Redesigned Steam Controller Unveiled

Valve sends along an image of the redesigned Steam Controller, showing an array of buttons in the area formerly occupied by the touch screen display. They say they will be giving hands on demonstrations of this at the upcoming Game Developers Conference.

Most intuitive and performance oriented design would be 2 analogs + 1 d-pad on front. 2 analog triggers on top, then one button for each of the remaining 6 fingers placed ergonomically under the pad, 3 on each side.

And maybe a start and select button or something on top.

I still wonder why they never made such an obviously superior design yet. Probably fearing backlash over breaking away from traditional less intuitive, but more widely practiced with, diamond shaped 4 button groups on top.

Having played with a Gravis X-terminator back then, I must say, the buttons on the underside were a godsend...
