I'm an occasional gamer but have been playing a bit more regularly (trial XBox Live sub) for the last month or so.
Current game of choice is CoD4.
Whilst playing, I've noticed that my wireless controller:
1) Seems to occasionally freeze.
When I have an enemy in my sights and pull the 'trigger' nothing happens and I invariably get killed.
2) Running within the game seems to be a hit and miss affair.
Sometimes it works perfectly but more often than not it is either in short bursts or not at all.
Now, it's quite possible it is my crap gaming skills but my initial thoughts are that the controller is on its way out.
If so, bit of a worry as it's in good condition and hasn't been abused in any way.
Do these controller 'wear-out' over time?
