Anyone else experiencing a rattling sound if you gently shake the Gamepad? Sounds like something is loose but everything appears to be working correctly.

I think that's just the Gyro sensor/accelorometer. Not sure though.

Yeah, I thought it was the stylus at first too. Ok, at least I'm not the only one who thinks it's a rattlesnake. LOL.

my old remotes rattle, but still work perfectly. So if you can handle it, then it's not a big issue..

When I shook mine, it rattled a little, but it sounded like it was coming from the buttons on the right side. I held those down, and shook again, and the rattling didn't seem to occur.

While we're on the topic of noises from the GamePad. The two thumb sticks kinda make this slight tapping / clicking noise when I move them slightly. It's only when they are pushed slightly and not, let's say a full move to the right or a rotation.

I believe in make believe~

Holding the buttons down on mine cause it to rattle with less noise, like a baby rattlesnake ;) Good discovery!

Or to put said Vita back in said box or use said box as alt car keys. Way to spend $50million Sony :P

yeah I noticed it as well. But it's only where the buttons (a b x y) are located. My guess is they are a little loose. But How it's made, they are not just gonna fall out :P

Just makes it clicky
