First PS5 Drift Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Sony

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Sony by Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP regarding the alleged drift present on Sony’s latest DualShock 5 controller which comes bundled with the PlayStation 5.

Taken from Gameindustrybiz … The lawsuit was filed on February 12 in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, on behalf of plaintiff Lmarc Turner and “similarly situated consumers.”

The lawsuit, a copy of which was sent to GamesIndustry.biz, argued that the DualSense controller is “defective” as it suffers from a drift defect, a problem that sees it recording input even when the player is not using it.

The issue “compromises the DualSense Controller’s core functionality,” the document continued, adding that Sony has been made aware of the issues through online consumer complaints. The lawsuit mentioned the case of a player encountering drift issues as early as ten days after their purchase, directly quoting the Kotaku report that unearthed the drifting issues last week.
