    How Worn Are Your Controllers?

    I was just wondering how much wear and tear your controllers have gathered over the years. The controller that originally came with my PS3 is still in pretty good condition. The battery life has degraded, but it's doing better than my other controller. I bought my second controller in april '09. The circular plastic part at the base of the analog stick has degraded on each side, but the worst of it is on the left side due to the fact that it is used for moving in-game. The analog stick is also filed down in the center. It's missing a screw and is cracked a little at the part where it curves (Thanks CoD!) There's also something loose in the contoller that sometimes jams the R2 button, but you can shake it out of the button to fix it.

    There's some dirt around the buttons (which bothers me but I'm too lazy to clean it) of my original. I bought my second controller this past summer, and it still looks brand new.

    My original controller is in good condition, the analog sticks are a bit loose but that's just from playing games and it's a bit dirty. My second controller is in excellent condition cause I only just bought when I picked Uncharted 3 up, so it's not even 2 weeks old yet and I haven't used it.

    Still have my original launch Sixxasis controller. It's been beat to hell, the analog stick gets stuck and moves your character up if left alone. The opposite stick gets stuck to the right. Doom has three other controllers, the black and pink controllers are fine and my Red controller which I use for Mahvel is starting to show some wear but it's still damn strong.

    The one that came with the ps3's buttons get stuck now, one of the analog sticks are constantly being pushed up.
    Another one I bought after it happened, has it's L2 broken so the slightest movement makes it activate, throwing nades in FPS or screwing me over in any game if pressed.

    My three controllers are still in good nik. They are too expensive to be throwing them around.

    Exactly mate, only reason I bought my second controller was cause it was $50 instead of $99 that was cause I was getting Uncharted 3.

    I have 2 controls. My original that came with the PS3 when I bought still looks pretty new just dusty. And my blue controller which I got a few weeks back still looks brand new.

    I got 6, 4 are f**ked up loose as sh!t, rattle noises, recessed L1 + R1 butons and grooves worn into the analogs. 1 is brand new and I only use it if I feel I need a stiff stick(that sounds dirty) and one is nicely broken in.

    All my controllers are good except one. The red controller my wife bought me last year was finished within the first 3 months. I think the controller I got was a dud based on after the first time using it you could see red residue rubbed off the controller and onto on the analog sticks and over time the plastic was so badly rubbed away the left analog stick just popped out of the casing and yes I did use it a lot but I've used my black ones a lot more and they're still fine.

    The controller that came with my ps3 is retired, loose analogs, chipped, and it in FPS games I would randomly jump and shoot at the same time.

    Red Controller is still new
    Blue Controller is still new
    Silver Controller is getting some hours into it with all the games I play

    I keep a sealed black dual shock just in case the other three suddenly drop dead

    My dog got a hold of one of my controllers about a week ago and scratched it to shit. Completely took off the rubber on the . It still works but it makes playing with it a bitch and a half.

    My controllers are in great shape. I think controllers are way to expensive to destroy them because you can't beat a game or you die in cod lol.
