Steam Controller Drops Touchscreen

Product image

It turns out that Valve’s hardware beta was an actual beta: the Steam Controller is dropping its touchscreen and adding some physical buttons before going up for sale via Steam and at retail later this year. It’s unclear exactly where the buttons will be, but we’re seeing reports that they’ll approximate a d-pad and the standard A/B/X/Y configuration.

According to attendees tweeting from Valve’s Steam Dev Days conference, a “ghosting” mode is offered in replacement (which presumably shows a visualization on-screen of however your buttons are being mapped — that’s our best guess as information comes in). Valve’s also got an API to help devs integrate the Steam Controller into their games, which apparently supports up to 16 players at once.
