Rubber wearing off of the analog sticks after just 2 weeks, anybody else having this problem?

Nov 30, 2013

I have 2 PS4 controllers, I've played probably 40 hours between the 2, on one controller the rubber is split on the left analog stick and I can see shavings all over it. Called sony and they said it's normal wear and tear and they won't replace it, seems pretty ridiculous that a $60 controller is only supposed to hold up for a couple weeks. My 360 and PS2 controllers never did this. Only time this happened was with a crappy 3rd party controller and they responded to my email the same day and replaced it with a brand new one.unnamed.jpg

Sony should give us some of these Thumb Socks in cool design. Of course for free like Nintendo did with their Wii Remote wrist straps.

 

Some example:

normal wear and tear? They actually had the balls to say that after only 2 weeks?  And um..... why does the stick covers look grey??? I tried Knack in a gamestop and the sticks were pure black.

Yeah, It seems like a BS excuse, after spending $460 on hardware and $120 on games I expected better customer service. The sticks are still black, camera flash just makes them look gray. They are a bit deformed though, especially the left stick.

Yeah I would contact them again to see if you can get someone different to actually take this serious and see if you are able to send them a screenshoot of your picture you posted(try opening a chat with them maybe) because if my control was doing that I sure wouldn't be happy either. I'm sure that doesn't feel good on your thumb either.

Why? They replaced mine no questions. You have a full year warrantee on everything the ps4 came with. Even the cables.

I noticed the rubber on the sticks is wearing off. When I look down, I see little shavings or pieces of it. What gives, literally? The DS3 did not have this problem.

ya keep pressing till you speak to the manager if you have to,  and that first rep should be fired. You have to be a total MORON to think anything can wear and tear in two weeks or less. At least normally............
