Over on the PlayStation Reddit page, a PS5 customer has given a friendly reminder that it’s not a good idea to order a DualSense controller on eBay. While the PS5 is impossible to find, the PS5 DualSense controller is fairly easy to find on Walmart, GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, Target and more. But recently, a Reddit user decided to bypass official retailers and gamble by buying a PS5 DualSense controller on eBay.
As you would expect, this did not work out well for the user. While there are many reputable sellers on eBay, and while the auction site is usually fine to meet your shopping needs, there is a risk involved each time you use it, as Reddit user “crihyde” recently found out.
By taking the US social news aggregation, online content rating and discussion site, the PS5 user revealed that when they recently purchased a PS5 DualSense, they were sent an Xbox Series X controller poorly painted as a DualSense and in the official PS5 controller packaging.
Unfortunately, it is unclear what happened from here, but the user probably asked for a refund. That said, although they do not provide any additional details or follow up, the image above was enough to shoot the post to the top of the PlayStation Reddit page and earn the user some awards.
Since the PS5 was launched in November, retailers have made a serious transfer on eBay. Before the PS5 was even released, pre-orders actually went for $ 800 to $ 1000. And of course, this is not the first PS5 purchase to go wrong. Back in December, when a user ordered the console, they were sent a concrete block.
