    Why is does a controller's warranty only cover 90 days?


    I've been searching around to fix a problem where my Xbox One controller's right stick drifts up when playing a game, it's especially annoying on games that have the camera mapped onto it. This happened just after 6 months after the day of purchase and now
    I'm stuck having to getting it replaced or buying a new one which will either way require me to rack up $60 bucks. It's idiotic how I may have to replace it every few months because of Microsoft selling faulty controllers, and have to keep on paying for something
    that should last a long time to come. Is there any way around this? It's really aggravating and frustrating.

    :)

    RT button clicks and won't work!

    If you already updated the controller's firmware, either get a new one or get it replaced if under warranty (90 Days).

    How is your Elite Controller holding up?

    Makes me wish I was in Australia or that America would do something similar.

    CONTROLLER DOWN

    Controllers are covered with a 90 day warranty. Are they official or generic?

    Elite Controller Rubber Grip - Coming Off Again

    Controllers are only covered under a 12 month warranty in the UK. Replacement controllers get a 90 day warranty or what ever is left on your remaining warranty. There is no consumer law in the UK to cover a device over 6 years. You could argue that products
    are should be covered for a reasonable length of time and due to ware and tare on an accessories 12 months is fair

    Broken elite controller

    Was the controller purchased in the last 90 days? If so, it maybe covered under warranty.
