Yeah, a bit disappointed with that response. Sony must keep all the good units for themselves. Anyway it will be interesting to see if the next FW fixes the issue.
If you're referring to the response from the guy named "PllayStation" (with the extra L) and thinking he works for Sony, he doesn't - if he did he would have a title such as "Moderator" under his name, not "Member". It seems he's just a rather large fan.
In regards to your issue though, are you definitely not holding the stick in a certain direction when turning on the console? It sounds like the stick is calibrating its neutral position at bad times (such as when its being moved). If it does this mid-game, so it's working fine then suddenly the issue occurs, I would suggest contacting PlayStation support for some troubleshooting and/or to see what your other options are - their number is in the back of all game's instruction manuals.

Hey, just found a working solution in another forum. Had the same irritating problem playing Uncharted. Somebody suggested making circling motions with both analog sticks at the same time (thus resetting them or something). Worked for me (at least tonight it did), hope it helps!

I have had exactly the same thing happen playing UNIT 13.... I was nearlly going to return/swap/fix, but as you stated, after turning off it is fine for a while, then it happens again.... I have NO IDEA why it is doing this, but it does make playing games that bit more difficult....

Hi, I posted the same query on the UK ps site. I've returned 3 consoles so far because of this fault, on my 4th!! Still getting the issue though... I think it must affect all consoles, just some less than others. Well, I also hope a fw update will fix this, but we'll see...

I have the same problem with Uncharted. It seems fine with Resistance: Burning Skies though and demos I've played with it. What I did to get around it was turn off and back on and then load up Uncharted. Once you've started loading the game, just gently hold the left stick to the left so that you're essentially recalibrating the zero point slightly left. This way, you regain control and have full left and right movement in the game. You will have to do this every time you load Uncharted though or you will experience the same problem with him either constantly wanting to walk right or not being able to run to the left. Hope that helps.
