    Hey all.

    I have seen this controller pretty cheap second hand.

    I am 50-50 on whether its fake or not as it has some weird red squares at the top. But the rest of it looks official.

    Would someone be able to tell me if it is real or fake?

    I am looking for a controller for PC, do not own an xbox one so have nothing to compare it to if i go look at it.

    I take it thats because of the red boxes at the top?

    I have checked a few guides and all the things it says to watch out for are fine

    the red squares are from the camera picking up the IR , i think it was for kinect to see the controller while in your hands or something, not that visible irl, the thing that looks fake to me is the menu and back buttons

    Label inside the battery compartment would tell you if it's genuine or counterfeit.
    If it is a counterfeited one, they surely did their best on it then.

    How cheap is it, and what's the return policy? If it's cheap enough with returns allowed who cares if it's real, just get it and try it out.

    never seen fake xbox1 controller before,there is 3rd parties controller
    but only the official controller are wireless.

    it's legit, it looks the same in the battery compartment as my controller, and i purchased this from gamestop long ago

    EDIT: i'm an idiot, i didn't realize that the two controller pictures were from different people
