PS5: First class action lawsuit filed for analog stick drift


Last week we reported an issue with the PS5's DualSense controller. In the last few days reports of analog stick drifting by various users on the Internet have increased. And now the first class action has been filed directly in the USA. The law firm behind these legal steps is the same one that sued Nintendo for the Joy-Con drifting some time ago. Before submitting the application, players had the opportunity to report their problems using an online form.

The text of the lawsuit states, among other things, that the DualSense controller of the PS5 has a defect, which means that all the characters move without manual operation of the analog stick. The law firm of Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith also accuses Sony of currently offering insufficient repair options for the controller. According to this, players not only have to pay shipping for the repair, support on the phone should also be difficult and time-consuming at the moment.

Lead plaintiff Lmarc Turner of Virginia is now demanding damages for the controller as well as reimbursement of the costs of the declaratory action and the public injunction. Sony has not yet commented on the issue. The law firm does not want to take the case to the arbitration tribunal. However, the PS5's Terms of Use (which the lead plaintiff also agreed to) states that any litigation will be resolved in an arbitration tribunal. We will keep you up to date on further developments.
