This caused the controller to have some small internal loose parts that at random affected its functionality. Soft and hard resets did not help. Quite upsetting. Even though the other controller helped me to maintain my daily video game routine. However the children’s joint game play got disrupted also not good for family life. And their friends lost interest to visit them! So after 5 years of daily service a new Sony controller had to be ordered, putting other family expenses on hold. A cheaper version was no option assuming these would even less able to withstand the children’s gaming rage.
