No worries at all bud
I don’t need it but I really want it
This is now back in stock. Just got myself one as I missed out yesterday!
Ordered as the left analog stick stopped working properly
Good deal but not great looking. We really are spoiled on Xbox
ALL and I mean ALL the PS4 controllers are cheap garbage. I've got through so many of them it's unreal - they don't last months let alone years. All my old Playstation controllers used to be indestructible. Every single brand new PS4 controller I've had has developed faults within a few weeks/months of use. All have had analogue sticks that have failed - random movements on screen, when you don't touch them/when centred. Often skewed in one direction when you don't touch them. On two of them half the X buttons wore away just from normal use - never seen anything like it - the actual plastic wore down and it was like half the size of the other buttons. All the controllers have had cheap plastic poor build quality where you could twist them in your hand and they would move, twist and creak loudly like mad. The serial number sticker wore away and came off on ALL of them within a few weeks of use - on some the writing totally vanished within 2 days of use (absolute garbage). The special edition GT controller which I bought - that was the worst and most expensive out of all of them - that had all of the problems above and even worse the silver coating wore away around all the buttons and it was solid dark yellow underneath.

Every time I've had a problem Sony have REFUSED to sort them out for whatever reason. Shocking customer services - the controllers are not fit for purpose. I also had 1 brand new controller that didn't even work out of the box and couldn't connect to my PS4 - resetting it etc. couldn't fix it and that to be returned. They don't make controllers like they used to - that's for sure. All my old PS1/PS2/PS3 controllers still look like new and still work perfectly. They are built like a rock in comparison to the Dualshock 4 V2.

Looks like issues with your keyboard too.

No problems with my DS4s. I thought the DS3s were weak compared to all the others though.

Bought my PS4 in 2014 with 2 controllers. Not had any problems whatsoever and both are still going strong. Some battery depletion obviously and I’ve had thumb grips since new.

It's always the left stick... I've never had the right one fail or develop any faults ever. Every left stick has failed on every Dualshock V2 controller I've ever had. The people who haven't had issues are probably extremely light players. I used to play a lot of Overwatch but stopped playing cos the controllers just couldn't handle it - that game killed more of my controllers than any other game.

Often, stick drift is caused by debris/dust that’s gotten in there. Never happened to mine but there’s plenty of easy fixes if that’s what’s causing it. But overall, I’d say it sounds like mostly (barring the one unlucky purchase that didn’t work out the box) you’re being overly rough with them. I mean, why would you start twisting them? And seriously, x buttons worn half way? This isn’t a common fault... also, I’m pretty sure I’d have used mine as much, if not much much more, in 5 years - than you could possibly use yours in a few months/days.

Literally had the same two controllers for about 5 years still working perfectly bud. Maybe be a bit more aware of the way you handle them or something

Good luck in the future, hope they last

Sounds like you’re pushing too hard on the sticks and the buttons. Maybe it’s a certain game you play

Sony tried to fob me off with this (they are fully aware of the design flaw and deal with these problems every day) - they told me to try using compressed air etc. NOTHING worked. There was certainly no easy fix lol. In the end as they refused to fix it, I took it apart to have a look and saw for myself that there was no dirt or anything inside - I'm telling you these controllers are made on the cheap and are not fit for purpose. I love my PS4 and have always been a huge Playstation fan from the start - it's the only reason I've stuck with Sony and bought controller after controller and taken this BS. The same thing happened with the Sony PS4 Surround Headsets - those were absolute garbage too and they kept failing aswell. I replaced those so many times that I lost count and then abandoned ship and bought £300 bluetooth headphones and haven't looked back. They are definitely cheaping out on their hardware to maximise profits and it's very sad - there are some things they shouldn't be cheaping out on. Personally, I would be happy paying extra and having a decent high spec controller - what makes me angry is that if you buy the really expensive limited edition Sony controllers they are still the same cheap bargain basement build quality and it's all for show with different colour plastics - same garbage hardware inside. In the case of the GT Controller, the plastic used is WORSE than the standard controller lol. Initially when this happened to me, I thought I was unlucky, but then when it kept happening to every controller (even with light careful use) it became clear this is a much bigger problem. After I dealt with their CS so many times (who knew full well about all these issues and couldn't care less), it became clear this is very common. Researching it I found this issue is a huge well known problem and Sony basically don't care because usually it happens straight after the 1 year warranty period ends and they just tell you to go jump and buy another controller.

I do push the buttons quickly / hard when I play Overwatch, but you have to when you play at a high level - I don't do anything abnormal and am actually very careful with my controllers, especially after the first couple died on me. The controllers should be able to handle people just using them to play games. These problems have only affected me with the PS4 controllers - there is definitely a noticeable drop in quality compared to their previous controllers. I would love to hear from people who've had similar problems - there is no way these issues are just affecting me.

Maybe you have just been unlucky I had two from release day, they lasted through 5 years of mainly GTA5 (pretty much everyday), eventually it was the X buttons that stopped springing back after tapping them for five years to sprint in GTA5 (buttons not worn down at all).
I then bought a fake which had a mind of its own.
I then chanced on a cheap damaged box controller but that DID drift but I put that down to someone possibly standing on the box and straining the analog stick.
My current new legit one is still going strong, with no issues after 6 months.

I wonder what the DS5 will be like, I loved the DS3’s but they feel tiny when I pick them up now.
I read somewhere that a quick blast of WD40 down the side of the analog stick whilst the controller is powered off.
Didn’t work on my ‘damaged box’ controller though(annoyed)
*might work*(cheeky)

Have you tried turning the sensitivity up? I play most games with the sensitivity close to max so I barely have to move the sticks at all, still have the original controllers that came with my og PS4 and PS4 PRO I play 'semi' professionally and haven’t had any issues at all...

Quickly and hard are completely separate things. The former might be necessary sometimes (though not really a huge deal on overwatch), the latter never is. The controllers never require hard inputs so it sounds like you're overdoing it

me too, the left stick was going on the original that came with the ps4, so traded it in at GAME and bought a new red one. within a year that was going so returned it to Game who honoured the 1 yr guarantee and gave me a new one but said that the guarantee on it will only last for the 1month time remaining time left from the 1st one, even though this is a brand new one. They offered extended warranty for 1 more year which i didnt bother to buy.
I also bought a blue one from AO last time they had this offer within a year again the left analog stick was going so i returned that to Sony instead of AO, who gave me a replacement but only with a warranty of 3 months, its been 6 months and now that is again also going faulty and again its the left analog. i think my son plays too much fortnite and this stick is the one that is used most , but still you would think that these things are built to withstand that.
