Fake PS4 Controller! ► How to tell you bought a wonky PlayStation 4 DualShock – [Titanium Blue]

I bought a PS4 controller online because of a sale and it felt weird. So I went to a physical store and bought it again at full price to compare and then all the details and mistakes became obvious. I had bought a fake PlayStation 4 DualShock controller. I hope this video helps you spot a fake too.

    What can we do to the fake controller

  2. Miichi5 on April 4, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    3:22 sus?

    Haha I got a rose gold pink controller, and thought it was fake right of the bat because it didn’t have the logo on the home button, just assuming it got worn off because the controller was only $50 AUD, normal price of preowned so I wasn’t to bothered… I ended up complaing the light to a real controller… thats when I realised the light had a more purple hue.. and not only that but the controller light had a faint flash to it haha..

    I was deffinetly skeptical by now so I looked this video..
    Now I checked out the stick AND WHEN I TELL YOU! Hahaha it doesn’t even have sony on it

    I’m not even mad tho!! It’s so pretty and I love it, everything else apart from the light and sticker is perfect! I use it on my chrombook anyways because the boyfriend plays the PS.. so honestly $50 well spent imo

    22logictec on Instagram is a savior to me at this point he help me recover my hacked account and also teach me how to secure it from hackers

  5. Napz2kleen on April 4, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Tbh if it looks the same and works the same best believe am buyin another one😂😿

  6. Arvengus on April 4, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    As far as i can see, the controller i bought yesterday seems legit. Everything u would see in a real cointroller is on it. The only thing thats off is "ComputerEntertainment". Its ok right?

  7. Dave Dela Cruz on April 4, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    My controller is 1 second delay

  8. Jonathan Lajoie on April 4, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    best video about fake ps4 controller thank you

  9. Nick Forest on April 4, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Do they really put fake ones in a real package i dont think sony would do this

  10. KING_ glokkz blangin on April 4, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Or just buy one from GameStop, bestbuy, target.

  11. Is R.A.E.L on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I hate how the new Ds4s have those rough analog sticks

  12. Webster Kamoro on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Just bought one last week… Glad it’s genuine

  13. Evron 99 on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I want to see between real controller box and fake one

  14. Marbylyn Quilala on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Great.i felt the same way then.
    Oem controllers are affordable but far beyond expectations.fake controllers drains fast,mostly 4hrs using it,charge.
    Tnx for sharing.

  15. Kenpachi on April 4, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Thank you for the good video, but do you know where should i buy dualshock 4 controller (i’m in the uk btw)

  16. xotig on April 4, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Yea.. I thought something was about about the new controller I got

  17. Khode Matin Arzhang on April 4, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    You actually helped me

  18. u263a on April 4, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    China! Land of the fakes

  19. Dusan.k on April 4, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    All buttons are perfect on my controller, everything is fine but one thing. Mine has no sticker. Soo…. What is it

  20. Claudiu Turcu on April 4, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    content is very interesting and seems informative but the camera focus is so off and anoying that I HAD to shut down the video…sry mate….next time when you try to focus something and it’s not working pls don’t upload it or make a better version of it if you really want to focus that way

  21. Flying Squirrel Tribe on April 4, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    I read somewhere that China is flooding the U.K. and U.S. with counterfeit goods. The scariest thing I saw they sold was a fake Rolex watch worth $50,000.00 made of gold! In reality because of the gold the fake Rolex was worth maybe $2,000.00.

  22. Jefferson Koster on April 4, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    My purple feel different wouldn’t turn as well

  23. Andy Cash on April 4, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    The sony logo above the light at the back is different colour also, I’ve purchased a fake controller a camouflage one & it looks awesome but it is completely fake & doesn’t operate as it should.
    Also things to check is the charging cable supplied with the controller it’s too short in length & too thin in diameter, The cable looks like what I got supplied with my smok e-cigarette.
    You can also tell by the box it comes supplied in the blue colour isnt right & the writing on the back looks slightly smeared indicating a complete photocopy of the real thing & look at the actual height of the analog sticks they arent the correct height & lastly the battery dies in about just over an hour on a fake controller & that’s even when it’s been fully charged.

  24. BanDaruMa58 Mc on April 4, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    i guess mine is fake then¯_(ツ)_/¯

  25. Khode Matin Arzhang on April 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm


  26. fatony budi on April 4, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Original nor fake,honestly i dont care.now the million dollar question is,if the two compared on its durability,which one last longer?im looking for serious answer here

  27. Иво Василев on April 4, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    I, both fake one from China for 5 times cheaper, and the controller is lighter very cheap plastic. I fixed mine analog when disassembled the joystick and bent the pins of the analogs. It is working perfect ever since.

  28. Mythical Entity on April 4, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    I’m trying to find a nice deal on a new dualshock 4 since next gen is here, but ebay and amazon are riddled with some fake controllers. (Since they’re out of stock on amazon at the moment.)

    Maybe ill just go to a store in person and eat up the full price. Thanks for the informative video! 😀

  29. Douglas Duchak on April 5, 2021 at 12:01 am

    the main difference I saw was on the genuine one it literally says Sony on the top of the controller the fake one does not have the word Sony at all

  30. Tzuyu Codm on April 5, 2021 at 12:02 am

    I just bought one today. Too bad it’s a fake controller :'(

  31. Panamaniacs 2011 on April 5, 2021 at 12:02 am

    7:25 its called dead zone , pretty much fake controllers dead zone is too big making impossible to aim in fps games

  32. Andrea Woodvine on April 5, 2021 at 12:03 am

    I got one of these fake controllers from Amazon for €18, and one of the things that gave it away for me was that the battery inside is a generic 600mAh battery in heatshrink, but all the buttons and everything else feels just like the real one, it responds perfectly ingame, and even the sticker on the back has everything correct that you show in the video. The circuitboard even has quality soldering, all the parts correspond, even that horrible silkskin Sony love to use, the box looked original with all the proper lettering and branding on it… I’m kind of wondering if maybe mine is actually a reconditioned factory defect. But I’m not complaining, I’m happy with it, because I bought it to replace the original on which the sticks have terrible drift issues with less than 50 hours of use. So I prefer thoe one I got than getting a real one for more than 3 times the price if it’s only going to last me about 50 hours. I have some new sticks ordered for my original, but they are taking so long to arrive… And besides, the original is boring black, whilst my real fake is a very nice looking rose gold.

  33. GamerZakh on April 5, 2021 at 12:03 am

    The fake controller does say SONY above the light btw, I talk about it in the video. It was ‘on sale’ for half price online. Now I can see why. I even returned it saying it was broken and this is the *better* one they sent me.

  34. the red hood on April 5, 2021 at 12:04 am

    I believe that I purchased a fake one that’s y I’m here 😂 I didn’t know that it had fake and original. I noticed just by the way it felt in my hand.. well what can I say once it’s working and I can use it. It’s ok with me

  35. Carlitos Way on April 5, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Zak, can you point out from the look of it there are 3 different boxes for the PS4 Dualshock 4 controller. Which one is real? I’ve pinpointed that the one that says "DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller for PS4" is the real one. The box is blue on top & bottom. The box that’s white on top appears to be fake or generic. The other box is blue on top & bottom front says "DOUBLESHOCK 4 Wireless Controller" generic. In the near future can you do a video on how to pick out a fake box before buying.

  36. azucii on April 5, 2021 at 12:08 am

    i have a fake one but it feels exactly like the original except the sony computer entertainment. mine is said sony computer entertainment not sony interactive
    overall everything feels nice, the analog is very smooth, the button feels nice.

  37. hackabusi on April 5, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Had a few fake controllers in the past for the PS3 and PS4. Can tell the general build quality isn’t up to scratch compared to the genuine ones. Mainly the buttons feel too clicky, not spongy enough and the analogue sticks are pretty stiff.

    Also they always end up losing the ability to sync so end up with bricked/dead controllers .. the latest being a berry blue one..

  38. Josh Smith on April 5, 2021 at 12:09 am

    I almost got conned into a fake one on Facebook market place, price was a little less than they normally are in store so I was instantly suspicious. Best thing to do is just buy from a trusted retailer. Its worth spending the money

  39. KingTairun on April 5, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Total BS printing a sticker is the easiest thing to replicate ever!

  41. braincell bandit on April 5, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Why does it matter though

  42. Lucidistic on April 5, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Can the fake one enable bluetooth?

  43. Lactic on April 5, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Can anyone tell me which is the best place to buy PS4 controllers

  44. Luis Cifuentes on April 5, 2021 at 12:18 am

    It’s important to notice that the fake one didn’t say "SONY" above the light bar. That’s an easy one to spot.

  45. Ricardo Nortadas on April 5, 2021 at 12:18 am

    I bought one that has an oficial logo and the analog sticks doesnt have any resistance. Its like the controller was very used. It was in promotion. Never again buying one with discount or promotion.

  46. Samurai Gabe on April 5, 2021 at 12:19 am

    All I have To Say Is Dont Buy Anything From Asia.

  47. Random Guy on April 5, 2021 at 12:21 am

    I feel like I’m famous because you replied to my comment

  48. F•B•I on April 5, 2021 at 12:22 am
