I could understand picking when the sticks start to peel, but I've never even had them peel. All the DualShocks I've had from the PS1 up to the PS4 (plus the PS3 Sixasis) have never had an issue with the sticks being worn down or peeled or anything. I have seen demo unit ones at stores with peeling or worn down sticks, but never in my own use have I had that.

 

 

 

In other news, anyone check out Destiny yet if they got into the beta?

How often was he playing to wear down an analog stick? :lol: I have my launch PS3 controller with analog sticks that still look new, plus two other controllers I picked up later that got even more use and still look great. PS4 one only has about four months of use on it, so way too early to even notice a thing.

All my PS3 controllers are in great condition. I did some research and watch many videos of people that only had their PS4 controllers for a few months and the grips were falling apart. Makes you wonder how long they actually tested these joysticks or what happened.

 

 

But hey, what is done is done, I am just hoping some grip-its or something similar can fix this problem.

I think a lot of it depends on the type of games you play - some games seem to lean more to what I'd call aggressive use than others, like fast-paced fighting games.

Yeah, in my case maybe the cracking was due to being left in the sunlight or something? I honestly don't know

 

As for the PS4s wearing out, maybe they have a softer compound of rubber for comfort and grip improvement but went too soft.

Fighting games get the D-Pad treatment, at least from me.

 

Interesting vid jkeener; guess some people aren't as kind as others. :lol: Still, putting some grips on the sticks should help, or like Dan said, finding a DS4 controller to cannibalize its analog sticks.

PS4 update 2.50 is slated to arrive tomorrow, with plenty of new features along for the ride.




  • Suspend/Resume* — Supported by nearly all of your PS4 games, you can jump in and out of your games with just the press of the PS button. Quickly switch from Rest Mode to powered-up so you can pick up where you left off.
  • Back-Up and Restore HDD to USB — Back-up and restore your hard disc drive data associated with users on your PS4, including settings, saved data, screenshots and video clips as well as games, patches and download data, to and from an external USB drive.
  • Find and Connect with Friends — “Yukimura” adds to an already robust set of social tools, bringing several updates to continue making PS4 the best place to play with your friends, including:
    • Facebook Friend Finder — Using your linked account, you can expand your network by searching and connecting with your Facebook friends.
    • Improved Friend requests — Friend requests and Real Name requests can be sent together in one step when adding a friend on PS4.
    • Streamlined Party process — The process to create a Party has been streamlined with a reduction in the number of steps required.
    • Find Friends who play your games — Easily view what friends are playing on each game detail page with a real-time “Friends Who Play This” section, which also highlights which friends are currently online and playing it, and if you own the game, allows you to jump directly into the game.
    • Join Friends directly from news feed — A new tile will be added on your What’s New feed where you can see what your friends are currently playing, enabling you to join in the game if you own it.
  • Share Earned Trophies and Optimize Your Trophy List — We know that Trophies are important to many gamers, so we’re bringing more control with how you show them off:
    • Automatic Trophy Screenshots — A screenshot will automatically be captured when a Trophy is earned, preserving the moment to share with friends.
    • SHARE Trophies — Players can share Trophy information to Facebook, Twitter or via Message by pressing the SHARE button.
    • Additional Trophy sorting options — Sort your Trophy list by Earned Date, Not Earned and Grade.
    • Delete 0% Trophies — Remove games from your Trophy list that have zero percent completion.
  • Improved and Expanded Accessibility Options — New options added to customize the user experience include:
    • Customized button assignments for DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller.
    • Zoom for displayed pictures and inverted colors for all system functions, apps and in-game.
    • Text-to-speech for all graphical user interface, including Message and Party.
    • Enlarged text for all graphical user interface, including Message and Party, as well as the system’s browser.
    • Bolder fonts and higher contrast UI for all system applications (but will not apply to games or third-party applications).
  • Remote Play and Share Play — For games that support 60 fps, users will be able to automatically enjoy those games with 60 fps for both Remote Play and Share Play** on supported devices.
  • Automatic Installation for System Software Updates — Enable automatic installation for future system software updates.
  • Sub-Account Upgrade — Enable users 18 years of age or older with sub-accounts to upgrade to a master account directly on PS4, removing restrictions on chat and enabling users to add funds to their Wallet, purchase content and more.
  • Verified Accounts — Select game developers, producers, designers and community managers will be verified with a badge.
  • Dailymotion — Upload video clips directly to Dailymotion via the SHARE button.
*Suspend/Resume is not fully supported by some software titles.
**A sufficiently robust wi-fi connection is required.

Since aquiring a PS4 PRO, I have moved mostly away from PC gaming, I still play RPGs and certan titles on PC but for the most part I live on the PS4. Playing on the Pro with a 60" 4k TV is pretty damn great.  Horizon Zero Dawn is a masterpiece so far in my opinion. The exclusives are great and I'm having fun with many of the games especially with HDR.  Anyone else on a PS4? What games are you playing? Do you have an opinion?

 

I know the PC gaming die hards won't approve. I know because I used to be one.

Yeah I moved away from PC gaming part way through the PS3/ Xbox 360 Generations. Now that games are made for consoles and ported to PC, it seems like playing on PC is pointless because it usually doesn't look any better. Also its cheaper, you can sell and buy used games. This all gives little reason to play PC games anymore unless its a RTS or MOBA.
