A friend of mine wanted me to give attention to a video he found about the controllers of the Xbox One and PS4 regarding their thumbsticks.
What do you guys think?
That video was posted before. I think his thread was locked because his tiny post count. It looks like he created an account at GS to promote his youtube, which happens sometimes. He might have a point, I don't know, I haven't had any problems with my Xbone or PS4 controllers, but they are new machines so that doesn't mean much.
I wanted to know if I was the only one with the problem. Nope. I just went to youtube, the video has more dislikes than likes (although it's not popular at all) and people are mentioning this video's problem in the comments:
There you go. There were more comments than that, but I ended at 10 comments. There is a huge problem if he is serious about getting views.
... We used too much metal in the last build so lets just change it all to shitty plastic...It's a no wonder shit doesn't work for long when all the pieces made to be moved/worked are being made out of shit grade plastics that had a horrible life span when actually used.
My guess is that they're not engineered to break, but rather this is just what happens when shitty shit is made in China.
Anyhow, I haven't ruined a controller for years, except for one when I was playing that stupid GTA expansion, Lost & Damned, and that stupid arm wrestling mini game had that awful analog thrashing QTE that pretty much ruined my analog, caused it not to center right and slightly drift, never again will I touch that mini-game, or anything like that. Seriously, fuck devs that do that shit.
Fck your, robot...fck your...
LOL, robots and tinkering from the video reminds me of this:

Good afternoon, and welcome to "Robot Repair". My name is XG-7000, and I will be your host today. We will be repairing a grandfather clock. But first I would like to respond to the many letters we have received regarding the name of this show. People are saying that "Robot Repair" indicates that broken robots will be repaired, when in fact, what happens is that a robot, me, shows you how to repair a variety of things. I agree that the name is confusing, and I have asked the producer to change it so that there is no further misunderstanding. And now, let's get to repairing that grandfather clock....
(Link in paragraph and prepare for a laugh in the four minute video...hahaha.)
its not only gaming controllers. its every single product you can buy, they are made to brake, form light bulbs to hair dryers. its called "programmed obsolescence" or something like that. there's a pretty awesome documentary about it you can find in youtube.
that's how all technology is designed these days take a look at smartphones for the worst culprit's
None of my Smartphones seems to be breaking. Maybe you just buy Samsung or something.
Use your keyboard!
