Anybody's dualshock controller have that opening by the right joystick?

5 replies 18 views Edited Apr 8, 2012

Wanted to know if this was a common thing but my controller (near the r3 button) cracked and now has a little opening.  This has happened to two of my controllers.

lol-cat-queen-of-france.jpgI have had PS3 since 2006, I have 5 controllers and I use at least one of the almost everyday and none of my controllers have ever cracked open, I have never heard of this happening before. Are you talking about "Official Sony DualShock 3" controllers?

I'm in the same boat as bronxsushi, I've had multiple DS3's and Sixaxis controllers since 2006 and I've never experienced anything like that before. I don't think they're meant to be thrown against the wall

I had controller with the edge surrounding the L3 button where pieces broke away, but I think that was just fatigue from the toggle rubbing against edge.. Also, the rubber part on top of the toggle comes loose on alot of my controllers from wear and tear when I play the NHL games.

agreed...even though i am guilty of the occasional throw it to the floor mad thing lol...i still have never had a single issue like this or any other and i been using this same controller for a couple years,i pull my one other one out from time to time to just charge it unless im playing some 2 player with a friend or something..

Honestly though it sounds like just wear and tear. Unfortunately, they don't last forever, I'll be sad when my red DS3 finally gives in.
