Gamers patiently waiting for the launch of the highly anticipated Steam Controller will be pleased to know that it is now available to preorder both in the US and the UK priced at $50 for £40 respectively.
The Valve Steam Controller is equipped with dual trackpads for 1:1 absolute position, together with Haptic force actuators on both sides of the controller deliver precise, high fidelity vibrations measured in microseconds.
Other features include dual stage triggers that create a satisfying digital click and offer 10 degree of travel, a magnetic flux sensor, and a tactile switch. As well as gyroscope and accelerometer sensors enabling tilt-to-steer racing wheel gaming and other motion-controlled input. Valve explains :
“Experience a new level of precise control for your favorite games. The Steam Controller lets you play your entire collection of Steam games on your TV—even the ones designed without controller support in mind.
Feel the spin of a virtual trackball, the click of a scroll wheel, or the shot of a rifle. Every input, from the triggers to the trackpads, can offer haptic feedback to your fingertips, delivering vital, high-bandwidth, tactile feedback about speed, boundaries, thresholds, textures, or actions.”
