you must smash them buttons very hard then for them to get that sticky or mayb you just eat while playing video games
but i dont think theres any solution for this just technical problems with the control
i know it happened to 2 of my 360 controlls

My ps3 buttons use to get sticky all the time from me playing ffxi and eating cause I didn't wanna get up and go to the table.  All I did was take apart my controller and take the controller and whipe the buttons down with a alcohol pad and whiped down the case holes where the buttons as well.  That helped til I started back eating and playing again.

Silicone spray.  It evaporates almost immediately and is a lube.  Go to Lowes or Home Depot.  Had the same problema.

Yea, take it apart and wipe it down with alchohol wipe or lightly damp cloth, or use the spray
AND DONT PRESS SO HARD OR USE DIRTY HANDS

I've got the same problem and I'm still looking for a solution. Might have to go buy some of that spray.
