There was micro fuzz that showed up on camera; but the emblem is perfect IMO...
Notice how the light bounces off of the top corners, creating an abstract 3D illusion!!
(in my opinion a TRUE sign of authenticity)

I once said that I refused to believe the probabilities of actually owning one- and i'm glad i did.

Ya like that huh? :)

I'm sure the owner's list will get updated by alxbly when he is around again.
As of right now, the only way i would part with this controller is if it were donated to a meuseum. ;)

Can anybody give a quick opinion if this one is legit?

Just seen on eBay

Ignoring the damage to the logo, it does look like the real deal to me.


Real.
and real emblem damage. :-/
Compared to a few other examples with the same area of damage- seems to be at the weakest point of the emblem.

Right!
Congrats Darklink. You got an e3 at an awesome price.
I try to continue the effort that was put behind the e3 i have.
You can see similar damage patterns with the NP100, and it happens when the person starts picking at it.

Once you remove the residue left behind, it will look even better! :yeah:

Wow guys!
The collected interest shown here says one of two things:

If you ask me, no longer is the e3 met with a bad image. All things considered. I can attest to any prospecting buyer of this controller- it is a wild ride that is worth every bit of it's history!

And two,
Bluedog makes a great point... at the least, there were 4 monitors, which lends itself to the math that Darklink has shown. But, what if there were more "stations" ? It is entirely possible!

Thanks for updating. :yeah:

Right!
I thought that when posting. These controllers were not really meant for the consumer, for what it's worth, they symbolize prestige.
Take the example that has an autograph by Shigeru Miyamoto, somebody would have had to know someone on the "inside" to get that accomplished!

Yeah, that's a tough one. The 'ish' in $1,300-ish can go a long way!

Maybe something with the D-pad...
We should take it easy on the thumbstick. ;)

Being able to buy exact gold foil leaf stickers on ebay now is just impossible to combat the fakes.


This isn't true. They are not exact.
It's unfair to dismiss every e3 controller that comes by, nor is it fair to the current confirmed owners.

Maybe that's also the problem. What kind of message is wanting to buy a fake sending?
I used to sympathize with the idea of people wanting fakes, until Solojones came along.
Just look at his instagram. He basically posts his fakes and repeats what Lithium said above. It's nonsense!
It's because he believes in his fakes so much that he's convinced himself that it is just the same as a real one, and they are not. :lol:
