Last week Valve announced three new products in the form of the SteamOS gaming operating system, Steam Machines and their new Valve Steam Controller.
Although no devices have been sent out by Valve for review at the present time, industrious Sketchfab user Mestaty has wasted no time creating a virtual 3D rendering of the Valve Steam Controller. Check it out after the jump and have a play rotating it to any angle.
Valve has designed their Steam Controller to work with all the games on Steam: past, present, and future. Even the older titles in the catalog and the ones which were not built with controller support. Valve explains:
“The Steam Controller is designed to work with all the games on Steam: past, present, and future. Even the older titles in the catalog and the ones which were not built with controller support. (We’ve fooled those older games into thinking they’re being played with a keyboard and mouse, but we’ve designed a gamepad that’s nothing like either one of those devices.)
In the center of the controller is touch-enabled surface, this one backed by a high-resolution screen. This surface, too, is critical to achieving the controller’s primary goal – supporting all games in the Steam catalog. The screen allows an infinite number of discrete actions to be made available to the player, without requiring an infinite number of physical buttons.”
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet for the Valve Steam controller, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.Filed Under: Gaming News, Technology News, Top News
