  • @koolhass also looking at the pinhole it doesnt appear to have the reset rubber button in it.

  • I don't think they even make those anymore do they? I would assume at this point you could only find refurbished, used, or clones.

  • Yeah compared to other bootlegs i have seen, this one isnt even good. The quality is terrible.

  • Ok, it's what i thought. So now im looking methods to prove that it's a fake , sony telephone support it's a disaster, no help at all. Im sending it to official repair service to serial number check. Any other ideas? How to prove that raspbian command line it's a good source of information. What is thw technical background of it?. Thanks a lot for your support!

  • @koolhass How much did they charge for a new "dualshock" if you are willing to tell?

  • @thedatacereal 45 us dollars more or less

  • @koolhass the label states 5v and has absolutely no ul rating on the sticker. That alone proves its fake. If a mass produced electronic device doesnt have a ul rating its a fake.

  • @koolhass so this shows 5v so this might still be a fake but notice the fcc and ul logos. Yours are missing those and that makes it 100% fake no questions asked.


  • @Koolhass I don't think you're getting anywhere. I'm sorry to say but it's your fault, not sony. If you just want to sue the shop that sold you the gamepad as "genuine" you can, of course, but nothing more. Sony has nothing to do with this, I'm sure they are quite aware of these shitty gamepads.

    If you don't think you can differentiate a legit pad from a fake one bring a friend to the store when you go buy one, to avoid further surprises :)

  • @edmaul69 I recently bought a controller with the same label, but this it is not pairing at all.
    When I connect it, it does not vibrates at all, and only the first light flashes. Thats odd.
    Any idea of how to pair and register this controller?

    I have two shanwan clones and they work fine with the driver.
    I also tried to pair this new one with original drivers, and all of the package but with no luck (actually I bougth 2 controllers and have the same behavior).

    Inside the es_input I notice:
    Playstation(R)3 controoler (an original ps3 controller)
    SHANWAN PS3 GamePad (for the shanwan clone)
    PS3 Controller (for this one)

    Any ideas?
