Is the Micro USB charging port the same as the DS3? Apr 19, 2014
I see the blue controller is available Sept 9th, is the red coming too? I thought they both were...? Aug 17, 2014
The red one is out but it looks like Amazon just fulfills it and not actually sells it. Plus, it is a bit more expensive than the rest of these controllers.
Are the sticks confortable to play with? Meaning it won't slide my thumbs by mistake like with the DS3? May 8, 2014
I know what you mean with the DS3, that was so annoying. On the ps4 they did a great job fixing that. I've played for hours some days and the thumb sticks stay durable and also they are a lot more comfortable than the ps3. The whole remote is a step up.
Can this be charged with a microUSB phone charger (wall charger) or does it have to be plugged in through a usb? Apr 30, 2014
Wait it does? So unlike the PS3 controller (which will ONLY charge from a charging dock or the console itself or a laptop left on 24/7), when my controller's running low I can plug it into my http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-SurgePlus-3-Outlet-Charger-Protector/dp/B00ATZJ5YS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1401067989&sr=8-3&keywords=belkin+wall+charger WHILE I play with the supplied charge cable (that came with the console)? :D EDIT: June 10th 2014: Well after getting the console, I can confirm that the controller WILL charge from a wall charger, however it HAS to be a 1 amp plug. That belkin one I listed above it 2.1 amp and it will NOT work on that or the other 3 2.1 amp wall chargers I have, and it will NOT work on the like 4 .5 amp chargers I have either. It will however work on my new phone and new portable Bluetooth speaker's wall chargers, which are both 1 Amp. I guess something in the controller won't kick in to charge unless it's receiving exactly 1 Amp. Of course needing to charge one from a wall socket near you while playing becomes a moot point once you get a charging stand and a 2nd controller to swap to.
can you replace the battery or get the PS4 controller fixed, I bought one, the receipt had expired by the time I opened it and It does not work Dec 1, 2014
You can't replace the battery. It depends on where you bought it. Most places will take it back even if the receipt has expired. As long as the controller isn't worn out or have water damage. Just explain to them that isn't working and you didn't open it immediately.
I believe the answer to that is to save on cost, and the fact that the PS4 and almost every other device nowadays comes with a USB cord. Personally, I just use my cell phone charger if I'm not using the usb cord that came with the PS4.
