lol, do you have generalized anxiety disorder or something? A lot of sentences with "hope" and "worry." I've been scammed on Amazon Marketplace literally once in 9 years. Some guy claimed he received an empty game case when I sent him a sealed game, and he claimed the shipping seal wasn't broken either. I mean, that guy is literally 1 in thousands, like a serious sociopath to try something like that when it was so obvious and for such a small amount of money. There are definitely more scammers on ebay, but statistically, you're probably not going to run into them unless you're a real serious re-seller. USPS losing first class mail is about the same statistically, i.e. immaterial.

As for the price being driven down, it'll revert back to normal in a week or so unless Amazon permanently lowers the price. But the procedure is pretty simple, you just list and forget. None of this "hoping" and "worrying" in the middle. It's not for a lot of money after all.


Wow, nice dick response. Apparently you don't frequent the AZ seller forums too often. And for the record, your "scammer" may have been legit. It's been known in the past that, while it's rare, sometimes games do get shipped without the discs from the manufacturer. Claiming such doesn't make someone a "sociopath."

For me, no, if I get hit by a scammer, it's no big deal. I'm talking for those that are inexperienced.

I sell and ship thousands of items a month, and I've had my share of scammers and lost mail. Statistically, yes, the odds are low, but I'm speaking from experience that these things do happen quite often than you are obviously aware of.

But for someone that wants to just unload the game to offset the cost, some people don't want to list it and forget it. Sure, the price my go back up, but it may not either. Unless you wish to share your psychic knowledge of the market. :roll:

I was simply providing others with a quick and easy way to offset the cost of the controller.

I plan on keeping the game and controller unless I for some reason really hate the white. I want to trade my old ps3 controllers in and I would really like the gold controller. The Urban Camo one is the best so far because of the matte finish. The gloss finish really sucks.

How can you sell the controller for $35?


eBay. The camo seems to sell much better than the white though. Good luck getting that much for the white.

Case in point, I purchased Star Wars Clone Wars movie on Blu-Ray from a seller on eBay and the case came empty. Another time I purchased a Wii game at Sears and it came empty.

Things must not be selling very well, was just at my BB for something else and they still had a good 15ish copies sitting out on the floor, plus I think a few more mixed in the shelves.

Decided to pass since I just got a new PS3/Controller , plus a White controller would look weird if your console isnt white....

Also had similar experiences @ Kmart and Sears. Both Wii titles were sealed in plastic, too.

I never have understood this. Do people somehow display their controllers and console side by side? My console is in an entainment center and is barely noticeable. The controllers (when not in use) are in a drawer.

Or you can sell it online for twice that much. Is trading stuff in really that much easier than mailing something out?


Yes. Spooge gave a good response, but here's a non- sellers pov.

I've never sold anything online
So I'd have to do the research on policies, tips, ect. Then I'd have to set up an account and list the game. Not knowing much, I'd list it similar to the other listings. But wait, I'm a new seller with no feedback so I'd actually list it a bit lower to entice someone taking a chance on me. All the while I'm out the money until it sells.

Lets say it sold. Now I've gotta figure out shipping. What priority do I ship? Tracking? Hmm, when can I get to the post office - its usually closed by the time I'm off work. Do I leave feedback?

Or I could trade the game in and be done. And I used store credit to buy it anyways.

Just a matter of preference of course.

I don't care what color my controllers are as long as they work. Plus my console isn't visible anyway... but it ain't invisible either. :booty:

Pretty much, just a personal preference for me. All my PS3 controllers are black, my 360 controllers are either Red or Black (Since I have the Gear's console). And my Wii/WiiU controllers are black

Picked one of these up to replace the Sixaxis controller I got from PS3 launch. Traded that in for about 18.xx or so at Gamestop. Was wanting Twisted Metal, which $20 or so for seems like a decent deal for it.

I don't know who's saying that, but it's false. I've bought new dualshocks by themselves, and bundled ones, and even of the same color they're exactly alike and have gotten the same mileage.

I agree with that statement. I also have bundles and individual controller purchases.

Same to me. No different. Not sure where those opinions are coming from. Perhaps there were different batches. Who knows with quality control these days.

So the material of the white controller is smooth like the stock black ones and not like the camo ones? I prefer the camo matted feel.

Newer black controllers have the matte as well. I highly prefer it compared to the old smooth/shiny surface as well.

I'm down for a white controller. I like having different color remotes for party game play.
It's easier to differ who had which controller.

Plus I traded in my Twisted Metal copy and feel like replaying it for some reason

Awesome, thanks for the replies, I'll have to pick this up since my controller is starting to glitch on me (stupid L3 button!!)

That's funny. I prefer the smooth finish on the camo controller over the sticky feel of my 2-year old black one. In fact, I stopped using the black one because it is always sticky no matter what I use to clean it with. But the camo L3 stick broke after only a few month of light use, while my black one is still going stong, so I'm a bit worried about the quality control of these newer controllers

Picked one of these up today. Been wanting Twisted Metal so I could play it with my buddy. Not a big fan of the white controller though, but he wanted another one, so he's buying it off me for $20. Win-win. He gets a heavily discounted new DS3 and I get a new copy of Twisted Metal for $20.

Dual Shocks these days are poorly made, the paint is sanded off on the body of the left analog stick from tilting forward, so are the buttons.

No offense, but I never thought of that as poorly made. I chalked it up to normal wear and tear on that stick.

Isn't that normal for the stick?
