Valve’s Finalized Steam Controller is Still Weird


Valve’s Steam Controller was finally unveiled in its production form and like its previous iterations, it’s still pretty weird looking. It has some elements of a regular console controller, but also many elements that make it unique. There are two touchpads on the front, with the right one that emulates a trackball. There’s also an analog stick, 4 face buttons, and shoulder buttons and triggers. You’ll also find additional buttons on the rear of the controller which I assume can be programmable. All of this I assume is so you can have the convenience of multiple buttons like on a keyboard and mouse setup, but with the convenience of a controller.

The Steam Controller will be available in November along with the various different models of Steam Machines coming out from Valve’s hardware partners. The Steam Controller is priced at $49.99.
