I was wondering if anyone else has this. After a good amount of time of not using the controller (say, a day or more), the analog sticks have a weird feeling to them, where you put your thumbs on them, and ever so slightly whenever you take your fingers off, it kind of sticks. It's as if sweat was on them or it was sitting in a sauna and the material started to melt, but that's not it at all, my hands rarely sweat when I play (though my brothers does). Whenever anyone else uses the controller, if their hands sweat, I always wipe the controller down with a wet rag, so someone else using the controller isn't the problem, though in a way it may have been since it could be a sign that the DualShock is wearing out.
So, does anyone else have this? My biggest complaint about the controller is this; I just wish I could somehow replace the PS3 analog sticks with the 360 ones, 'cause the 360 analog sticks don't do that. I hope this makes sense, 'cause it's somewhat hard to explain more if I didn't do it just now. It's not the kind of sticky that you'd get if you were to have sticky hands and then touch the controller (which is not something I'd ever do anyways). After you touch the sticks with your thumb and then feel your thumbs with your index finger, it's like you're taking something off of it. It will somewhat help the sticks if I wipe the controller down with the wet rag. If you need me to elaborate, I'll try my best. Could it be because the analog sticks are wearing out?
If so, then that's my one complaint about the DualShock, and I think Sony, if they're going to have the same kind of controller next-gen, they need to change the material so it doesn't do that.
