Far Cry 3/controller question

#1kingofall214Posted 3/6/2013 12:09:51 PM
Hi all. I have been having a problem while playing Far Cry 3. Whenever I get into a fight Jason keeps pulling out the damn camera randomly and it keeps getting me killed. Now I am not sure if it's a glitch or if there is something wrong with my controller.

I am thinking it might be my controller because once in a rare while the XMB will start flipping out for no reason while I am on it. This seems to happen whether the controller is plugged in or not.

My question is if anybody knows about this issue and if so if there is any way to fix it. I really don't want to have to buy another remote. It is the official remote.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What do you mean by "fight"? Does it happen if you let Jason still?
When an animal bites you? That's the only time I remember the camera moving from side to side.

I'm sorry I meant he pulls out the camera like I am pressing the Up button on the D-pad even though I'm not. It usually happens when I am trying to run to cover and to do that I have to press the left stick in. So it seems like every time I try to push the left stick in to run instead he pulls out the camera. Sometimes he keeps pulling it out and putting it back repeatedly which makes me think my D-pad is going wonky.

I tried resetting the controller by pushing the little button on the back and am now playing to see if it keeps doing it.

I think your controller is going to hell on you. I never had experienced problems like that when I played FarCry 3

Yeah I reset it and it still does it randomly. Oh well. Guess it's time to buy a new controller.
