    I am getting really p***ed of with the reliability of the PSP joystick (well the one's bought online anyway) my third one has snapped half way up the stem with little or no pressure at all. Great! That's a total of three PSP joysticks broke now!

    Stock one shattered into pieces
    Got my first replacement from PSPtree, that didn't last too long. broke at the bottom.
    Third j'stick (well this time ordered two from MrmodChips) this one has broke in the middle as explained above.

    I have a spare from MrMC which i am going to fit today. However after looking at my inlaws PSP the joystick on his is different, the washer is a part of the stick? Did Sony realise this was a weakness? If so we origional PSP owners should have been informed about this hardware change?

    The replacement joysticks i have bought are not as smooth (best described as a grinding feeling) when moving the stick! Perhaps the replacements i have are cheap rip offs!? If anyone knows any reputible stockists please let me know.

    The best Sony offers is me to send my PSP in and for £65 they will send me a new one! How crap is that? These portables are not 'buy and dispose!'

    I want to keep mine. :mad:

    Edit: To add insult to injury the replacement sticks have never been completely centre i.e. characters moving on own accord!

    No pressure at all on my third Stick.
    The second my son broke.
    The first was the play gear pocket lid didn't shut properly and shattered the inside.

    I'm gutted. Surely someone has replaced theirs with no problems?

    What you mean your not supposed to throw the PSP when you throw a granade? :blush:


    Edit: I suspect its the thumbsticks i am using. I changed these sometime ago maybe they pivot too much!? I remember reading on another forum. or maybe here of a problem with these and the joysticks. Can't find my old one though!
