Steam reveals the Steam Controller, capping off a week of reveals
Valve has revealed this week's final Steam announcement The Steam controller. Valve said they wanted to create an input device to bridge the gap between the desk and the living room. The result, is a device that looks like something you're supposed to plug your iPod into...
Joking aside, the controller features dual clickable track-pads with built in Haptic feedback, a high-resolution touch screen and sixteen buttons including two on the back. In addition, Valve says the controller will be fully hackable, and they look forward to community development.
Be careful Valve, if Microsoft has taught us anything its that trying to change too much too quickly is met with extreme backlash. Well, I'm off to sling the Steam Controller over my shoulder and blast MC hammer throughout the neighborhood.
My Xperia Play already got two mouse touch pads AND a D-pad.
looks really awkward, but oh well the n64 controller looks awkward and plays alright so might as well give this one a chance
So... no D-pad?
Just for looking this controler i can say this is the controler i hate the most.The one i hated the most was the Wii mote,but in general i hate motion controler, really hate alot.And this just top inn my hate chart.
Weird I'll admit, but I'm actually rather intrigued by it. I'd loved to try it out first before I pass my final judgement. The only problem I see is the way the grips have those sharp corners on the front as they dip down toward the middle. That looks uncomfortable to hold. A smoother corner would probably be nicer to grip.
The face button layout looks practical...
I curious about it. Who knows, maybe this is the controller we've all been waiting for without knowing it.
Now if only I could just use that for Steam now.
interesting a new controller that is the first new controller in this gen and i think it may work only if i could hold it and idk iv avgn will be good to play wit taht
I really hated this controler design.It looks way to weird not in favor of the acctual controller.Will prob make alienated.
no Dpad? not even joystick? a fucking touch pad? FUCK NO! nothing worse than a clumsy slippery ass touch screen or pad to piss u off when ur trying to text message and not crash the car at the same time because fuck we all do it but it was never so hard when the there where actuall buttons. Jesus Christ Marie.
Well.......its interesting and creative, I'll give them that. Looks comfortable I guess. The two touch pads seem really weird to me but........I kinda want to play with it.
