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.

It's is kind of sad to see them go. It's a great device that can be configured to do pretty much anything. I pre-ordered one after injuring my arm and couldn't use a mouse for a while. I was tired of typical games I could play with the Xbox 360 controller I already had, so I went ahead and pre-ordered it. It works great with turn-based strategy games and isometric RPGs. It was pretty rough in the early days, you had to use the Steam client beta, it only worked in big picture mode, and at times they would update something that broke your configs. All of that has been fixed now.

It was nice to sit back in my chair to play those games instead of hunched over a keyboard and mouse. I thought I'd continue to use it for those games once I healed up, but I didn't. It's highly customizable and it can take a while to set up, so I just end up playing with mouse and keyboard.

Though I liked it, I gave it a negative review (because neutral reviews aren't a thing) and I don't think I ever updated it. I might pick up another one just to have in case nothing else like it ever comes out and I find myself in a situation where I can't use a mouse for a while to play games.
