It appears that Valve has once again redesigned its Steam Controller, this time adding an analog stick on the left-hand side.

An image of this new design was pulled from the latest Steam beta client by SteamDB (via Engadget), and features a newly added thumbstick instead of the four directional buttons that were previously there. Personally I think it’s a good change that should help the controller feel less alien to users who are used to a more traditional design.

For those of you who haven’t been keeping track, the original Steam Controller design featured two massive track pads on either side of a touch screen. This design was scrapped in favor of a new design back in January that removed the touchpad, reduced the size of the track pads, and added two sets of face buttons.

It’s unknown at the moment if this design will be the final one, or whether it will change again in the future.
