An awesome milestone for such an interesting device! Valve have stated in an update that the Steam Controller has sold over half a million units!

QuoteWe’re excited to announce that over half a million Steam Controllers have been sold. With every controller that comes online we get the opportunity to get more feedback on how to make the Steam Controller even better.


I think it really is an excellent device and I've had lots of fun with it. I actually own two of them for when others come around to play together and love it.

I am keen to see what Valve do with them in future.

See the official update here.

They have put the Steam Controller on sale now too, go grab one! Awesome price.

I wonder how many of those are Linux users?

It looks good, Im a bit tempted to buy one of those, but I just want to connect and enjoy, not having to waste my time making it to work or whatever

LinasI wonder how many of those are Linux users?
0.84% of 500000 = 4200, * $50 = $210000 from linux users. It's just a statistic based on the steam survey

More specifically, I wonder how many of them are attached to Steam Machines, which do not show in the hardware survey?
I wonder if Valve are actually playing their cards fairly close to their vest.

I have one, but most of my games don't work with it (or work poorly).
For instance, Broforce just doesn't work (but Xbox360 pad does work).

Also, TF2 still displays the keyboard shortcuts although I have the SteamController plugged in. It isn't really easy to learn games this way.

Do you have the same problems?

It's a nice controller but I'll wait for a the next version of it. It seems still under development ATM.
Xpander 2 June 2016 at 6:29 pm UTC
i have bought 2 of them
im not a controller person but i really like steam controller. i can control my desktop from distance which is super nice. also good for some local-coop gaming from the couch

edit: haven't had issues with the controller not working, but then again, i only play local-coop games like Battleblock theater, Never alone, Gang beasts and similar with them.

i use keyboard+mouse for the rest of the games and/or wheel for racing

Did you update the firmware and start the game from big picture mode?
