good deal but I learned my lesson about the DS4 already. The quality is so bad that all DS4s get either stick drift or mushy buttons after a few months of regular use. Only way around it is to wait until black friday $39.95 deal, buy from best buy with 2 year geek squad replacement. Then when the controller inevitably breaks then just take that piece of shit back to the store and get a new one every time for straight 2 years

They actually have the replacement plans again? You'd think they would've learned when people 'leased' HDtv's and other big ticket items for two years and bring them back right at the end of the replacement plan period to get a gift card towards a new one. LMAO

As for me I have a bunch of these from various clearances ($11 Walmart, $17.98 Target, etc). So I'm set on them for a while.

The only thing that was messed up with my one I just got rid of two weeks ago to Gamestop was the right directional was a bit mushy on the D-Pad. That was from playing Broforce constantly for the past two years.

It's my favorite controller, but I have to agree on quality. Though, it's only been the stick drift for me. Everything else is perfect. I just bought a controller same price. Might buy this one to last me until I buy a ps5

Hmm I seem to have no problems with the DS4. I've been using the controller with daily usage and it's been a year and half. Good deal!

Same here. Although the D-pad on my original controller seemed kinda 'mushy' on the right directional from using it so much in 2-D platforming type games over the past couple of years.

Only thing that would worry me is how often these things have to be recharged. Usable battery life on a charge went from 20-25 hours WITH vibration on on the Dualshock 3 to 12 to 15 hours IF you're lucky on the Dualshock 4 and that's with vibration OFF, speaker turned down and the light dimmed. Though NONE of that really eats up the battery life as much as the touch pad they added this gen. That thing is ALWAYS on and it's sucking down power even in games that only use it as a clickable select button.

It's my least favorite personally. I would put the xbox ahead and the switch pro way ahead of it.
