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.

Steam Controller in Windows
I can not get the device to function as a gamepad in Windows.

Steam controller FAQ
Can I use a controller if I don’t have a Steam machine?
Yes. It’ll work very well with any version of Steam.

IGN.com
The Steam Controller is compatible with both Steam Machine and PCs running Steam. Though the controller can be used to play non-Steam games on PC, functionality is very limited.

IGN.com article
Without Steam, if you plug this into one of those devices and run some game that’s not part of Steam, you would only get the most basic functionality. It wouldn’t actually be very valuable as a controlling device.

“It would basically be a mouse with 16 buttons,” Coomer added.

Developed for PC Steam. Wink
