Stepping further away from the conceptual controller that it once was, Valve’s “Steam Controller” has undergone yet another redesign that makes the hardware slicker than ever.
Ditching out on the old, almost buttonless design, Valve is modifying its design to keep in line with a somewhat more conventional controller by adding a traditional joystick, four face buttons, a back and forward button and a menu button. The most prominent feature of the Steam Controller still stands as the circular pads are still prominent – though they now feature an indentation similar to a directional pad on the left panel.
What do you think about the new Steam Controller? Would you pick it up for your PC gaming experience, or will you stick with the Xbox 360 controller that Windows defaults to?
