People may have had their doubts about the Steam controller after its announcement, but Valve thinks it can change those attitudes and has released a video of the controller in action.
The demonstration shows off the capabilities of the controller in traditionally gamepad inaccessible titles like Civilization V and Papers, Please, as well as more conventional titles like Portal 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The results are actually pretty impressive and have us itching to spend some quality time with the device as well as SteamOS and one of those mysterious Steam boxes. This is a pretty big gamble for Valve and it will be interesting to see how this plays out for the company. Let's just hope that they get around to making Half-Life 3 sometime soon.
