I need to figure this one out. My main Dual Shock 4 is, weirdly failing to register button presses in certain menus. Its fine and dandy on the dashboard but on certain game prompts (i.e. Valiant Heart's 'Press any button' prompt at the title screen) no button registers. Hence I have to switch to my spare pad (which is good for very little), press a button to advance and then switch back to the main controller. Then everything is fine.
Another example was happening last night. I was playing DmC and had tutorials on. Once the tutorial triggered I found I couldn't press anything to advance. Again, switched to plan B and then switched back to carry on with things like nothing has happened.
Now, I can't see anything obvious as to why this is happening. I don't see any button being jammed on which would override any inputs and games are controlling fine aside from these weird roadblocks. So... what is happening?
EDIT: Ah. Seems I have to disconnect then reconnect the controller. Still a very odd, odd, odd situation where it seems to lose track of the controller when you load into a game.
