    I'm searching for this product since it's gotten out of stock, what do you think, is this legit? On Aliexpress they also sell genuine stuff and the price is in line with the actual retail price of the thing (before the discount).

    Looks like a clone. No LED screen? Or does it? Idk.

    I have one, it was £26.99 new, I have recently seen these selling for £55 second hand.

    No, it seems identical to the Sony one, it even has "dualshock(R)" written on the back, and the box looks genuine too.

    EDIT: upon closer inspection, the box of the Aliexpress one is white and blue, while the box I see on ebay are completely blue, it could be just that Sony updated the box's look. I mean, if it was a clone why change it?

    EDIT2: the box of the one listed for €220 on ebay is white and blue too :huh:

    The "new" price it's the same after the conversion. I saw one too for €50, but another for €220 and all the cheap(ish) ones are from the US.

    This is from ebay, from the honest guy that it's selling it for £200, but it's the same as the ones from Aliexpress. As you can see there's something written in Chinese, I think that the Aliexpress ones are just the Chinese version, that's why the box is different (when they do knockoffs usually they clone the American boxart).

    So, I bought one and it arrived today, it seems legit and it works as it should, here's some pictures.

    P.S. I paid it 27 euros: by buying it from aliexpres I saved almost 200 euros ;)
