It's the solution to a problem nobody has. If people want speed and precision they will still use the superior mouse, and if people want comfort and couchplay they will use the gamepads they already own. This is gonna be a failure.

many people don't care much about the precision a mouse has to offer and many games are not very playable with standard controllers. This controller offers a great solution to the problems with standard analog sticks.

Anyone playing CS with that steam controller would get absolutely wrecked.

It's useless for anything that requires speed and precision.

It might be good for things like Civ 5 though


CS:GO has a option to look for other controller using players.

I've heard that people take advantage of that so that they can dominate controller users :/

Not sure how true it is, though.

The problem is you're claiming you can't have speed and precision with couchplay. That's what Steam is trying to prove wrong. They don't want you to have to choose "either or" like you're doing. So you yourself just perfectly stated exactly *why* they made this controller.

If that video is any indication, you can't. I'm sorry, the guy playing portal would get owned hard in any competitive shooter with that responsiveness
