Re: Does this thumb stick look right?

Looks like a funny angle to me. Notice how you can see the edge of the left shoulder button, but not the right.

I can see what you mean, it does look misaligned at first glance. I think you’re wise to ask for extra photos.

I very specifically asked about it and asked for pics. I got "I tested it and it works great" and no pics. *sigh*

Almost seems worth buying if it's cheap, and if it's broken, teach the guy the lesson of answer questions accurately and post enough pictures especially when asked an honest not nitpicky question as that.

Hehe.. I've wanted to do that many time since eBay always sides with the buyer. Never quite worth the hassle though :P

THIS.

Concur with a couple other replies each thumb stick just off due to focus of camera at center. I do not see anything wrong; especially if you check to see if the seller has good feedback.

Just ask the seller if any looseness and if okay a straight on shot of each thumb stick. Your inquiry will be part of the sales transaction should there be a dispute.

New WiiUs are like 500 to 1000 CAD. I can't justify spending more than a NIB switch... but i dont want to buy a switch because the New Switch XL is coming soon.

That's where I'm at with this sort of thing.

Used Wii U, PS4, Xbone systems are usually priced just a small amount under what they would be new. And you're at the mercy of whatever chucklefuck was the previous owner.

If you can still get it new, get it new.

On what planet? I've been looking for a week and only found one new under 600 CAD. Used is around 200 CAD. Seriously, if you know where to find one for what its retail price was.. could you buy one for me and send it my way. I'll pay for everything and be your best friend. :)

EDIT: I also got my CiB PS4 for $125 CAD :)
