Best buy won't take it because i didnt buy a protection plan (i bought this online on black friday) and sony wont because they say its cheaper just to buy a new controller than to fix one. Great. Am I really screwed? I didn't do anything to this controller and the O button just stopped working. :/ There is really NOTHING i can do but throw this away and buy a new one? Ugh...God damn it.
The only reason I bought this was because it was on sale...and now I just wasted my ****ing money.

Buy a new one. Keep the receipt for it. Take the new one out of the package and put your broken one in it after cleaning the thing up really well. Return it with the receipt. Heck, at Walmart you wouldn't even need the receipt. If you still have the package and there's no Best Buy markings on it, just return it to Walmart without a receipt.. tell them you bought it last week and you just want to even exchange it for a new controller. Easy.
don't you have a standard warranty for defects on the controller? sony shouldn't charge you to fix the controller if it's no fault of your own, something like that should definitely be covered by standard warranty, not sure how the law works in the US so it could be different.
