Late last month Valve announced the Steam Controller which is designed specifically to accommodate the wide range of control setups inherent to PC gaming.
Now the company has released a video demonstrating a prototype of the controller being used in four games including Portal 2, Civilisation V, Counterstrike: GO, and Papers, Please. Of particular interest is the precision which the controller’s dual track pads allow for, particularly in first-person shooters and mouse-based games such as Civilisation V. Another interesting moment in the demonstration occurs when the cursor in Papers, Please is controlled by blending the inputs from the left and right track pads.
Here’s the video:
