Steam Controller $5.00

Postby Err » Tue Nov 26, 2019 8:00 pm

I bought one even though I don't need another controller.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/353370/Steam_Controller/

With shipping and tax, it came to 13.93. They also have the carrying case for $2 plus shipping.

Man, I'm still on a mouse for all these years for games. Moving to something like that would take me months to get use to.

It's OK for some stuff. Been using it for Elite Dangerous since I dont have a HOTAS and it's worked well for me there. Couple other games it does ok. For 13 bucks shipped it's OK.

WTH for that price, I'll try it out for flying games.

FYI: They're being discontinued, that's why the great price.

I'd always wanted to try one but couldn't rationalize spending another $40 on a controller when I already had a PS4 Dualshock, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Pro.

I bought 2 controllers and 2 cases. I'm going to give one to my daughter for Christmas.

Since Valve is discontinuing these, I wonder if they are a version 2 in the works to work better with their VR?

They were out of cases when I ordered, but I bought two controllers.

I'm liking it. It has a better feel in car games like Wreckfest and GTA online than my old Xbox controller (I still use mouse & keyboard outside of vehicles in GTA).

Holy crap! I've been using my Steam controller since I bought it back in December, and completely forgot to recharge it since then. It's run FIVE MONTHS on one charge. Finally died today.

BWAHAHAH! I am an idiot! I didn't remember it used alkalines. I thought it was rechargeable.

I plugged it into the gaming PC direct via USB cable to get it working last night, and then left it connected to a USB charger overnight, and then this morning I'm wondering why it's still dead. LOL!
