When Halo Reach was released on 14th September 2010 (less than a year ago) I bought with it the limited edition Halo Reach Controller. Now i don't play my xbox an excessive amount everyday, 1 hour at least, maybe more, (fitting round a job and studying) and use it mainly for Call of Duty. But recently I have noticed that my controller has become hard to use, especially for FPS or racing games.
Upon inspection I noticed that there is wear down on the analog stick housing, essentially a "groove" in the up direction, a sign of overuse or just general wearing out. The analog stick therefore gets halted in the up position upon making a circular motion on the analong stick, hence altering gameplay in the previously stated types of games. Now, Halo Reach has been out for less than a year, and I don't believe that before a year is even out a controller should be wearing down like that. I do not want to spend near to £40 on a new controller but I can't find warrenty information for the controller.
Where do I stand in respect to a new controller to replace this one as I do sincerley believe that any controller should not be breaking like that and i shouldn't have to buy a new one. I would upload a picture upon request as at the moment Icannot do that.
Thanks in advance.
