Valve demoes the Steam Controller
Despite the numerous “OH GOD WHY” reactions when Valve first unveiled their controller for the upcoming Steam OS (and the steambox iterations), I was looking forward as to how Valve will tackle a the control problem on the PC space. In a word, impressive.
Valve’s demo video below shows Portal 2, Civilization V, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. being played using the dual trackpads.
Valve says the controller will be user-mappable so while it’s not a definite replacement to the mouse and keyboard, it’s impressive to see how well it can be adapted to which control scheme you’re more comfortable with (WASD + mouse or console-style, dual sticks).Tags: Steam, Steam Controller, Valve
