I bought two PS3 TE round 2 sticks during the December 2 for 1 sale and one of the sticks has a slight hitch in it. Mostly when moving Right or Down-Right, though sometimes I feel it happen in any direction. Just the barest extra click or bump when you first move the stick, but before it engages the switches.
It doesn’t affect gameplay and it doesn’t happen all the time. It is kinda annoying, though. the other stick doesn’t have this problem. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
