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.

This whole project is a waste of time, effort, and money. Give it up already and spend the resources elsewhere.
Valve isn't beholden to shareholders - it is free to spend money as it sees fit. Personally I think this is a great move and I look forward to getting hold of one of these. More importantly, it's critical to Valve's move into the console market with Steam Machines.

From my perspective I'd agree that a d-pad would be the more logical choice. The touchscreen is neither here-nor-there - it could be a good idea but I can certainly understand why it was dropped; cost was probably a factor.

Price is going to be critical with this. Hopefully it won't end up costing 50 like the PS4 controller, though I'm happy to buy it regardless.
