God of War broke my controller :lol:

First issue I've had with Sony hardware in basically forever, luckily I have a spare controller. The R2 button basically became limp so obviously the spring inside cried enough, have to say Sony's fix and repair service is decent but slow, 12-15 day turnaround for a fix or replacement.
Yeah but how long were you on the phone for?

3+ hours for me the first time... I'm dreading doing it again but I guess I better get onto it...

No, you have to call them and trust me do it at 10:30am when the lines open or be prepared to be on hold for 2 hours. They send you a returns label to print off, so basically you just have to box it and send it.

Haven't had it back yet but it's with them now so 4-5 days apparently.

Ffs. That's likely to put me off doing it all together. Assumed it could all be arranged online.

I don't know if its the controller that was packed with the console or the extra one I bought but I got it all from Very.
Oh unlucky. If it was Amazon, I would have told you to return the controller back to them for a replacement.

Game have just dropped
Out of stock already, was in the queue for about 30 mins.

Going to try once more maybe next week but there's better things to do. It's been so difficult to get stuff recently - even the switch was like this when I was trying before. My Oyster Perpetual Rolex was similar last year. Just too many resellers

I think I'm going to just bite the bullet on a Switch with Super Mario World 3D and Mario Kart.

Someone reddit suggested I buy one on Amazon and return my faulty one for a refund. Feel a bit of dick doing that though

Trying to sell a ps5 on eBay. Seen them all go for 860 to 900 and they have to pay 50 quid extra with delivery. Yet mine is slightly less then that and with paid delivery. Eejits.

Are you referring to controllers that come with the console?
Yeah, I did it with my PS4 launch console. I made them refund me for the controller only and bought another controller separate from them.

Or you could do what the Reddit guy suggested above. It’s not like you are scamming anyone. You have a faulty product. It’s easier dealing with Amazon than Sony and all Amazon will do is send it back to Sony, so it’s not like they will lose out.

Bragging about selling consoles above RRP should be a bannable offence.

Been trying to get one (not so hard though) for a couple of weeks, but still no luck.

I was playing my PS4 in bed last night, the DS4 feels very small in your hand when you get used to dualsense

I know, I must've mentioned that about 20 times in the short email I sent them :lol:

They really didn't want to know.

Yeah, I'm currently finishing God of War at the moment. As soon as I'm done with that I'm moving on to Control.

I’m a bit gutted I didn’t hold off God of War after the update, honestly one of my favourite games ever.

I’m finding myself mixing between too many games at the moment.

Me and my partner are really enjoying Sackboy! Amazing game, loads of fun when one of you isn’t that great at games.
