I have two ps4 controllers which came with my bundle and on both of them, the left analog stick is pealing, one not so bad but one very bad, is anyone else having this problem and does anyone know if Sony or amazon are doing anything to help this situation ?
Yep got this with my bundled controller, after an hour or so it will become slippy so i can't use it properly. Very annoying as they aren't cheap and SONY has come out and said it wear and tear apparently, dunno how this is possible when its happening after only like 20 hours gameplay.
What I don't understand is if there was any chance of the rubber wearing down, even slowly, why not make the top of the sticks replaceable - it would be easy to make them so they unscrewed. I don't believe Sony would want people buying new controllers every few months, it would hurt their reputation.
It seems that every controller that has these issues is a black one, and probably the one's from inside the box. Its probably a bad batch. I've used my red one for at least 80 hours and it looks good as need just as it should. I cant really help with the black one as I traded it in for 38 and got a blue one for 45, perhaps you should do the same. These controllers should be built to last a great deal of time.
