I think it looks really unconventional, but if they offered pre orders today, I'd buy one. I'm really curious about it. There's no way it could replace controlling FPS, RTS, etc with a kb/m but I wouldn't mind forking money over to Valve. I need a new controller for my PC anyway.

...and didn't realize it was supposed to be a gamepad.

That's disgusting.

Only if it works with as many games as the 360 controller. I find it very unlikely, though.

They said it works with literally every single game on Steam.

I doubt that. San Andreas and Vice City simply fail to work with any controller I've tried.

The Steam Controller is designed to work with all the games on Steam: past, present, and future. Even the older titles in the catalog and the ones which were not built with controller support. (We’ve fooled those older games into thinking they’re being played with a keyboard and mouse, but we’ve designed a gamepad that’s nothing like either one of those devices.)

I'm not saying it's true, but it is what it is

logitech F310,510 and 710 controllers work okay with the classic GTA games.

I always pictured Louisville15 looking like that.
