None. I still have the one that came with my PS3, and it works just fine.

..maybe I'm considered OCD, but I NEVER eat while gaming. I used to when I was a kid and the controllers would get all nasty. I have never EVER thrown any of my controllers, because in the end it's just a game, and PS3 controllers are damn expensive..so..

I can't believe how fast some people manage to damage controllers. I use mine basically every day, and all 4 act like new 2010 to now. I had 6 controllers, but I loaned them out. 1 went to family with kids, and it took the kids 1 week to make the controller wig out. The other went to newly weds so they could play 2 player at home. Every time they got in an argument they seem to have decided it was ok to throw it at each other. 2 months later you can't navigate anything with it.

I have had the same two controllers that came with the bundle I purchased 5 years ago, no signs of dysfunctionality yet. o_O

Metal Gear Online destroyed 3 controllers in my 3 years playing the game. It doesn't help when you play Team Sneaking and actually try to wake yourself up when you get tranq'd.

I pick up at least one a year. They just die through over use.

None to one I guess? My original controller that came with the system still works perfectly, I just dislike the layout. I had a third party controller for years but the usb wireless reciever stopped working so I just got a new controller.

I play a lot of games, too. Like, an unhealthy amount. I guess I just take good care of my stuff.
