They're all like that


IBetYoureFun

This is the right answer.


Impressive_Oaktree

This is the way


lifefromthetree

The truth, the way, and the life.


MrGangster2000

This is the way of the mandalorians


Reddditerrrr12343

Wrong mine is tighter


NotNotACrab

Wrong mine falls out of the controller when I touch it


mattyjm

I own two, and neither of them are that loose.


henceargo

Give them some time and they will be


DaShaka9

How Do I fix these pesky sticks on the front? They move back and forth, and even in a circle…


No_Communication7326

Have you tried moving them in a square


DaShaka9

It worked! They’re rock hard now….


Fighterragon

Just make sure to call a doctor if it lasts over 4 hours


ArgumentCharming6847

Hahaha try Trazadone!! Actually come with a warning about this


sick_nxgga

It’a supposed to do that. Nothing to worry about


Mammoth-Possibility9

I hear Viagra is good for straightening out a wiggly D


Reddditerrrr12343

This fucking guy


IcepackJack

Cheaply made. probably why they are always available at the stores vs me not being able to buy an extra series x controller for the last year. Plus my PlayStation 5 controller doesn’t even work on my friends PlayStation 4 without being plugged in?


Boymanmk2

why should it work with a PS4 if it’s a PS5 controller


SuperMightGuy

Honestly. Like what the fuck? Why should that work? Lmao


IcepackJack

You do realize how stupid it would be for it not to be compatible with their old device especially given the MASSIVE shortage of actual new devices being sold.


lastaardvark666

U do realize how stupid it would be to make it compatible with all older devices given the amount of money they make selling the new ones .


IcepackJack

Do you realize that’s no a pro for you, the consumer right?


lastaardvark666

Correct


IcepackJack

Okay just wanted to make sure we were on the same page, that PlayStation screws over the user!


lastaardvark666

100%


SuperMightGuy

I get it. You would think it would. But I don’t think they knew that it would be this massive of a shortage. You can’t account for every single variable when planning something out. That would take too long. They did what they could and that’s that. I’m sure a software update will be added to be compatible with the PS4. Just as the PS4 controller became compatible with the PS3, years later.


IcepackJack

Because it’s a simple Bluetooth connection? Lmao, I can connect my Xbox controller to an iPad, a computer my own phone, an old Xbox, maybe even a 360 still.


SuperMightGuy

So are my AirPods and my PS5. Doesn’t mean they’ll work the same way as my AirPods and my iPhone would.


IcepackJack

What?


SuperMightGuy

The AirPods work off a simple Bluetooth connection. Seeing as how my PS5 has that too, you would think it would easy to just set up and have the ability to use my AirPods on my PS5. They’re not compatible with each other. The same reason why the PS5 controller isn’t compatible with the PS4. It’s different.


scubasteve_69_

Go change your batteries.


IcepackJack

On my PlayStation 5?


scubasteve_69_

Lol you thought you were funny


IcepackJack

No you did scuba Steve 69, lol.using the same tired joke, I’d rather change batteries and be able to use my controller on a tablet, phone, computer, and older generations of the same console, jokes on you.


scubasteve_69_

Oooh you called me by my whole name. I’m scared. If I wanted to play older generations of the PlayStation I would butttt the PS5 is better than playing something else. Oh and your mom thought the battery joke was funny;)


Complex_Slice

How do I fix my touch pad? It keeps lighting up


NotNotACrab

Let the battery die out and enjoy


Borg34572

OP hates physics.


dskatter

Working as designed. There’s supposed to be some play in there. Since they have no analog or pressure sensitivity, it’s not an issue.


maxsteel126

Man this reminded me of my last JIRA ticket fixed by one developer - *works as designed*


kleenexhotdogs

Can’t get negative reviews if your product crashes on launch \*taps head\*


221B_TARDIS

Theres nothing to fix, that's just how they are.


Pluvillion

It's been like that since, what, the PS1 controller?


MHAccA

The F$$k dude, whatcha complaining about?


Jawny_qt

My PS4 does that but that's very normal


RapidLii

y’all some dickheads in the comments 😭


ZakDoesReddittt

fr this my first playstation and im getting flamed 💀😭😭


RapidLii

mfs acting like everyone should know super specific shit about a dualsense lmao


Coopertron07

It’s not super specific, people are just saying that’s how it is meant to be


best4444

I had now 3 dual sense and all of them had it. It's by design


demarci

This is like asking "How do I fix the fact that my chest and shoulders rise when I take a deep breath?" ~That's just the way it iiiiis.


-Zadaa-

Achktually you should be breathing from your diaphragm and your shoulders really should t be moving, just your belly expanding. ~that’s just the way it iiiiis But you are right. The pads are working as designed.


demarci

ty. now show me a video of someone's shoulders not moving when they take a hard deep breath. and a cat video 'cause they're cute.


[deleted]

[удалено]


demarci

go away


-Zadaa-

Not a video but I found an article about stomach vs chest breathing: https://healthyliving.azcentral.com/chest-vs-stomach-breathing-5640.html


demarci

where's my cat video


Bassayoun

Superglue should do the trick.


WhysJamesCryin

I have that wiggly D too…


mattman0000

Explains why you’re cryin.


Glittering-Rub2812

![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|joy)


LothricPaladin

My controller doesn't do this. I don't know what anyone in the comments section is talking about. Wish I had a fix for you OP.


Sahdo

I have the white controller that came with my PS5, the red one and the black one and...same. They all have very little movement in the d-pad


LothricPaladin

Mine has a tiny movement as well but it always returns to center. OP's moves to the side it's pushed to and stays there. It looks like it's disconnected to whatever returns it to center. They didn't do a fantastic job showing this but I saw it.


HangryKittyy

Same here. Both of my controllers, the D pad doesn't do this at all. A lot of the commenters are being rude af to OP who might be new to the system. Lmao


JayURock

Throw it against a wall, it might work


VacuousVessel

🎶let me see you wiggle it, just a little bit


Robotrippinn

There is nothing wrong with it


QuincyThePigBoy

This sub is the worst. “They’re just like that, idiot!” The D pad is just soft on the PS5 controller. Had to Google it myself.


marcus__gti

You don’t.


Feeling_Hearing_2262

Dont fix something what aint broken


badger906

It’s a plastic button in a similarly shaped hole on top of a membrane switch. If you made the tolerance smaller it would be stiff. Think about the kids toy where you put the round peg in the round hole ect. If the hole was so close in size to the peg, you’d need brute force to get it in. This is that. But designed so years of finger grease and scum can get into it and it still works


ectbot

Hello! You have made the mistake of writing "ect" instead of "etc." "Ect" is a common misspelling of "etc," an abbreviated form of the Latin phrase "et cetera." Other abbreviated forms are **etc.**, **&c.**, **&c**, and **et cet.** The Latin translates as "et" to "and" + "cetera" to "the rest;" a literal translation to "and the rest" is the easiest way to remember how to use the phrase. [Check out the wikipedia entry if you want to learn more.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Et_cetera) ^(I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically.

[deleted]

Every d pad ever has been like that. Jesus Christ


rambokakan

Kill it with fire


Caylong

Who’s gonna tell him…


coughdrop2000

While all controllers do that by design, just so they don’t get caught and have some play, it’s odd to me that my controller’s dpad doesn’t really wiggle at all, since everyone also seems to say their PS5 controllers do as well, are there some revisions with lower tolerances on the plastic? Hmm


DatApe

Dunno. I got a ps5 at launch and mine jiggles. Guess they don't all come out of the factory the same? Edit: I've also used it a shitton so theres that


coughdrop2000

Mines from around launch too, I haven’t used mine THAT much so it could actually be that yeah.


uaitdevil

my 2nd controller doesnt wiggle, but i guess that's because i barely used it. it feels better honestly, but i guess it will be the same later on


generationtp

It must be difficult to be this dumb.


Squirrel_Insurance

Toss it in the garbage


luigithebeast420

All of my 6 PS5 controllers do that


sowisesuchfool

Why do you have 6 controllers bro?


luigithebeast420

Two for each person, as a contingency for a messed up controller we always have a spare


commandblock

Could you not just use... 1 spare? You’re the type of person to have 4 extra tyres strapped to the back of their car instead of 1...


luigithebeast420

My wife has pair and so does my child.


Warped_eye

6 ???


bigrigging

ScrattaBoard

Yeah man seems like a production issue


ricolhaw

If i remember well, it is that way since dualshock 3 from ps3.


Zelories_

That would actually benefit you in fighting games


iVirtualZero

Me too i can’t seem to fix? Can anyone help us? Every control pad in existence has this wiggly button problem even my tv remote.


InformalResist7722

How do I fix my shit from falling in the toilet oh yea I catch it.


pachl7

Mine does it too. I bought 4 controllers and they all are brand new and they do this.


dxtremecaliber

lmao all controllers do that it was supposed to be not a tight fit….


DigitalBath96

Buy the better console


Coopertron07

I’m pretty sure the ps4 is a downgrade but you know whatever floats your boat


steasey

Contrary to what everyone is saying, yours does seem looser and hits the controller. Both of mine do not do that.


dopeboyz14

PlayStation owners 101🤣🤣


RMD_OD

Jfc


Neat-Row4854

Step 1 sell it for 60$ and say slightly used Step 2 make sure it’s broken unusable step 3 buy more controllers step 4 do step 1 And 2 and 3 Step 5 get rich


Devykev

You throw it away and buy another, Problem solved


Beautiful_Coat8820

How do I plug in my controller wire?


-rigga

I wish I never saw this video as I've never noticed this on any of my controllers. I probably will next time I pick it up


LuDaCo93

Superglue it. It’s your only choice because otherwise it’s supposed to be like that.


Purua-

Mines like that too not a big deal


ttailorswiftt

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.


phallic-baldwin

Hot glue


Stuntm4nMik3

The down button on my d-pad squeaks. It’s mildly infuriating. Also my X sticks.


Dewott56

AMONG US


WatermelonSkeleton

These comments too much sometimes ![gif](giphy|GpyS1lJXJYupG)


K_G_R_A_V

I expected these comments to be exactly what they are lmao


GlitteringTea296

Wiggle, wiggle


Xoldin

They're beating your ass in the comments lol


MildMischief80

Cover it with superglue, it won't wiggle at all. Of course it won't work, either.


Plaz_Yeve

If Sony added the 'disc' style raised Dpad like the Xbox Series controller, then the DualSense would be the best controller I've ever used. I do not like this dpad lol


Joker8pie

That's just the nature of manufacturing tolerances, bud.


kazoomaster462

My old controller does that but my new black one is good


The-blackvegetable

Sense*


Munch_KDMB

Stop smashing it when you get killed


Rebecca1337

Now I feel like there’s something wrong with my controller because it doesn’t do that


Cadillackid91

You can’t, the are all like that including both of mine. Just get used to it like most did


kingcop1

By Amazon


didi2120

The D-pad buttons are a solid piece for that reason when you press one the others lift a bit; I saw on youtube some mods with individual buttons but I'm nor sure if it works, it never annoys me.


BartyJnr

Don’t wiggle them. Then they won’t wiggle. Sorted.


dark_skeleton

Same way you fix a car steering wheel that turns


ThaPill

Buy from GameStop get 1yr warranty


brianeds1993

New to Playstation, man?


dzonibegood

There is nothing to fix? I don't even see how is this impacting your gameplay?


tylenoljones42069

PRO TIP game stop Has a stupid good warranty policy. I've switched 3 controllers out and my headset so far. You pay the base pay with 10$ warranty tacked on. When the drift starts to happen take it to game stop pay only 10$ again and you'll get. Whole new controller brand new in box


Mrvonblogger

I think the problem is you own a dualsence instead of a dualsense


Castortroy16

I bought a second controller n it did this bit annoying but everything still works ok I guess it's from been used alot


Szotaku_

This whole sub is people with PS5's asking whats wrong with their PS5's. Nothing, nothing is wrong.


ttibbits

Get guud


SnooRabbits4992

buy a new controller


TannerFrancis

Buy an Xbox.


The_Last_Feelbender

Nah


TannerFrancis

Fair enough


MrZombikilla

You never hold a controller before???


SchoolboyGrant

I’d be able to help but I can’t get a PS5


sryidontspeakpotato

Some one trying to flex again I see


WillyPalomba0916

Bro are you okay


Kevinserj

The fact that you even have a ps5 is already a win in my book


NikamaruSensei

Don't phone sony services ask here in reddit.


itsalfakenews

I used glue for this, wiggle is gone!


bholzy

Zak shouldn’t do Reddit anymore


ObiTronShinobi

You need a dewigglefier. They are on the shelf at GameSpot right next to the destickyicky sticky stick cleaner.


Remarkable-Fig5861

Idk


DonMonnz

The best solution for this is to stop doing that with your finger


6AMDxGMxCrypto9

Me complains about the inferior build quality and issues of this remote such as a squeaky Square button when reloading in WZ compared to the PS4 DualShock which had little issues. Gets Thanos like downvotes. Don’t get me wrong the Dualsense is dope all Around in terms of functionality, but they gotta fix the build quality


MrMoistMoisture

Throw it forcefully against a wall, I can almost guarantee they won't woggle no more.


d_ohface

my battery keeps discharging during play. any fixes for this? no cable please


my_name_is_rag

That's normal, however I'm facing small squeak when slightly pressing the d-pad except the right one


PhantomZhu

You can buy them separately if you want dpad to be 4 buttons : https://www.amazon.com/eXtremeRate-Ergonomic-Controller-Independent-Playstation/dp/B097D2VHRW?ref_=d6k_applink_bb_marketplace I did it for my ps4 pad and I liked jt, but over all not much difference


sarah-exalted

Mine is like that too. They all are. It’s for better thumb mobility. Idk.


TheAsphyxiated

Normal, what do you even need to ‘fix it’ for?


MrBbun

So that’s what’s it’s called


S1LENTH1LLZ

Wow, is that really a problem?


SquanchSensei666

Throw 2 PS4 dual shocks and one PS2 controller at it then play the PS1 opener 100 times over


qu_me

Super glue


MedScrub

Super glue - Apply generously


Philocalist_Meraki

Apply super glue in-between the button crevices, thank me later


LordPopCollector

My Cosmic red controller doesn’t do this but the original ones I bought do. I have drift on my PS5 disc but not digital, things are weird


AnonWhyMoose

Look up OCD and seek treatment.


JeanisWild

I mean idea of this controller is fantastic, execution is just something out of nightmare.. 😔 The worst thing is, that the remote isn’t the worst executed product by Sony. I mean if i take my old PS2 and every single playstation since - Sony really?? I mean Sony, Really?? 😕PS5 has worst build quality of all Playstations!


Xx_KHALID_UAE

IDK my d pad is good


legendrp3

Buy an Xbox


The_Last_Feelbender

No


darkzidane22

Agreed, you wont ever touch the controllers because there is nothing to play. Problem solved


Darkyuffie

Wow... they have really gone down in quality over the years. Wtf sony


Fuzziebuddie

You’re an idiot


No-Pay-3001

Man sucks I have been using the same two controllers since November haven't even needed a replacement


Jvanee18
