steam_controllerLove it or hate it, you are interested in some level. The design itself is not bad and have this futuristic feel although it kind of looks like a Xbox One controller in some way. Only one Analog Stick? Who thought that its a great idea needs to be fired! The track pad thing needs to be played with before giving judgment so no comment there although I feel it will fail.

All in all, the controller looks amazing but the missing stick is a deal breaker to me. I just hope that games will continue to support both 360 pad and this one.
