Valve demos the Steam Controller on Portal 2, Civ V and more

 
Many PC gamers are always on the look out to improve their controller functionality, or to upgrade their gear, so when Valve announced a new controller everyone took notice. The problem is, it’s a very forward-thinking design, and that brings naysayers and doubters, and Valve is hoping to set things straight with a new series of videos that will show how the controller is designed and how it is coming along.
 
The first controller video was released by Valve earlier today, and shows the gamepad’s functions and unique design choices working with games like Portal 2, Civilization V, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
 
This isn’t the finished product, but things seem to be running rather smoothly at this point. This version of the controller will be sent to lucky Steam Machine beta participants. If you are lucky, you may get yours later this year.
