Got an email from Valve about 10 mins ago and figured some of you here may be interested. 

Hi.

 

Just a heads up that, for a limited time, the Steam Controller and Steam Link are 30% off at Steam and participating retailers. This comes along with the updates discussed in the blog posted late yesterday.

 

Cheers



Are any of you here using the Steam Controller / Link? If so are they worth it in your opinion?

    I've got the steam controller, I got it a while back in fact. It works amazingly well, and they keep adding stuff to it, like binding sets. TF2 is the only game to natively have steam controller support as far as I know; TTS makes a valiant effort though.

    It's a very delicate device though, not in its construction, it's a veritable beast and some people can't grasp it (literally), but it is sensitive equipment, the gyro in particular, which can be used to replicate a steering wheel.

    It's definitely worth it if you ever wanted a controller or prefer controllers for some games, or wanted to play a game with a controller when there isn't support for one for any reason, e.g. Avencast Academy has more binds than a 360 controller has buttons, but you can mode shift the touch pads for even more binds and use bind sets for exponential more binds.

    Plus it support non-steam games, I'm currently playing Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, which I only have on uPlay, but works just as well with the steam controller by adding the executable as a shortcut. This also works for GOG games and possibly Origin (I haven't really tried that yet), as well as emulators (like dolphin).

    Been wanting the Steam Controller, wish I knew this sale was coming before buying another 360 controller for the fiance to use. Oh well, there's always a later date and future sales.

    I would definetly buy a Steam Controller if I had any games that I play regulary that fully support it. Like the tilting and the flux stuff is pretty cool.

    But since I only play Rocket League with a controller my 6 year old 20$ logitech trash controller does its job.

    Funny story, I got Rocket League for free with my steam controller. I also got Portal 2 with it, which is now collecting dust in my inventory, but if those two games were counted within the price, I'd have gotten my steam controller for just a tenner. This deal since passed and now they have one with a discount for Civ6.

    Unlike Portal 2, Portal doesn't have controller support, at all, but I did manage to play it all the way through with the controller (getting all the radios in the process while doing it). But like I said, there's only TF2 that actually supports the Steam Controller, the others are XInput emulation and M+KB bindings.
