I hope you did not order the red one where it says Newer Item....as that Item is a Refurb....It never said it was A REFURB BEFORE. I have been calling Amazon CS for weeks to let them know there is no such thing as a Newer version of a red controller....Now instead of fixing that link and removing it they leave it there and if you click on it it takes you to a refurb that costs more than a new controller. LOL CRAZY....

The same thing is happening to the Silver one if you look at its listing. Amazon.com needs to get ahold of the fake controller problem they have!

Amazon does not seem to do anything about this I have talked to the, several times on the phone. Sad actually....since their customer service people try so hard.

I have also reported this to Amazon.com and they have never done a thing to correct it! More need to complain or they will never do anything.

I know....its a shame. I have reported Amazon to the Better Business Bureau as well because their promo of Grand Turismo 5 XL game offers a free PSN game....and I never received it. Amazon marketing or whoever handles this sort of thing needs to be evaluated.
Im with you, more need to sound off and complain about these sort of things.
Sony does not have any controllers that are So called newer versions. I personally have spoke to Sony PlayStation managers about this and they have seen Amazons website on both this controller and the Gran Turismo Bonus offer and they have told me that Something is very wrong with Amazons info. Maybe a law suite would get this properly taken care of. Know any good class action attorneys?

Your welcome Parental Rights....Amazon may be a big Company but that doesn't give them the right to put anything they want on their web site that would steer a customer with false information. I just got done speaking to Sony Corp and the Better Business Bureau today as a matter of fact in regards to another false bit of advertising that I was caught up in....The Gran Tursimo 5 XL game offering a free PSN game as a Bonus and Amazon not fulfilling that offer. I have been a long term customer of Amazon and have tried to do my best to help them realize their errors....However they do not fix these issues. I appreciate your feed back and am truly glad to help. We all need to help each other on matters such as this. Thank you.
