After teasing the Steam Controller for the last couple of years, with a few different iterations, Valve has finally introduced the Steam Controller. The company will be pushing out a very limited quantity of these drives on October 16 for those who pre-order now. The full release of the Steam Controller is November 10.
The video above is a good way of showing off what to expect from the Steam Controller, where Valve promises that it will be a blend of the traditional controller, and the prevision of a mouse. The front of the Steam Controller has two large circular control areas, and an analogue control stick. It also features twin haptic feedback reactors, too. Round back, we have trigger buttons with both analogue pull and a digital switch.
Valve is selling the Steam Controller for $49, with the promise of up to 80 hours of gameplay from a pair of AA batteries, and a 5-meter range from your PC.
