Life of a controller ..

Recommended Posts

Bought a used system and once in awhile I have to hit the A button twice to get the result I want. Pretty much the only one.

So how often do you replace and do you use charging system or replace batteries ?

I have to replace my Xbox One controller nearly every time I drop it.... 

I also use the rechargeable battery because it's so much easier in the long run. 

What breaks on your controller ?

I never played with controllers as a PC gamer and it was only when I bought my first console, a Nintendo Switch that I realised how vulnerable joysticks are. After a year of use the left joystick is so slippery that the add-ons don't even stay there 😢

Nothing breaks off or anything, but it seems to break whatever board is inside of the controller. It just never functions once it's dropped for me.

I never had to replace a controller , I will always purchase two controllers whenever I purchase a new system just in case , Yes the controllers do start to fail after some years of gaming but usually by that time I'm already buying a new console and selling the old one.

I've never had to replace a controller either. I have two controllers at the moment so that I don't have to play whilst charging my controller. There are times where I get frustrated with games, especially with FIFA but I have never thrown it or broken it lol. Don't think I could afford to keep breaking it

I agree, $40+ dollars for an Xbox one controller every time I get mad would be a bit steep.

I've noticed that Xbox has it much better with controllers, both in terms of price and the options available for it. Xbox controller either are cheap or are always on promotion which actually makes it extremely cheap. Maybe that's to do with having to use batteries for it and not having a rechargeable battery like the PS4 has. But it also has customisation for it and so many different designs which makes it so much appealing. With the PS4, we just have some plain colours.

I've dropped my PS4 controller so many times and I am surprised it hasn't broke or stopped working. The only thing is the R3 toggle sometimes gets stuck but thats about it.

I have rubber padding around my Xbox one controller as well as the joysticks to protect them from falls and stuff like that.
