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'm starting to think there are no decent gamepads out there. The Steam Controller was too weird, My Xbone Elite controller had its rubber grips fall off, and I'm on my third PS4 controller because the left stick always starts uncorrectably drifting after a year or so.

Have you tried cleaning out the PS4 sticks? I had two start acting up within one year of owning the console, the second faster and even worse than the first... There are tutorial vids on YouTube for how to open them up, then you gotta crack open the little sensors attached to the sides of the analog mechanism and wipe down everything in there with rubbing alcohol or whatever. It's 15-20 minutes of delicate work if you do both sticks on one controller, but after that, the drift is completely gone. Way better than shelling out $50 again.
