PS5's DualSense controller also faces drift issues
Players started reporting malfunctioning joysticks as early as ten days after their purchase
Sony's customer support told Kotaku that controller drift is covered by the console's warranty, but you have to pay for the shipping fees yourself if you want to send the controller to a repair center.
It's under scrutiny outside of Europe too, with class-action lawsuits filed in Canada and the US.
Microsoft is also affected, with a class-action lawsuit filed last year, saying that Xbox One controllers have problems with faulty analogue sticks. The platform holder called for the suit to be handled in arbitration in January, on the basis that plaintiffs had agreed to terms of service specifying that form of dispute resolution
