Hi everyone, I was on eBay and saw this strangely colored controller. Being curious I bought it and I am wondering what it is or what happened to it.
What's really interesting is the the cord piece seems to be atomic purple or smoke gray on the bottom.
Maybe it's an atomic purple controller gone bad?

Thanks to everyone who replied so quickly! :D I too think it is a sun faded atomic purple, but after looking at it more today it might be smoke gray, who knows.

Anyway, the controller is completely the same amber color all-throughout (except the cord piece) which makes me think its not sun faded. Has anybody ever seen this happen to the 64 controllers before? (If so, do you know the plastic it's made of?) I've never seen it before.

I've included a picture with better lighting so you more easily see the controller, and the picture on top has the sun faded controller on the left and my atomic one on the right.

(Sorry my last picture had really bad lighting!)

@bluedogrulez, no it's the same amber color throughout.

Oh I see! I think it's a cool little thing to add, I made it my designated controller to use!

Is $37 USD a good deal for a Daiei Hawks controller?
