So, will Sony still replace a launch DS4 because of the rubber peeling off the thumbsticks?

I haven't had any problems with mine until my kids got Disney Infinity for Christmas, guess they are tougher on them then I am. One thumbstick is already peeling off and the rest on both DS4s are showing signs. I bought some gel pad covers at GameStop today and they seem fine but just wandering if I can still get a new controller from Sony.

Have they even fixed the issue or does it still happen on new DS4s?

I don't think they have fixed any issues with the DS4. I have the problem with the R2 trigger breaking. I wish they would come out with better quality controllers or another company come out with a controller that isn't made with cheap plastic parts.

Doubt they will replace it since it is out of warranty. Wouldn't hurt to call and ask since it was a known issue.

Checking out Spotify premium on PS4 but their is no listing for albums under your music which makes searching through songs a pain.

They did fix the peeling problem, well by fix I mean the rubber formula has been changed because the newer controllers don't peel anymore.
However, the R2 trigger keeps breaking on mine. 3 controllers with the rubber peeled, the 3 replacements have all had the R2 break. I can't really figure what is breaking the R2 trigger. If in my 3 cases it was mixed between L2 and R2 then I'd think dropping it was the culprit, but it is always R2, including my friends and brothers. So that is 5 controllers I know of that R2 broke; specifically the plastic pin that anchors it into a slot breaks off.

I think it is that singular metal spring. I removed it on one controller and honestly the trigger pull felt so much better. Almost like the spring causes people to squeeze "harder" which leads to pulling the R2 to the right.

Oh well, my R2 triggers are fine so I don't think I want to trade one problem for another. These seem to have done the trick anyway, for now at least.

Lol. One of my controllers has a broken right trigger and the other has both rubber pads falling apart. I need to buy some parts and fix them some day. They've been busted for a long time but keep on ticking.
