I'm guessing the analog sticks or the buttons might be in worse condition than the others.


All right. The one I picked up is very good condition. Hope it will be fine.

Actually, for the controller, what is the meaning of like new and very good? I think they can not check the battery life inside. How do they define the condition? To see whether the button is loosed or not?

More so based on the packaging (dings, bend, crease, etc). Anything from very good to like new is a close to a safe bet (some rare instances it hasn't been). Amazon grades items from acceptable, good, very good, to like new and are usually pretty accurate if not exaggerating when describing some of the "flaws". For more here is the quote from OP:

"Usually, games are re-shrinked wrap and almost in perfect condition. Any game i have personally ever bought has in like new condition. However, some people have reported that games were scratched with stickers on the insert. Consoles are also usually reported in like new or new condition with box damage. Rarely, a console may be missing a key component such as a power brick. Games listed in "acceptable" condition likely have very beaten up cases, or are missing cases, and are in not so great condition, but generally have a working game disc."

Thank you for your detailed explanation. In my opinion, I do care so much on package for controllers. The most important is whether the buttons do not loose and all keys a workable. For battery life, I think it is gambling.

Actually, I seldom buy good on AWD because I always miss it. Hopefully my games in good condition looks good. Hope they do not replace a blu ray case to store the disc and damage the cover art...

Why the hell is Left 4 Dead 2 so expensive still? It came out in Nov 09.
Did they make a limited amount or something?

Best scenario, it is flawless. Good scenario, it is dinged due to packaging being bent out of shape but works fine. Worse case scenario it does not work properly then you return it to Amazon and stakeout for another one.

I can tell you this much that I got one couple of months ago listed in acceptable condition and when I got it the only thing flawed about it was the packaging (the box was torn at the ends and the plastic clamshell was bit bent out of shape). However, the controller was brand new. I am still using it to this day. Only one way to find out if it is worth your money and that is inspect it first hand and use it. Good luck!

I am guessing you meant Scribblenauts Unlimited (if so nice catch) and not this:

Yeah, Unlimited. Buy Two Get One, but I tend to look at that as each game being 1/3 of the total paid. That way, say, I can look at the other one I'm "paying" for without going 'oh god why did I spend that much for that game."

All right. After hearing your words, I have changed my mind. The most important is the controller itself, but not the packaging. Anyways, thank again, DealSeeker2U. By the way, how do you know that your controller is brand new?

I calculate those deals the same way to truly see if it is a "deal" (I am a CAG after all ;)). Nothing is really "free" and I say for newly released game that's a good price.

For one the clamshell packaging was still intact and sealed (not Amazon sealed). Secondly, it just had that "new" smell and feel to it. The analog nubs were still raised and not worn. The seal / serial # was not worn. Their were no scruffs, smudges, or dirt on the controller in places where you can see when they have been used (crevices in the seams, analog nubs, triggers / shoulder buttons, face buttons, etc). You can just tell when something is new, obvious one being it was still clam shut sealed.
