Apparently, the new Sony DualSense controller has been getting a lot of reports with different troubling issues. Like triggers failing and no longer working, the sense benefits wearing out on the controller over time of use. And my personal favorite, analog stick drifting. I say my favorite, because this is now happening to me. Just a couple of days ago, I noticed my left analog stick drifting to the left and its gotten worse. Now, I've dealt with analog stick drifting before with a couple of PS2 controllers and some third party ones, but the drifting has never been as bad as on my current DualSense. The controller acts like it has a mind of its own as if it was hacked or possessed. Its not just a little drift, the controller literally fights me for control when I try to use it.
It seems like this has been such an issue, that a class action lawsuit as been filed by people believing Sony did this on purpose to force new controller purchases. I remember, Jeff B complaining on a past podcast that his controller started acting up while he was playing RE8. I'm hoping this might be an issue with the latest controller driver, but some how I doubt it. There is also the fact that Sony will only replace the controller under warranty and it would take weeks before it is shipped back and you have to pay the shipping fees.
Needless to say, this is a real bummer.
