Does your DS4 analog stick starts to peel off a bit ?
Playing fifa14 for awhile.
Came to realize that the left analog stick peel off a tiny bit.
Tiny bits came off a bit.
I have not personally had this issue but I've read at least half a dozen threads where people do have this same issue as you. It should be covered under warranty but you might have to pay for shipping.
This is the one Time I can't can't take Sony side even with the warranty replacement. You have to pay to ship your broke controller to them and they will replace it. This cost you $6.00 or more shipping for a rubber parts that cost 5 cents to make. No reason to trash a good controller for one. Sending you free replacement cover would save both you and Sony money. Also saving you time with out your PS4 if you have no second controller.
My left stick has a small tare on the outside edge. To much Resogun I guess. While my PS3 controller 5-6 years old still looks like new! You can even still see the small texture on them.
I got on Ebay and ordered 5 sets of analog controller sticks. That's the whole thing not just the cover 10 of them 5 sets for $6.99 They are from China and may be knockoffs but it says made by Sony and they have many thousands of positive feedbacks. I waiting on them now.
I also bought 2 different sets of covers from Walmart cost me $5 each.
Getting Older doesn't mean it's GAME OVER
It's a better idea to buy games for your PS4
Than to buy a New Console for your PS4
My sticks are fine and show no sign of wear. However, I have only had my PS4 since Christmas so it might be too early to say. I know that many people are having problems with theirs, but I actually really like the feel of them. I don't see myself using any covers for them unless they completely deteriorate. Seems like people are making a bigger deal about them being terrible than is warranted.
Mine have been holding up really well. Have had 2 since day one. I am using one on my PS4 or the other on my PS3 daily. Have not run into any issues other than the analogs getting a little oily from my hands. I find my self having to wipe it down on my pants every once in a while. Probably just me and my overly perspiring hands though lol.
I am not too rough on mine but I have heard it squeek a few times which has me a little concerned with the durability of it. Feels great in my hand and shows no other signs of wear, just the occasional squeek.
