PS5: DualSense controller issues should come as no surprise to Sony
Sony could actually have known better and done better, because apparently the problems are well known. No wonder after all it is Sony not the only company struggling with this. Microsoft with its Xbox Series X and Nintendo also have it. We’re talking about Controller-Drift. Fighting for years Fans the Nintendo Switch with Operation problems at the JoyCons, lastly Nintendo finally apologized for it. But an apology alone is not enough, which is why Nintendo has been grappling with a class action lawsuit for some time. The same law firm has now also sued Sony over the drift issues with the DualSense controller, because apparently it was Drift-Problem at the PS5-Controller known.
The DualShock controller already had the PlayStation 4 Difficulty and drifted.
Gives Sony the same technique for that Joysticks for the DualSense-Controller of the PS5 used, as with the DualShock, the Drift reports actually not shock the company. After all, they made a conscious decision to reuse the same technology. But how can these problems arise in almost everyone Controllers come, no matter if Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft? An American company explains this clearly in a video in which the PS5 DualSense-Controller is taken apart to show the problem.
Actually driven out iFixit Repair kits for various technical devices and creates videos for them to help with the repair. However, they have already published several so-called teardowns and they are particularly known for these. In the case of teardowns, the technical or electronic device at hand is dismantled into its individual components in order to gain knowledge of the device without construction plans or further information. iFixit has just such a teardown now with regard to the DualSense-Joysticks of the PS5 produces and shows how the Drift-Problem can develop. Says so iFixit im Video: „
The DualSense uses off-the-shelf joystick hardware with a long history of predictable, preventable problems.“
The manufacturer is ALPS, according to the Analyst from iFixit, not directly to blame for the Operational Problemsbut rather the problem is that the Joysticks cannot be exchanged easily and without complications. Finally have to Joysticks endure a lot and therefore it is quite normal that these problems can develop at some point. In addition, the manufacturer ALPS specifies the life cycle of the sticks with only 2 million cycles. According to iFixit these 2 million cycles can be converted to about 417 hours, after which the probability increases Operation Problems at the DualSense exponentially. Of course, the life cycle of the sticks also depends on the type of use and other external factors such as dust or crumbs. So that is lifespan a flawless one DualSense-Controllers much less than one would assume for the proud price. If drift problems arise, gamers ultimately only have three options: Controller (have it repaired), if it is still under warranty, send it in or a new one Controller to buy.
