Out of all of the recent announcements made by Valve, the one that really got me interested was their new controller which would be compatible with either PCs or the upcoming Steam Machines. The video below shows the new pad in action with several games including Civilization V and Portal 2.
I personally think that it all looks very promising. Its use with strategy games in particular looked better than I was expecting. One of the features of the pad that seems interesting is the way that you are able to split each of the two track-pads into different segments, meaning that you can click different parts of each one to achieve different things.
What are your thoughts on this?
