    OUYA Controller accuracy problems

    UPDATE: I have been informed that the newer controllers that are now shipping have a "Fix" for this issue integrated into them. ... Eddie K (admin)

    There is a disturbing test of the OUYA controller on the official forum: http://forums.ouya.tv/discussion/com...#Comment_11439
    Could someone with OUYA do the test and compare the results?

    This is disturbing news.

    Re: Controller accuracy

    Looks pretty bad. Not seen anything that weird since quantum mechanics class at uni...

    Thank god we can use ps3/xbox controllers!

    Wow it only gets worse and worse. To think I was making fun of my friends for buying those cheaply made Android sticks and they might turn out to be better built than OUYA. I'm going to be walking with my head down for a while

    This could potentially be a side effect of the glue seeping in. Even if it isn't, it's potentially game breaking. Games these days are more demanding than they were only a few years ago and we need precise controls or we're fucked. I'm for one not buying a $50 controller if it's just a modern day Intellevision controller. There's no excuse for this and needs to be fixed.

    Stupid shitheads.

    I'm going to guess this is a software / firmware problem. I initially thought OUYA were doing this on purpose (i.e. snapping to the axes to make it easier for games that just have up/down and left/right movement rather than full range of movement). But seems it's something deeper than that

    Nothing to do with glue. Trust me, leaky glue doesn't do precision maths. Also shows up on my devkit controller, which has no problem with the freedom of movement of the actual stick (the stick ain't sticky! )

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Judging by the plots, it almost looks as though it was designed that way. Money saving maybe? Certainly not caused by glue. That would be some precision gluing!

    So this is... good news? If it's not a buggy firmware then it's most likely a hardware problem in the controls. Let the recalls commence!

    You know, people say that I'm a very crazy woman but I seriously think it's just a low threshold for stupidity. Not calling you stupid of course, but what purpose other than saving a penny a controller would they have for this? I suppose that WOULD be some awesome gluing powers but I find it harder to believe that it was intentional as-is. I think it might just be a shitty controller.

    No way to tell without official word from OUYA. Could be anything from a poorly designed circuit board under the stick itself, to a bug in the way the data is being returned by the controller API, to anything in-between. Chances are it's a software/firmware thing though
