Proving you don’t need dual analog joysticks to be a success, Valve has sold over 500,000 Steam Controllers.
Valve’s ultra-configurable video game controller has been on the market for less than a year, but is already making a mark on the industry. Because of its unique design, the company has been able to improve the Steam Controller without need for additional hardware upgrades. Some of the updates to the controller since launch include the ability to reproduce the rumble effect of games using its Force Reators, control templates that can be mapped across multiple games, Steam VR support and more. In the near future, Valve even plans on implementing activators, which can assign actions to more complex inputs like double click or press-and-hold.
