Rumor: Steam Controller Could Include an Analog Stick

on July 23, 2014 10:57 PM

An image of what seems to be an updated Steam Controller iteration was recently found in the latest Steam client beta thanks to SteamDB and a user on the Facepunch forums. While this new design hasn’t been officially confirmed by Valve, the design shows the controller went through some changes to resemble your traditional controller even more, displaying an analog stick on the left-hand side, which replaces the four directional buttons previously shown in older versions.

It also seems to retain the two circular touch pads, four lettered buttons, bumpers and triggers, and other features shown in previous versions. We’ll keep you updated as soon as Valve confirms this updated design.
