The one that came with my ps3 broke in 4 months, the second, doesn't not work right and broke. The third one, a Drop of coffee fell in it, A DROP, and never ever work again. Now im up to my fourth one. This is it, if it happens again im selling my ps3 and stick with xbox.
You must be highly abusive towards your controllers, because I've dropped and spilled stuff on my controllers many times and they are still going strong after years of service. In fact, most PS3 users will probably say that the controllers are quite durable and reliable. If you're going to switch over to the xbox because of an unlucky experience with the controllers, you really are naive.
Good for you that ur crappy ps3 controllers work, but as you can see most reviews here are for there controllers breaking, that's y they sell so much, and I'm not abusive to my controllers, nor am I naive to move to Xbox, where their controllers actually work.
I totally agree about the PS3 controllers. I own 2 PS3'S and lately I've been going through controllers like crazy. Lately they seem to be making them of lesser quality than in the past. I replaced my original controllers after some normal wear and tear after I had them for a few years. Now they don't seem to last longer than a couple months before they start acting up, i.e. unresponsive or doing something other than what you're trying to do. Very disappointing.... The PS4's controllers look like better quality. I hope they are otherwise I might have to consider the XBONE. Tired of buying multiple $40 controllers...
Yet it has happen again. No matter now many times I buy these crap controllers at retail they still break. I can't afford to keep buying them so I'm gonna take a break ofF of ps3 and play with my xbox and ps vita. Oh and after having my xbox for 7 years, THE CONTROLLER STILL WORKS FLAWSLESS.
