Valve discontinued the production of Steam Controller gamepads. The remaining controllers are sold at a 90% discount - for $5. This was reported by The Verge, citing company representatives.
Fans of the gamepad sadly took the news about the termination of the Steam Controller's production. With a small but dedicated community creating custom configurations for nearly every game under the sun, modding the controller itself, and even coming up with clever control schemes for people with disabilities and others for whom more traditional controllers aren't an option.
Other users noted the inconvenience when using the trackpads, which replaced the traditional joysticks.
Steam Controller introduced in 2013. A notable feature of the gamepad was the presence of two trackpads with tactile feedback. The controller emulates the keyboard and mouse, so it is used with old games.
