Sign up for a free account on flickr or some other free site and post your pictures there, then put a link to it in your post like I did with the amazon post above.

Well, doing a google search on "ps3 controller cechzc2h" shows this is a hong kong model and appearantly they have/had issues with firmware 3.5. i don't know if it has been resolved.

"Complies with IDA standards" means it was probably built in singapore. In the USA it would have to comply with FCC standards.

so is it genuine? and work with my australian ps3?

It looks legitimate since it seems quite a few people have that controller. I don't know if controller works across different regions. Since they are all using bluetooth I would expect them to be the same, but I can't be 100% positive. Sorry. Hopefully someone else can provide an answer.

Interesting. I am sitting here looking at two of them and neither one has a gap, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be a misprint. Okay, I just saw the pic and I can say that there is a lot more information on the label on the back of mine. As to whether or not it would work, the best way to find out would be to plug it in and try it.

What do you mean plug in and try, how will that tell me if its real or fake? i have played GTA 4 with it and it works fine, but as to the fake it will work with games. so how do i tell?

I really don't know in regards to a controller. I can say that I haven't heard of that kind of stuff being counterfeited though. I am assuming when you said you Paid $65, it was Australian Dollars, if so, I haven't done the math, but it would seem rather pricey still though. I bought my second one from Amazon.com for $39.95 USD which would still put it under $50 Australian Dollars I think. Did it come in the original Packaging?
February 27, 2011 9:32:18 PM

Yes came with all original packaging, in australia these controllers of the streets are $95.

I have a random question, how much to Apple Macbook Pro 15inch 2011 model cost of the street? cause they are $2000 here? how much there?
February 28, 2011 12:04:06 PM

If it complies with Australian standards, it should be fine.
February 28, 2011 9:33:54 PM

Ohk, well it works very well on the ps3, the remote.
February 28, 2011 10:06:09 PM

The biggest issue would be that it complied with the Australian standards for radio Frequency Emmision. As long as it doesn't interfere with other devices, then in all likelyhood it is in compliance. That is pretty much the case with all wireless devices.

Yeh right, $150 usd is not for real, it would we more like $1500, in aus it is $2000, please tell me the real price?

Ignore dad, he's a buffoon...

the ones with that number work, but on occasions when you hit R1 it will do R3 instead
