    Because it is of better quality, they don’t use cheap plastic and imprecise sticks and weird feeling buttons, and the amount of technology they put in those bad bois damn, did you see the joy cons, f**king HD rumble, a camera, what ?
    You can buy cheap copycats but you’ll not get the same quality.

    First party controllers used to cost only 20€ here in the PS2 era and electronics manufacturing has gotten a LOT cheaper with more advanced production lines and cheaper and more readily available parts as well, it's not a matter of paying for quality, they just mark up the prices just to make more money, actual price of making a controller never rose above 10-15€ at any point, since producers buy parts in bulk, which is dirt cheap! You can literally go online and buy every single electronic part (resistors, capacitors, board, etc.) in a DS4 for only ~8€ here for example... Bootlegs aren't cheaper because they don't work or they use different parts, they are exactly the same circuit inside only with cheaper materials (~3-4€), that's how they are priced even lower. First party controllers nowadays just cost WAY more than they take to manufacture, which is what I objected to in my post, quality is irrelevant to current price.

    (I... really don't know. I'd like to claim that I prefer playing them but comparing the numbers of played and unplayed games in my collection tells me otherwise. :unsure:)
