Report: Steam Controller launching this fall

Posted on April 14, 2014 AT 12:18pm

According to a PC Gamer report, Valve’s trackpad-based Steam Controller will launch in October or November of this year, paving the way for third-party manufacturers to release their Steam Machines in the same window.

The story cites a “trusted hardware source” with a connection to the Steam Machines initiative, who also revealed that the number of games natively playable on SteamOS—and by extension, all Linux variants—will reach “around 500″ by the end of 2014. That number currently sits at 382.

Earlier this year, Valve announced that they had redesigned the controller in response to public feedback, ditching a central touchscreen in favor of eight buttons, arranged into two diamond-shaped groups of four.
