I was at Best buy today and was able to test out the PS4 they had on display and the analog sticks are garbage is the only way to put it.
After hearing about the PS4 sticks and how they were wearing out very easily i decided to test them out myself. My test consisted of rubbing the analog stick with my thumb/palm for 30 seconds in a circle pattern, after this time all texture on the PS4 stick had been warn off. I decided to test this for another 30 seconds, after this time parts of the rubber were clearly rubbing off. I inspected the controller after the final test to make sure i was not just seeing stuff, but on closer inspection the rubber was looking very rough with flakes clearly falling off. I feel after another 1min of stress testing the analog stick would be useless for continued gaming.
I don't see how Sony could not see this during the making of the controller or system. Are the developers using different controllers in their studies? Did Sony cheap out at the last minute for the analog sticks. How could something like this happen?
