    Analogs getting cuts

    Are you guys having the same problem as I am? My Gamepad's analog sticks are having cuts due to moving them to the edges of the circle around them!

    Hmm, I haven't heard this before... My analog sticks just make a clicking noise when I move them. (Specifically the right one)

    What do you mean by that, exactly? And I haven't had any sort of problem with the sticks yet, myself.

    Do you mean they are tearing or that they care becoming unresponsive?

    Sorry for being unspecific! You know when you move the analogs all the way to the limit and it clicks? Well that means the analog hit the glossy material, stopping you to push the stick any further. Well, when you do a circular motion making contact with the material, the center of the stick will be cut by the material, and mine is getting worse and worse!

    I've only had that problem with the octagonal-slotted analogs (they'd get little notches in base) and never to the point where it affects gameplay or functionally damages the controller.

    i'm noticing it now, it's only a little mark though, not actually cut

    Yeah, my Nunchuck did have that problem, but octagon-shaped edges were less vulnerable to scratches, unlike the Gamepad's circled edges.

    Jeez bro how hard are you pushing on those sticks? I usually have that problem too but its 2-3 years into the consoles lifespan... (or 1 week after smash bros comes out)
