The PS5 controllers have a ‘drift’ problem – News

Several months after the launch of the PlayStation 5, the DualSense controller that came with the game console appears to have problems for some users.

The DualSense controller is one of the great novelties in the PlayStation 5, a controller with haptic feedback that lets you experience some games better. However, the thing has technical issues for a range of users, where it moves your character in a certain direction, even if you don’t provide the input for that yourself. This so-called ‘drift’ is very reminiscent of the ongoing problems with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers.

Complaints about controller drift have been around since its launch in November. On Reddit and Twitter, among others, users report that they sometimes lose control of their avatar.

Complaint

In the US, a law firm has meanwhile started an investigation into these reports. It is about an office that previously also sued Nintendo for Joy-Con drift problems. US consumers can sign up for a class action lawsuit via a form on the website if they consider themselves a victim of the problem.

Anyone who suffers from ‘controller drift’ in our country is still covered by the legal warranty and it is best to contact Sony or the supplier of their console as soon as possible.
