With use and wear and tear, it’s common for many controllers to drift. Drifting is the controller’s analog sticks picking up movements even when you don’t touch the sticks. In games, this means your camera or the character will move on their own, or hinder your own camera or character movements. This can be extremely annoying and will make the experience quite miserable.
The Hall Effect completely gets rid of any drifting problems that a controller may develop over time. Because Hall Effect controllers use conductors and magnets to detect the movements and positions of the sticks, the controller will never drift.
