause i got the expansion card and controller for less than some of the other auctions for expansion cards.
I tried out the boot leg controller and for one, the cable is shorter than the Sony dual shock. It's like 3/4 the size of the official which gets annoying. The controller itself is slightly larger than the Sony dual shock and the shoulder buttons take a little more force to press.... Oh yeah it also doesn't have pressure sensitivity. Bottom line, I understand why they were giving them away for free....
It's about as useless as the "Time Machine" from Napoleon Dynamite.
its fine. i had one of those and they worked fine. i never noticed boutthe missing rumble but it might be there. its the same thing.
i mean mine broke but dont worry becuase i broke 3 controller....AND NONE OF THEM WERE MY FAULT! but they work fine.
