GameScoop: Additional Issues with OUYA controller

Developers are expressing additional concerns over the OUYA’s controller directional stick the past few days, less than a week after OUYA announced that it was delaying its long awaited home brew Android-based console due to higher than expected demand. This new controller issue has come to light just days after concerns with the controller’s buttons and stick durability were brought up by the developers and addressed by OUYA CEO and Founder Julie Urhman in a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything).

This new directional stick issue, which is separate from the glue leakage issue OUYA has already addressed, is apparently a detection issue, resulting in extreme hot spots and dead zones for the directional stick. (Android, Casual games, Industry, Mobile, Ouya, Tech)

This is truly unfortunate.

I think there are just some realities that need to be understood.. at a $100 price point there is no chance in heck the Ouya is going to produce a controller that is as solid and on the same level as a Playstation or Xbox controller. People's expectations (understandably mind you) were really high for this console and its controller based on the marketing spin from the company. The reality is ... we are seeing first hand "you get what you pay for".

I was under the impression we could link PS3 controllers to the OUYA.

Is this a fact?

Its a hackable console so it should provide that functionality by hook or by crook.

But I would like to know that too.

From what I understood...
... 3rd party controllers like the DS3 and the 360 controller are supported right from the get-go.
