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.

Civilization should be played like this since CIV1: sitting on the throne in front of 40'' TV. ;)

i dont even have a tv in my bathroom!

and yes you get it! valve is trying to provide a controller that still works as a gamepad but allows more crossover into some traditional PC games, allowing them to be played comfortably on a couch, not huddled over a computer desk.

That's unusual. You can always open door and use a mirror to see TV set.
