If the description says "repackaged" anywhere, don't expect the original box. And even then, there's still a decent chance of getting something that doesn't match the description at all. Such is AWD life.
For instance, this wired controller is pretty good for $11 after promo. But I had to do three orders to get one that wasn't heavily used. People do pretty shady stuff with controllers.
I focus more on pc components from AWD and get better results there than with stuff in the v.game category. Earlier today grabbed a 3800XT for $226.
It didn't say repackaged on it, just Like New.
Anyway, I'm trying to pair it to my PS5 now and either I'm dumb and it's different than all the other consoles I've got a 2nd controller with or I can't get it to pair. I've tried disconnecting the controller that came with the system, restarting the console and having the new controller plugged in with the cable my console came with and still nothing yet. Anyone have any ideas why I can't pair it?
Edit: I figured it out, you have to hold the create button and the playstation button on the controller for it to pop up under Bluetooth accessories, then you can register it as a 2nd controller.
Edit 2: The controller works as it should, no stick drift or anything. Everything feels as it should out of the box, I just wish it came with the outer box, just a pet peeve since I like to have everything complete.
