It's probably fake. They're using official shots, though, looks like, but given where it's coming from I wouldn't chance it. Some of the fake ones have shots of the actual controller they ship you - they either have no WiiU text on top or just look wrong (poor finish on the plastic, buttons that don't quite line up, etc).

I bought a pro controller from ebay and very happy with it. The USB cable should have Nintendo logos on it or else it's fake.

pay with paypal like the seller recommends. If its fake then u just claim it under a dispute. You can also choose to "pay after delivery" now with paypal to help stop problems like fakes
