Valve issued a video demonstrating its Steam Controller today. The game pad, which features two track pads in lieu of joysticks, is used for its series of Steam Machines, announced in September.

Looks good.

Current controllers are SO bad the console versions of FPS games have to add several auto-aim and aim assisting mechanisms to even make the games playable.


Uh, for casual players perhaps, but I don't use any aim assist on my Xbox 360 games - where possible, I turn them off. If it's not possible, I'm frustrated by them because they screw up my aim.

That's why I said I feel playing with a mouse is like cheating - there's just no challenge involved for me. L4D on expert on theXbox requires effort - on the PC, it's really just a point and click adventure.

I'm not saying one is better than the other - it's just that I like my games to be challenging, and mouse/keyboard suck all the challenge out of FPS games for me.
