spoonman Posted August 4, 2012 Share Posted August 4, 2012 Having wanted a pair of these Atari 7800 digital control pads since I found out about them a few years ago I saw a few pop up on eBay for a decent price and bought 2 of them. I received them today, but they feel extremely cheap! Almost no weight to them, and aside from the silver Atari logo (which is flaking off) there are no codes or other atari markings. I am very familiar with the bootleg NES and SNES control pads that have flooded eBay, but I didn't think anyone would bother with knocking off the Atari 7800 pad. Am I wrong? Could these controllers be bootlegs? Unfortunately I don't have another to compare to, but it really, everything about it screams fake. Hopefully someone can help me figure this out so I can take it up with the seller. This is the auction by the way: eBay Auction -- Item Number: 290753873002 You can see that the cord in the auction looks nothing like the one I received. The seller seems to have a huge supply of these. (He's sold at least 50 of these based on FB) The Warranty sticker also looks brand new/fabricated. I snapped a picture (with my cheap iPod Touch), but you can see how the cable is much different than the one Classic Game Room has shown in his video. The cable is grey and has no Atari symbol on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
