We know that the hype for next-generation consoles is strong and this has been badly combined with the shortage of both PS5 and Xbox Series X. Either because of the few units that are put on pre-sale or because of the presence of resellers and their tools, getting a console or accessory is complicated and this has led some to search for offers or publications that meet their need. Sadly, a PlayStation fan saw that this is not a good idea.
The DualSense this player bought was an Xbox One controller
As shared by ComicBook, a reddit user made public the scam he was subjected to on eBay when he bought a DualSense, the PS5 controller that has attracted attention for its haptic controls. According to the information, this player decided to enter the publications of the online platform, contacting a third party that sold him the DualSense. The operation was closed, the payment was made and the fan waited for his package to arrive, however, the surprise was not pleasant when he opened it.
As you can see, the only thing that the DualSense package had was the box, because inside there was an Xbox One controller painted to look like a PS5 control. Based on the information, the user obviously asked for a refund, but the seller likely got away with it.
Since November of last year, eBay has alerted its users to pay attention to all kinds of third-party publications that offer the new Sony and Microsoft consoles, as well as their accessories, as the number of fraud attempts increased due to the great demand that there were for these products.
