    I had the exact same thing happen to mine. I really think they need to rework the analog sticks. I've never had this happen to me with ant other controller before.

    i have 3 DS4's...

    - Picked up the week before NA launch at Gamestop
    - the pack in DS4 with my NA launch day console
    - a blue DS4 pre-ordered from amazon.co.uk

    they are all on a healthy rotation as there are two of us in the house they play regularly, and the battery life is abysmal...and not a single one of them has even began to show any wear on the sticks...and frankly neither of us take particularly good care of the controllers...

    MASSIVE amounts of FIFA played on on 3 controllers...healthy amounts of CoD, KZ, BF, and NBA2k as well

    my biggest complaint about the sticks is that they are not concave enough...even with the "lip" around the edge, the center of the stick should have been "dug out" more...i slip off the DS4 sticks more often than i EVER slipped off the DS3 sticks...

    Update on my previous post.

    My replacement sticks from ebay have now been installed in 2 PS4 controllers in my house for a week now.

    They are really nice. Well worth the 3 a pair I paid for them. Feels like a new controller again . Would recommend them if your sticks are badly worn like mine were.

    Hopefully these ones last a bit longer (based on what a lot of you guys have been saying they really should).
    Oh its bad luck to be you, A chosen one of many isn't new,
    When you think your full of luck, In the b*llocks you'll be struck, Oh its bad luck to be you, Diddelly dooooo.....
    Kinda sums up life, don't ya think?

    I have called Sony to get my DS4 replaced. The left stick started to show wear a few weeks ago and now the rubber is started to peel off. I will have to pay to ship it on Monday !

    I actually think it's a disgrace they don't send one first. Many people only have one pad and should have to stop playing their console due to their poorly built control pads.

    I'd just spend the $4 on the rubber grips, probably cheaper than shipping and add better feel. But either way, it should not wear like that.

    I'm used to it. I went through the same ordeal with my PulseElite headset that was cracking and my Playstation 3d monitor that I had to replace 3 times before they sent me one that was working for more than 1 week.

    The thing is you have to use regular mail when you send it to which is much cheaper than shipping companies like Fedex. Also, I always ship it on Monday morning, that way you don't lose 2 or 3 days when nothing happens because of the weekend. Usually I'm able to get a new Unit before the end of the week.

    In the meantime, I guess I'll catch up with GTA V on my PS3 !

    It cost me 5 bucks to ship one to Sony. I had the other swapped by KMart. Both of them split right open showing the plastic underneath.

    I put these babies on and problem solved they actually even feel better than stock with the slight popped-up cushion. I am money on 2k now from all over the court.

    No there is a bottom portion that wraps over the joysticks. They fit great though thats why you can barely see it. Honestly if these were the actual joysticks i'd be happy you can't even tell they are on. I got them at Gamestop if you want to check them out they are called Geltabz.

    Dude, picked these up a little while ago, haven't played a game with them yet but I love the feel! Love the raised white nub, feel sweet. Great call! Only had green and black 4 pack, but I dig the green.

    That looks awful. I haven't had any wear and tear on my DS4s yet but i haven't had them long. I wish some day they could make controllers that never wear down. I can't stand playing with a beat up controller.

    I picked mine up at Gamestop and they're also on the US amazon. I checked UK amazon and if you search Geltabz it comes up unavailable. Hopefully you can get a line on them, just played three hours of COD and while I suck, they feel sweet. Definitely an upgrade from the grip-its I had or whatever they're called. Also, my package plastered Xbox 360 across the front, but when u check the back it says ds4 as well.

    LOL nice setup well worth the 8 bucks for sure huh, don't they feel like the XB1's kinna but in a good way? I was stuck with the blue no skin to match would have looked killer on your flag controller but look good nonetheless

    Fixed it for ya. And still no issues with either of my DS4s. The sticks look like the day I unboxed them, and I have a ton of hours in BF4.

    Yeah, I saw the blue on Amazon but my Gamestop only had the one pack left so I jumped on. Also lobe that they are secure as hell and don't move or come off.

    My sticks showed very little wear, but these caps that vnmus turned me to dial up the controller rating in my book.

    I ended up just buying a set of kontrol freeks. They are fantastic and make the controller much better.

    Picked up two more packs today, found the blue, taking that. Giving a green and black sets to one buddy, my other buddy is getting the four black.
