D'oh. Forgot cash back. Thanks OP!
#2
ordered a red one for the mrs! heat added

Good spot, Amazon finally fulfilled my order from March so looks like the start of a proper stock replenish. Just hope this lasts longer than my black one did, 20 hours of use before the thumbstick had ripped.
#4
I got two perfectly good black controllers (due to using thumbstick covers from the start!) but really want a blue one!
#5
HOT for the price and availability
#6
Ordered a blue one for this mrs, time for Rayman!

the hell were you doing with it? I've put in a lot of hours since launch and my sticks look good as new.

I've gone through 3 pads with the DS sticks wearing down. Damn FIFA!

I have swapped out the sticks on both my pads with metal ones I got from eBay. Sorted! X)

It's a well documented known issue, I've only got a PS3 so it's literally about 20 hours on FIFA if that. Sony admitted the same when I called up, however hopefully I'll never have to go through that nightmare process with them again.

The rubber on the side of the stick tears and starts to separate, or other people are finding the surface of the analogue stick itself is torn.

yikes, that's messed up. I guess they use different kinds of rubber cause mine is rock solid. not a mark on it

No one on the net seems to know, some places say that pads beginning with 1 are the better batch, others say 2. All that I know is that I returned one from Gamestop starting with a 1 to Sony, had a 2 in return, and then just last week my red coloured one from Amazon arrived, serial starts with a 1 (and that has to be brand new stock as they've been unavailable for months). Kind of blows that theory out of the water! :)

I suspect it's to do with where the rubber joins, and also the sticks being a bit smaller than an X360 means on FIFA (and perhaps some other games) you do spend quite a bit of time with your thumb on the side of the stick rather than the surface which won't help.

I swapped my DS4 sticks out for Xbox One sticks and it's better than ever, they're much more durable than the stock ones.

These are great. One of the best controllers I own.

The ds4 already feels like a 3rd party product. The triggers are rotten and squeak. I thought they would really have solved the bad triggers from ds3 with this attempt but they are only a little bit better and still not right.


I wish Sony would just make 2 versions of their controller. The existing thumbstick style for those that like the DS sytle and prefer it and a 360 style position .

sony aint stupid, their console is lower in price but the pads and subscriptions are always higher in price than microsofts offering.

Thank you, just ordered a magma :)

If it was not for the lights on the back of the controllers, I would invest in different colours. Black will always be the best I think.

You mean the light bar? You can dim it now if that helps.

We should have been allowed to turn it on/off instead of having to obey the moron known as Shuhei Yoshida.

Jusr ordered myself the red one - black one is going back under warranty for similar thumb stick issues.

Yeah. I do like the light bar for things like Destiny where the light changes yellow if your character is fully charged to use the special attack.

The white one may be another option, but I picked up the gamers pack and am not after a 3rd controller

If your thumb stick is wearing just contact Sony and they'll replace the controller for you. I got mine in June, and the thumb stick is fine and of a harder rubber than my friends launch ones.

Yeah, but only after a 10-14 day wait, and a 30 minute queue on the phone.

020 3538 2665

Opening Hours:
10:30 to 19:00 Monday to Saturday

Be prepared for a half hour queue, and don't call within half an hour of closing because their systems apparently lock them out on the dot at 7, and they can't help and won't arrange a call back. Shower of c-units.

Dunno, took me three attempts in the end and their communication is shocking. I bought my black one from Gamestop but the red one's from amazon, if I get any issues with it it'll go straight back to Amazon.

Simple call sony playstation support on 020 3538 2665 they already know about the fault.

There sending me labels to return mine for a replacement.

No drama at all with their support however I must mention being on hold for 22 minutes to get through.
