Valve's Steam Controller Now Has A Later Shipping Date

By - | Views: 13,419
All pre-orders should still be delivered on time, but if you order them from now you won't get your Steam Controller until December.

Sounds like their demand was a bit higher than they expected! Taken from the Steam store page for the Steam Controller:
QuoteEstimated Delivery: December 2nd - December 9th

* The estimated delivery date is for new pre-purchases on Steam. If you have an existing pre-order from before Oct 19th, you will receive your Steam Controller on Nov 10th.

I spoke to "GAME" recently where my pre-order was done through, and they didn't really make me feel very secure about when I would get mine. I'm still hoping mine does arrive on November 10th to give you guys my thoughts on it, but who knows. My order was done months ago, so I do hope GAME pull through for me.

Thanks for letting me know Kallestofeles. Article taken from

Xbox Elite controller looks a bit crap, to be honest, and the price is ridiculous.

Interesting. I guess after the initial reactions from the early batch demand has increased. I really can't wait to get mine on 10th.

Gonna wait to try my brothers and then I'll purchase 1-4 for me and my waifu. Getting ready for co-op games with full-controller support to do some LANs with my friends - I can't wait!

The Alienware Steam Machine at 449$ is also out of stock until December.
