Poor Quality Six Axis Controllers
UNITED KINGDOM -- After getting a PS3 last Christmas with one controller I bought another in order to play 2 player games. After a couple of months of playing call of duty 4 the analogue sticks stopped responding. Anyone that plays call of duty will probably know what I mean, you have to click in L3 to sprint. After a while the button stops responding or responds erratically (works sometimes then not at all). When this problem occurred I then bought a further two controllers to replace the defective ones. Sure enough the same problem arose with the replacement controllers. I would like to make clear that these are the official ps3 controllers from Sony! I now have 4 broken controllers and cannot play games that require analogue controls. The problem even affects games not requiring analogue use because sometimes the analogue stick is stuck in position (i.e. making your player run out for a throw in when playing Pro Evo of Fifa). To play games normally I now have to purchase new controllers again!!!
I am unsure of the details regarding warranty of Ps3 accessories but surely Sony cannot be allowed to sell controllers that break easily during regular gameplay. I tried to e-mail Sony directly to inform them but could not obtain an address after a considerable amount of time spent searching all of their sub categories on the website. I am writing this review to inform Sony that their PS3 six axis controllers are poorly made and I do not appreciate being ripped off. I paid the money in the first place for a product that works, I do not expect to have to replace it three times within the first year.
For people who have experienced this problem write a review and let it be known that Sony Playstation do not provide value for money.
