Valve has filed a patent that mentions a new Steam controller with swappable parts. Check out the patent and an early image of it.
No controller looks better than duelsense 5
I think thats the name of a remote vibrator ;)
So are you using it for your VJ?
what is a VJ?
Come on do I really spell it out, it a bit in apporiate here lol
the only VJ i know is a DJ for videos.
It's just called the dualsense, no number.
Look isn’t always everything. Some people prefer comfort and usability over look. Plus, people have different hand sizes, so there is always a market for big and bulky controllers. @Iretrouk To me the Dualsense looks very comfortable to use, but there are always other people that think otherwise and would prefer something like this Steam controller and find this controller more comfortable.
You dont think the new controller looks comfortable and usable?
Ahh ok cool, get what you mean now👍
eh each to their own. I love the design of the Dualsense but that's cause it's taking inspiration from what's on the market but improving on it.
Yeah, mainly the dualshock 4
Come on man.This isn't about the dualsense.
That sounds like a superhero's ability. XD
It actually does lol.
Dualsense (there's no 5) looks tacky as hell in its current colours
That is good. The Steam Controller is great for games that are normally not that good to be played on a controller. Aiming is much better with the touch pad than with a analog and the dual touch-pad make RTS and other management games much more playable. However when it comes to other genres like third person action games or platformers. This controller is just bad. So having the option of swapping the touch pads to a simple cross shaped D-pad or another analog stick would likely make it the most versatile controller out there. But if they indeed make a second generation with such improvements. I hope that they also improve the build quality of the unit. It's solid enough as it is, but the glossy plastic feels cheap when put side by side to the XOne's Controller or the DS4.
Imagine if we can use this on consoles. Would make playing MOBAs easier. Well, there are KBM but I don't like sitting on a desk. :D
Cool I’ll pick up the V2 when it comes out
Has anyone used the steam controller yet? Was thinking of buying one for my daughters laptop but wasnt sure about them, how does it feel compared to the xbox and ps pads?
I own one. Had for it for years. It's decent. Highly customizable binds. Good control with FPS, RTS, MOBAs and Racing. Best way to emulate a keyboard and mouse interface from a controller design, and for older games like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series it's the only feasible way to play those games without an actual keyboard and mouse. It does have a learning curve however, but in the hands it's comfortable.
Thank you very much for the info, I appreciate it, I have been thinking of getting into pc gaming proper(got my daughter a gaming laptop for christmas and now I want one lol) the steam controllers look cool to me.
If this is true concept valve can blow away competition With one simple thing. Replace parts.

Could be interesting. Took time to get used to, but I loved the versatility of it, and became my go to for a number of games.
Anybody know whether the first one they came out woth was a success? Im assuming yes, seeing as they want to release another one?
Hard to tell. They pulled it and Steam link off storefronts sometime last year. I took that as the hardware just wasn't selling anymore, and the niche audience for something like it was filled. Now it seems like they're releasing a more intricate 2.0. So it either did well enough to justify a re-release, or they spent more time on a redesign, in hopes this will prove more popular. Either way, I hope it comes to market, and would likely pick one up. The original was a solid controller, once you got around the the initial learning curve of it.
I remember buying the original for a discounted price and got it 40 days before release. Tried it for about 30 mins and sold it next day for double the cost I paid. Was a terrible design.
