Thanks for the contribution. This seems to be a Chinese fake model though. None of the board features look neither VX model. No white plastic frame, battery not grey, and SONY logo on the front "seems" to be not aligned, hence the fake model. So many Amazon and Ebay fakes at $20-$30 bearing the SONY registered trademarks, its become a plague. "P2" controllers and fake DS3's are identical, other than the logos. One must be careful and ask for pictures of the exact controller being sold, and if possible board model. If no returns, stay away.
