Slight correction. It isn't exactly an Asian ripoff, it is an actual Microsoft brand faceplate that was given out as a pre-order bonus or something of that nature. Also it is a green half circle not an orange one. Sorry I don't mean to be picky I just thought I would throw that out there.


I have a question for you MaDDigital. The faceplates that come with skins, did you buy the entire set or did you manage to find them by themselves? I really would like to have the Assassins Creed and Mass Effect ones but I do not want the skins. I do not like skins on consoles. All I want are the faceplates but I really don't want to have to pay $30+ just because they come with skins.

So, the following PGR3 Faceplate is an Asian knock-off. Am I right?

Yes that is the pre-order one. The PGR faceplate that is part of the 700 series does not have that little green half circle at the upper right of the package. I have also been told that the 700 series ones are carbon fiber on both the front and back where as the pre-order one is white on the back with the little holographic Microsoft sticker on it.

Well I was hoping that the rest of the collection would be posted before I had to go to bed but no such luck :crying: Gives me something to look forward to I guess. Hopefully they will be here waiting for me tomorrow evening. I can't wait to see what else you have :hardcore:

$70 for a preorder? What? You got ripped off dude, the 700 limited batch go for 50-70 alot on ebay.

And its not real carbon fiber, there is a guy that makes them into real carbon fiber though

My PGR is original 700.. It had the promotional note on the bottom and its a real MS faceplate with "patent Pending on the back" its identical to the original and ms faceplates from a build perspecive on the rear... just has differnt build date..

Mine is white on the back with Patent Pending as well, so it looks like a preorder plate. It's made very well so it's pretty obvious to me that it isn't a bootleg.

Comments on your collection:

The GameStop Army plate was available on eBay for $49.99 and I've just now finally seen them in stores for $19.99.

I want your Water Puzzle plate. We need to work something out so I can kill you and take it.

You have the oddest settings on your camera. Everything looks flourescent (yellow wave, pink balloons, etc.)

Yea, this is a quick and dirty photoshoot with my camera phone.. I will take higher rez pics with less per picture to get the detail. (the walls in the room i took the pics are a faded yellow color so with no flash, took that yellowish tint..) THe only two "knockoff" faceplates in the collection is the COD2 and Quake which I got as part of a "lot" purchase off ebay. Seller just added them in so I wasnt going to turn them down.

But it needs to say Not for retail sale. Also needs to have a carbon fiber backround. I cant figure out if your post says that it is sorta confusing.

Hey MaDDigital I sent you a PM please check your inbox. I had a question for you to answer. thanks.

Actually the pre-order one says not for retail sale as well. I really think the only difference between the two are the green circle vs no green circle on the packaging and the fact that one has a white back and the other has a carbon back.

Yup yup.. Mine did have the "Not for Retail" on the bottom with no green tab. I got it a long time ago unopened.. At the time i didnt think there was the one with a green tab or no one was talking about it. It had the offical packaging and side by side to an official Halo or Viva Pinata faceplate, its same build quality, same button hardware and correct build time stamp. Unfortunately no one ever really takes pics of the back of the faceplates.. lol.. anyways.. I hope to have another 10 delivered by next week.

how can you tell the call of duty 1 is fake?

moltenluv
01-08-2008, 01:38 PM
I dunno. I wondered the same thing about that one and the Quake 4 one. I have what is supposed to be a non-knock off version of the Quake 4 one but I am only going off what the seller told me and the fact that it came in the little cardbord box with the black and white sticker on the side of it. I have thought about buying a knock off one and comparing the two but I really don't want to waste money on something I really don't want and may already have. If anybody has a knock off Quake 4 and wants to post close up pics of it I will take some of my supposedly non-knock off one to compare it with.

MaDDigital
01-08-2008, 02:31 PM
I will def take the pics of the Call of duty 2 and Quake 4 faceplates. There is a def quality difference of the plastic and the back is not smooth, the IR window is melted in place and I believe the plastic is thinner than the retail made faceplates. Other than that, the colors and pictures are actually pretty good.. thats why it doesnt bother me.

I really think the only difference between the two are the green circle vs no green circle on the packaging and the fact that one has a white back and the other has a carbon back.I'm sure I own the original one (factory sealed), because I got it from a friend which got it personally. It has no green tab and says "Not for retail sale or distribution" on the lower right. The back is just white and on the front there's a protective film on the IR eye.

Mine also came in the carton boxes and I got it from the local game store here when I bought the games. It must be original and if they come in the plastic blister package, then you must have Asian Knock-offs which are listed on eBay a lot. For the Quake 4 one there's a way to check to see if it's original, because these have a dark green border around the IR eye.

Yeah mine has the green border around the IR eye. Phew! I am safe! I never noticed that difference. Thanks for pointing it out. I compared my faceplate to a pic of a knock-off one on eBay. The knock-off one has a white border around the IR eye instead. Also the 2 little round divets above the USB port door on the knock off are white but on the real one they aren't visible at all. Hope that helps somebody else out :cool:

Ok since nobody else answered your question I will. That faceplate and the blue one next to it come together as a set. They are made by Joytech and there are usually a few listed on eBay at any given time. If you are interested in buying the set let me know and I will find you some auctions :cool: Here is a slightly better pic of the set. They are both sort of a translucent color.

Twenty bucks you can get a chip/battery back that lets you record up to ten seconds of audio, and play it back with the push of a button. Radio Shack.
