Well, it def is... man I've been having the worst **bleep**ing luck with PS3 issues lately

 

this has been my 2nd controller in a MONTH and I'm not about to go fork over 60 bucks to the dumbasses at SONY

 

Tell me that PS3 controller are NOT worth the 60 you have to pay for... they're so cheap n **bleep**ty

turn the controller off, then on again - making sure the sticks are centered when its turned on.

Guys, he obviously means his character is spinning, not the controller. This is well documented, though I haven't seen it in awhile.

 

OP: It happens when there's an interupption in the Bluetooth signal. I'd suggest trying to reset the controller with the pinhole at the back. If the problem persists, see if there are any devices around that might be causing interference, like a cordless phone etc.

 

If all that fails, your BT receiver on your PS3 may have an issue.
