This is just beta support. While the PS5 controller certainly looks interesting I wouldn't buy one until there is a black or darker color available anyway. Perhaps more importantly, DualSense support is being added to DS4Windows too: https://github.com/Ryochan7/DS4Windows/releases

Do any games on Steam support this? Or is this a "buy in three years from now" kind of thing?

Steam Input Api makes it transparent.. the game doesn't know what you have unless it, well, knows. It basically means you can use PS5 controller and have it act like a standard controller in games that do NOT support PS5 controllers.

Seems neither you or the OP bothered to read. This isn't just allowing it to be used as a standard controller. They are touting full functionality in any game that already supports the same functions as the steam controller and clearly any PS ports on steam. They are basically the same controller with a different shell.

As for the OP, they literally list 3 games it already works in.

You are right, and that is a major point in favor of a PS5 controller actually...

fantastic. It's nice to live in a time where the pc can no longer be ignored by these companies. And kudos to valve for getting on it. Always love the mouse n kb, and i also have a fondness for sitting my butt on a soft couch with a quality controller. Cheers.

What are you even talking about? What about this says pc was ignored by anyone? Steam implemented ps4 support before windows did. If anything is being ignored it's Sony console controller support by Microsoft.
