Valve's Steam Box could be in a little trouble now, as the controller designer and hardware lead, Jeri Ellsworth, has been fired. The news comes from Ellsworth's Twitter account, where she tweeted "Yup. Got fired today. Time for new exciting projects."

Ellsworth was working on prototypes of controllers to use from your couch on the console we should hopefully soon expect from Valve. Should we expect delays from Valve on the Steam Box? I'm guessing not. Getting fired from Valve is pretty serious, as they have a very laid back working environment.
