Ps3 Controller Issue?

Discussion in 'Gamer's Heartbeat' started by Tastytrichomes, Jun 19, 2013.

  1. whenever i hold L1 down to aim, the left analog stick moves up in games, but not on the actual controller. so it's incredibly annoying to keep moving forward while aiming
    what can i do to fix this?
    i don't want to buy a new controller because PS4 is coming out soon

  2. Best I can tell you is take the controller apart and press the L1 button and see what's moving when you press it or buy a used controller.
  3. good luck man....something like this happen to me
    my ps3 controller took a beating right after getting MKombat
    tried everything...even throwing it against the wall  
    ended up jus getting a new controller..imo worth it, the Ps4 wont be backward compatible and you might want to play your ps3 games still

    FINALLY!!! someone tells me whether or not the PS4 is backwards comp. thank you. i halso have a bad controller. my OG black one. my daughters threw it alot. but yea. get a used one if 50 bucks for a new one isnt your thing. 'taint mine!!!
  5. haha alright ill order a new one
    controllers are mad expensive
  6. i will try it im currently looking for a screwdriver to fit in there....
    i ordered a new one, standard dualshock 3 six axis black from gamespot, got 5-ish dollars off so in total its about 50 bucks and gonna take 5-10 days to get here
    anyone else think its sad so few games actually use six axis?
  7. also does anyone have any games to recommend i buy?
    right now i have:
    Dead Space
    Dead Space 2
    Resistance 3
    Killzone 3
    Ratchet and Clank HD Collection
    Red Dead
    i've played through bioshock 1, 2, and 3
    same with assassins creed
    and uncharted
    is the mass effect series any good?
    i couldn't even get the screws out man, they're in there tight as hell
    i don't even have that specific issue either.. i was unable to do it anyway
    oh well, new controller is on the way
  9. got a preowned red one with dualshock 3 in it..
    43 bucks : )
