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've had a Steam Controller for a year or two... The customization is amazing....but so daunting that I'm not sure it's worth it. The layout is odd...but functional. The trackpads and gyro are fantastic and this is the only place where it shines. It's the only controller I've ever run across that you can play a first person game and it feel natural when you grow accustomed to the inputs.

All that said......since Steam already does fantastic controller integration, I pretty much only use a DualShock 4 from my PS4 for games. (edit : only for games best suited to a controller...Bastion, Dark Souls, etc..)
