Valve continues to tweak the design of its Steam Controller, moving on once more from the last prototype we saw in January.
This version — revealed over the weekend on Valve's blog — ditches the centralised touchscreen of previous prototypes, replacing it with a rather standard logo button with start and select buttons on either side.
An Xbox-style XABY configuration has also been added, along with a slightly unusual D-Pad. In all, the Steam Controller now looks a lot more like, well, a normal gamepad controller.
Valve is hand-building 10 of the new controllers for GDC attendees to playtest this week. Expect a hands-on look from CNET in the near future.
One thing is certainly clear — Valve is some way from finalising the design. We're looking forward to seeing the next prototype changes based on GDC feedback in the near future.
