Valve has revealed the final cog in its plan to expand the Steam Universe- a brand-new controller designed for PC gaming that may just be the most significant development for the future of PC gaming. Branded the ‘Steam Controller’, the new input device appears similar to a console controller but has a much different method of operation that involves the use of two touchpads and a touchscreen.
According to Valve, the controller has been designed to replicate the precision and operation afforded by a keyboard mouse combination, still the preferred choice of input for most PC gamers. However, keeping in mind its plan to expand Steam (and PC gaming) into the living room, Valve designed the new controller to serve as an alternative to those orthodox PC controllers while still trying to emulate the portability and comfort of the Xbox and Playstation controllers. Valve claims that the new controller offers “a vastly superior control scheme” (as compared to traditional console controllers), with higher resolution and fidelity while keeping latency low.
