Abject failure. Anybody thought these we good?
Compared to the DS4 and Xbox One controller, it's a commercial failure. As a product, it shines. I love my Steam Controller and I'm saddened that they're discontinuing production on them. I can't buy them in Canada anymore and I'm not paying $100+ to some scalper on Amazon. When I play PC games, 90% of the time it's with my SC, the rest of the time with mouse/keyboard. I've played everything with it, including EQ and WoW. Hell there's a super complicated Star Citizen config for it which does everything, it's very impressive.
People like to hate on the controller because it dared to be different, but for people who learned to use it, it's hands down superior to every other controller out there. My wife has both an Xbox One and 360 controller, and I simply won't use them since the SC does everything better. Well, arguably not twin-stick shooters, but then I have my wife's controllers for those, not that I play them anyway. And so what if it doesn't do twin-stick shooters well - a traditional controller won't play RTS games particularly well either!
