Mid game, left thumbstick literally broke off internally. Without touching it, it fell limp like a willy in need of viagra :(. I know these controllers are prone to broken sticks but jeesus.
thats the third controller this year that has had this happen. Microsoft needs to fix that ish.

    Happens to almost all my controllers. Been through so many because of this f*cking problem. The controllers are woeful. Like really poor.

    I've had the same controller that came with the console 18 months ago, I've had no issues at all. Maybe you need to be a bit more gentle with your "willy"

    I ended up ordering a pro fusion A pro wired controller... Seems to be more durable and was 59.99 on amazon with prime shipping.

    Really? I throw my controller around but it's just as good as new. But seeing this I should probably treat it with more care.

    That's happened to one of mine. It's not broken, but it just drifts to the left slightly when I'm not touching it. I found out that clicking it repeatedly for sprinting in shooter games causes it to happen the most frequently. I went through about 4 Xbox 360 controllers from that issue. I've only had it happen to one Xbox One controller though, so it seems they improved them a bit, at least from personal experience.

    Weird, mine happened originally while playing msg4. Hear the xboxone thumbstick internals are plastic where as they were metal in the 360.

    Open it up, take thumb grip off the stick. Put cotton wool on top of the grey stick(not much). Stick grip back on and screw back together. Saved me from buying a new controller and it's working fine now. Same controller that I've had since I got the console.
