PS4 analog sticks are garbage

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4 analog sticks are garbage

That's pretty messed up considering the controller wasn't yours and you basically just damaged someone else's property...

Is this thread serious? You think that the DS4 sticks start to erode after 1 minute of play?

So in my xbox controller review thread i'm a sony fan and in this thread i'm a xbot, gotta love that logic. Maybe i'm a consumer who doesn't like untested merchandise. Already had to deal with the PS3 when that came out and how unrealible it was.


Don't know what to tell you.  I've aggressively used the joysticks to play multiple games for about 10-15 hours.  Not a single issue.   My only problem is their stiffness which is a stark contrast from all previous Sony consoles.  In terms of quality -- it's been fine.  Both the one included with the console (And the 2nd one bought from a different location off the shelf).

To me,  you come across like a fanboy (Regardless of what you own).   What PS3 (Unreliability issues did you experience?)

If most are not having an issue then that is a good sign, maybe it is just an issue with a certain batch of units. But i think as more time goes by most of these deffective analog sticks will come to light.

I had 5 60gb units die on me, over heating, blu-ray drive, motherboard, yellow light of death and some total system failure, i still have that fat system sitting in a box.  No issues with my slim though.

The product is meant to be tested for people looking into buying the system.   If the product falls apart within 1min of testing then its a garbage product.  If i'm testing a car and take a sharp turn and the wheel falls off.  I guess you would blame me aswell and not the company for failing to make a product where the wheel stays on the car.

The fact that you don't see an issue with what you did is just mind boggling. Cars are made to make sharp turns. What they are not made to do is make sharp turns going over 10 or 15 miles per hour... what did you do? You took a sharp turn going 40 mph

Do you keep forgetting you yourself "RUBBED" the sticks for a minute straight?   I've played with mine for 10 or more hours and I have not once rubbed them for a minute just because.  And mine are perfectly fine as well.  Can give you pics if you don't believe me. Which you probably don't because I don't believe for a second that you actually did this until you have proof. And since it so happened to conveniently be a "store display" you probably won't be able to get pics anyways.  Perfect cover story!



...is this why so many controllers at console kiosks are wrecked?

Seriously man, people use these things, and they don't exactly get replaced quickly, if at all. If you need to do a durability test, spend $60 and wreck your own controller.

Anyway, I've been using the controller like a regular person, and it's fine.



wow... sounds like PS4 will be doom just because of this...



This guy is just messing with you guys. Just check his profile and the threads/posts he's made over the thread. He seems to be making a lot of threads about PS/Xbox games/accesories and stuff and going on about how they're now good or how they dissapointed him.



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

Haha the guy just wanted to play like Shuhei Yoshida..... who knew playing with gloves wasn't a good idea!!!
