Valve's Robin Walker shows you what it's like to use the Steam Controller

Phil Iwaniuk:

"Gosh, I'm glad I'm not in charge of designing the Steam Controller and making sure it works just as well with mouse-focused RTS titles as it does with shooters. And racers. And MOBAs. And those suspect anime titles. Christ, to have to head a project that ensures adequate haptic control for those suspect anime titles."

freshslicepizza2144d ago

I got in on the early shipment having ordered 2 controllers and a Steam Link months ago. This was in my mail yesterday:

Any of you guys know how this controller would work outside of Steam, i'am thinking of Origin games for example FIFA, Battlefield etc etc.

Currently using a DS4 with DS4windows.

Don't think there's any official word but I expect it'll work as a 'joy pad' across the board. If not, you'll probably get unofficial drivers/Xbox pad emulators within a day or 2 of it launching.

You need to use Steam to change the software mapping (i.e, change the settings of the trackpads and buttons and stuff) but it will work on Origin games as well. It's designed to be work as a generic Xinput controller, meaning games outside of Steam will recognize it as a 360 controller.

* My PC plays Steam games + non-steam games + make music, and I get to use a 360 / XB1 controller.

PC cost me $500 in 2013.

^ How is the Steam Machine + this new controller any better for me than what I already have ?

Controller looks cool in my opinion.

Why can't we ever see any one play a game with it lol... it looks interesting, but I will wait it out and see what the general public thinks. I have a X1 controller connected to my PC and it works for controller games just fine.
