What does everyone think of the new Steambox controller?

Recommended Posts

Apparently this is the new design for the Steambox controller.

Not sure if I'm a fan of the concave design (I wonder how that feels ergonomically), but it's definitely interesting. I applaud Valve's aspirations for trying to come up with a completely different control scheme.

Well, the buttons certainly seem better placed, now.  The original buttons looked a little hard to get to for smaller hands, though of course it's a bit hard to tell without holding one myself.  Touch screen thing's a little silly, though; hopefully it won't drain on the battery too much.

It looks better and while I'm interested to try it, why would I choose this over keyboard and mouse?

Yea, there is a reason why I play PC and that to  headshot better. I don't think that controller can help me.

 

On another note, at least this look different from other controller. Have anyone seen photo of the leaked Amazon Controller? It looks like an Xbox.
