 "While its proprietary drivers are reasonable - by Linux proprietary driver standards - their reluctance to help the community prompted Linux creator Linus Torvalds to call them "single worst company" that developers could work with."


Ouch.

I was hoping for something more. We already knew they were working with multiple manufacturers to bring various steam boxes to market, we also knew they would have their own steam box. This is more or less the announcement of the open beta registration.

Yeah, I was pretty underwhelmed about it too. Thought they would at least show a pic of their Steambox+specs.

Wow, that controller is something new. Just wow, no one had the idea before. The PS4 and Boner controller now look like from the past century.

Kills any interest I had in the Steambox.
I hated the touch things for tablets/Ipads/phones/etc & I certainly don't want it on a controller.

Honestly Imo the controller is weird with those touch areas. And my experience with touch areas for gaming so far wasnt great.

Tried SNES and Sega Mega Drive emulators on the iphone and some iphone native games that "emulated" the analog stick. The controls sucked to be honest. A controller needs physical buttons/analog sticks period. Why didnt they make ABXY buttons touch buttons as well if theyre so smart?

it looks like it has a display too. Now that might be not bad at all, but in most cases its unnecessary. it also looks like they have buttons on the back, like those modded overpriced xbox controllers.

No doubt it may be better than everything I've tried. However my expectations aren't high at all as I can't stand playing games w/touchpads/touchscreens, so I don't expect the controller to be any different. I would love for them to prove me wrong.
