Considering how some call Demon's Souls for the PlayStation 5 a demake, Demon's Souls for the PlayStation 3 is readily available.

Valve catches a break in the Steam Controller patent trial versus Ironburg

Quoting: MohandevirImo, the best controller I ever used and I still have a computer that I game on.
I concur completely. Two touch pads that won't drift in a day and age where all three console manufacturers have been sued over stick drift are invaluable. From Nintendo's Joy-Cons to Sony's DualSense to Microsoft's Elite Series 2, all have been involved in stick drift lawsuits. In Sony's case, they raised the price by 20$ and it drifts. In Microsoft's case, they sold it for close to 200$ and it drifts. How can one justify this?

Apart from the two excellent touch pads, the Steam Controller boasted dual stage triggers, back buttons that were not tied to another input on the controller, and a battery life of at least 80 hours although I have gotten over 100 hours. No other controller on the market compares in terms of battery life. The price was incredible too, considering how other controllers cost far more despite not having all these features.

Sales would be my guess, combined with mixed reviews and poor support.
Support in what sense? The beauty of the Steam Controller is that it did not need support from any company but Valve.

Likely a mixture of both. Very unfortunate. It is an excellent controller. Far ahead of its time.

I don't think it is.
I like my eswap Pro. Excellent controller, and ver comfortable to use.
I like that the parts are easily swappable. With all these controllers getting stick drift, one at least doesn't need to fiddle around too much when replacing the sticks on this controller.

Valve to lose $4 million for patent infringement with the Steam Controller

The back-paddle is the only reason I bought the steam controller, I went from bronze to diamond on Rocket League with these buttons ahah. But I'm too poor to buy the xbox elite pro2 controller
It isn't worth it anyway.

Quoting: DribbleondoIn this comment section: "It's corsair and the patent offices fault! Valve did nothing wrong!"

Patents like the one Corsair Gaming holds are legitimate because Paddles on a normal controller hadn't been done before, and it's pretty reasonable for them to patent that kind of design functionality. Patent fraud only really applies to stuff that is insanely generic, or impossible to make, neither of which qualifies this paddles patent. It's no different to patenting a specific controller design.

Valve are not your friends, please stop trying to blame literally everyone but the company doing the wrong.
Negatory. Back buttons have been done before. It is completely unreasonable to patent a "feature" like this that is so breathtakingly banal.

SCUF are not your friends. Please stop trying to blame literally everyone but the company doing the wrong.
