I only have my DS4 for about 3 days and been playing COD ghost since then. I notice my DS4 sticks are begining to wear out. I look online if there are replacement sticks and found a bunch of news on google also stating that the DS4 sticks are wearing out fast. Only 3 days and its begining to wear out, I wounder how its gonna be in a few months or even doubt it will last a year.

 

scroll to post 6 for pics.

Agreed, lets see a picture please Smiley Happy

Had my PS4 since launch and no wear whatsoever.

Maybe it's because I don't play COD, maybe I cut my nails, who knows why my controller shows no wear on it...

Not really sure what you mean by wearing out. But your controller is covered under Sony's 1 Year Warranty. If you need to give Sony a call about getting a replacement.

yeah theses controllers seem like they are going to wear out really quick i play a lot of battlefield and call of duty, and i understand the wear that cod can do your controller from sprinting cause you consantly have to let go of the left stick and rub against to start sprinting again. And for battlefield to spot out enemies you need to tap the r1 button, and since the r1 is not really wide, i find myself constantly pressing the right edge of the r1, which eventually will cause the button to get stuck in the controller. The controller that came with my ps4 had a defective r1 button already so, i wonder how long it will take for my second controller to wear out.

Mine isnt bad. Its just starting to show marks where it make contact with the controller. But images I found online are far worst.

 

These are image I found online, They are not my controller.

Hopefully this doesn't become a big concern. I got a new DS3 in May with a 1 year warranty through best buy. I have never dropped my controller or anything and the right analog seem's to turn my person while im not even pushing the stick. I need to find my receipt so I can exchange it.

Images you found online? Sounds legit. Nobody would damage a controller on purpose just for negative propaganda. I'm certain nobody would shoot a PS4 with a .50 cal just to post it on youtube also......
