New Vive Controller and PS4 Controller Coming to Steam

This tweet has photos of a new Vive controller Valve is showing off at their Dev Days. Kotaku has word from Valve that these are still evaluating prototypes, and don't yet have answers for the "good questions" about pricing, availability, or possible discounts for owners of the old controllers. Also, Gamasutra recaps more news from Valve's Steam Dev Days where Jeff Bellinghausen from the Steam Controller team at Valve gave a talk about controllers. Word is they are adding native support for PS4 controllers in an upcoming update:

Some notable updates added “activators” that let players do things like assign an action to a long press of a button,”action sets” that let players define multiple configurations that they can cycle through on the fly, and on-screen radial menus that can map up to 20 different actions to a single pad.

Soon we will be shipping an update that adds full configurability to controllers other than the Steam Controller. This means that players can pair their PS4 controller directly to their PC and use all the configurability options available to the Steam Controller, including use of the PS4 touchpad and gyro.
