    Ran across discussions that say Valve's $300 Index controller thumbsticks are defective.

    If it was a design choice (and not PR damage control) that does seem weird that it would register the input on all axis but only offer a tactile click on either the x-axis or y-axis when at the limit of it's movement depending on the controller. But at least the controller still receives the user input. If it doesn't then Valve will replace the controller as then it is truly defective.

    Regards,

    Perhaps we will see wireless for the index soon. I don't think they will have another headset themselves till late next year or the year after
