Random button inputs?

For whatever reason recently whenever I try playing the PSN release of God Hand, the game randomly acts like I'm pressing buttons I'm not. I have no idea why this is happening, as it wasn't a problem until recently, and it ONLY happens with this game. I also know for a fact it's not me accidentally pressing buttons. Anyone have any history with this issue or know a way to fix it? God Hand is not a game where you can put up with random button inputs, so it's unplayable for me until I can fix it.

I haven't played God Hand, so I cannot say that I have experience this first hand. I have however had issues with older controllers pressing random buttons when I click in the left analog stick. Usually when I would be playing Battlefield 3, pressing the stick would switch my weapon (as if I was pressing triangle). You may just not have noticed it as much on other games, but be wary that this may be an issue with your Dualshock 3.

Have you tried plugging in the controller? That bypasses any wireless interference, which is theoretically possible.

Also, do you have any other PS2 classics? If so, try one of them to see if the same thing is happening.
