R.I.P.: Steam Controller

Noticing the Steam Controller is on sale for just five bucks in the Steam Autumn Sale, The Verge got in touch with Valve to learn the once-hyped controllers are being discontinued. There is no further explanation other than their statement that "Valve confirms that this is the last batch of these gamepads that will ever be made." They also note that shipping on these to most places will cost more than the controller itself, saying shipping to the continental U.S. looks like it's $8.00, making the total delivered cost of one of these $13.00.

i bought a couple of the steam links also when they were on sale. The charger alone was worth it, as its a perfect match for the original PSP 1000 models (only ones i have), and is a far better charger than any of the crappy ones you can buy for it nowadays.

The controller on the other hand.. not even worth $5. Worst latency in any modern controller since the DS3. Even worse than it in some regards, and just terrible at so many genres and games I love, like classic console games/emulation. If I were going to lug a controller around anywhere to use for convenience, it would have to work with those games at least somewhat decently, and this turd does not pass that basic benchmark like pretty much every other major controller does.
