    One of these are not like the other...



    One of these are retail and the other is a working sample...



    DVT1589 Sample, Not for Sale (was imported here, tested and approved before mass production)



    Retail Label



    Hard to see with pictures, but sample (right) used same silver flaked paint that was used to write "Sony" to paint the Home button while the retail (left) uses a flat grey.



    Front of sample



    Front of retail



    Maybe one day i'll open these up and see what is inside :)

    It was used in conjunction with the PlayStation move in some games or could be used as a remote essentially like the old ps2 remotes just to navigate the menu and watch content.

    Oddly at the time, I didn't have a navi controller but had a move controller. I found this on eBay listed as "Playstation Sample Controller" in new condition :whistling:. Eventually I scooped up the retail navi controller from @Digmac for comparison sakes and purposes.

    And yes Jet, it's a working sample :p
