Valve announces the Steam Controller

Part 3 of the Steam living room announcements is a controller.

Part 3 of the Steam living room announcements is a controller.

It looks a little weird...

Steam Controller

The controller features two touch pads and a center touchscreen plus the usual shoulder and trigger buttons and some oddly placed face buttons. There are also two paddle buttons on the back. 

The most prominent elements of the Steam controller are its two circular trackpads. Driven by the player’s thumbs, each one has a high-resolution trackpad as its base. It is also clickable, allowing the entire surface to act as a button. The trackpads allow far higher fidelity input than has previously been possible with traditional handheld controllers. Steam gamers, who are used to the input associated with PCs, will appreciate that the Steam Controller’s resolution approaches that of a desktop mouse.

Whole genres of games that were previously only playable with a keyboard and mouse are now accessible from the sofa. RTS games. Casual, cursor-driven games. Strategy games. 4x space exploration games. A huge variety of indie games. Simulation titles. And of course, Euro Truck Simulator 2.

In addition, games like first-person shooters that are designed around precise aiming within a large visual field now benefit from the trackpads’ high resolution and absolute position control.

You can draw your own conclusions as to what games will be good with that controller, but until we get hands on with it, it will be impossible to know for sure.

In the meantime, an Xbox 360 controller is still the best PC gamepad if you aren't playing keyboard/mouse. And, of course, if you're playing a fighting game, you'll still want a fightstick.



Valve announces SteamOS for your living room.

By: BatRastered Sep 23, 2013 | 1 Comments

Having released Big Picture mode earlier, now the software maker wants to move you off windows entirely for gaming.

Now you can build a machine to play the Steam games of the future without having to have a full blown windows installation (not to mention it's free).

As we’ve been working on bringing Steam to the living room, we’ve come to the conclusion that the
environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself.

SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen.
It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines.

Of course, most games don't run on Linux, so Valve has some work to do convincing partners to make their games compatible. Probably by some sort of dev kit? More info is coming later this week, this is the first of three announcements scheduled throughout the week. See the countdown here. Could be bad news for Microsoft with all those Win8 haters out there... gaming being one of the main things that keeps people on Windows.
