(Watch Steam Controller in use)
Valve has made an official video that demonstrates Steam Controller.
Valve has recently posted a video that demonstrates how Steam Controller will be used. In the video plays engineer at Valve four different games. He begins with a first-person shooter Portal 2, before moving to Civilization V is a strategy game. The last two games are respectively Counter-Strike: Global Offense and indie game Papers, Please.
The controller seems to be very responsive and work right out of the box. None of the games they play are configured to work with Steam Controller. This means that in theory can play any game on Steam with this control.
Not directly new
This is not something new. There are several programs that allow you to use your controller to play a random PC games, regardless of manufacturer. An example of this is Xpadder.
Is whatever interesting to see how this develops. What do you think about Steam Controller? A gimmick by Valve, or a step in the right direction for the PC platform?
