    I read the article on how to check for authenticity. but from 040363JP how do you assume its fake? cause this means 04/03/2006 Japan, so I would assume its authentic.

    Nope, not if the serial number does not correspond to the date code. Have a look in the serial thread, you will find out the answer soon enough.

    yes, the fake makers got the date code figured out for the past 6-8 months now, not a useful guide anymore.

    I didn't know about part. The serial numbers are still fake anwyays(this one for example) and have not seen legit serial numbers which are really counterfeit. There is still few characteristics which we know which will give them away.
