Why are they buying a PS5 controller from ebay? They aren't hard to find.

Also did they really get scammed when the Xbox controller is relatively the same price?

So much of this makes little sense.

Well you are scammed when you buy one thing and get another you can't use.
That is the definition of scam.

I still don't understand why 3rd party manufacturers don't make controllers shaped like the others for people who have a preferred platform, but like the other controller.

I would have loved to play my PS4 with an Xbox pad.

You have third party certified controllers like you want but it just the sales are probably very low and so the companies that release them are very few.

For example on PS4 you can try the Nacon Revolution Pro... it will fell similar to XB1 controller.

Yeah buyer beware man, the good news is that seller won't be selling anything on Ebay again if they reported them

There is no scam.
The Xbox custom controller is worth more.
It's just a shit post on Reddit. A lie like everything on social media

if this is true I am sure the seller would have something in the small print. its like when people sell boxes of ps5 and xbox and people think they are buying the console not a box. its just the wording of it

Title needs to change to: Bored Redditor paints his Xbox controller in PS5 DualSense colours then tells anyone who will listen that he got scammed on eBay in the hope someone will notice he exists.
