sixaxis replacement

Post by Zenbloke on Tue Feb 22, 2011 1:48 pm

Has anybody ever tryed to get Sony to live up to there promiss from back 2006 to replace sixaxis pads once they start getting good at holding a charge as my 2 pads now get about 8-10 hours now not the origanal 30 so I phoned Sony and they said no.
but this 2006 articul for gamesindustry.biz that I qouted they just blew me out of the water.

Sony to replace PS3 controllers
Wireless pad batteries will last for "many years" - spokesperson


Sony has told GamesIndustry.biz that the company will provide a service to replace wireless PS3 controllers "when and if" their lithium batteries degrade.

A report on GamesRadar.com observed that the pads do not feature removable battery packs, arguing this would render them "effectively useless" as wireless controllers after a certain number of charges.

This, the article claimed, would leave consumers "forced to shell out" for replacements.

But a Sony spokesperson told GI.biz, "This is a purely speculative story and is largely untrue. The latest generation of Lithium Polymer batteries hardly suffer any memory effect at all, so it'll be many years before there's any degradation in terms of battery performance."

The spokesperson went on to confirm, "When and if this happens, then of course we will be providing a service to exchange these items."

A European price point for the pads has yet to be announced, but yesterday SCEA announced they will retail for USD 49.99 (EUR 39). It was also confirmed that PS3 owners will be able to charge and use their controllers via a supplied USB cable.

If I was to buy a new pad I most certanly would not buy some scrappy knock off pad I'd go to Game ues my points and get a proper Sony one.
But the point of this topic was Sony saying one thing and doing something eles but as I have seen meny times now you seem to like being obtuse and okward.
