Following SteamOS and Steam Machines, Steam Controller was introduced — a wireless gamepad with two trackpads, a touch screen and 16 buttons. The gadget looks, frankly, unusual. You can't find the usual analog joysticks on it, but Valve decided to go the other way.

Even fans of classics that do not support the controller will be able to play comfortably using Steam Controller. The developers were able to outwit the old games that think you use a keyboard and mouse.

The touch screen can be used for various purposes: to display useful information, a game map and perform any programmed actions. The entire surface of the controller is literally littered with tactile sensors that not only vibrate, but also reproduce sounds. Simultaneously with the release of Steam Machines, Valve will release the Steam Controller API. Game developers will get it for free. Valve will also send the beta version of Steam Controller to the first 300 Steam Machines users free of charge. Well, it remains only to wait for the end of beta testing and the release of new products to the market. I think Valve was able to make a small revolution in the gaming world, and we will soon find out what will come of it.
