whenever i start my ps 3 the controller is assigned as controller 2 and wont control the ps3 . i have to go to the ps3 settings to re assign it as controller 1 every time. why dosent it remember its controller 1 and work straight away upon starting the ps3.

I assume that you have already tried plugging it in to the other port.
If you have a 2nd controller try taking that out.

Make sure you turn the ps3 on with the controller you have assigned as controller 1.
If wireless,make sure it is fully charged.
Other than that i would take the controller back as it may be faulty.

How many controllers do you have?

They stay in the order they were assigned to the machine initially, at least mine do. They can be re-assigned during a session but revert back to normal.

Reason I know is I have two controllers and I actually have them stickered one & two. Yet when I assigned them to my PS3 I did "two" first, doh.

I can't bothered to swap stickers or reset my PS3.
