"Here's a quick look at some games being played with the prototype version of the Steam Controller -- the same version that we'll be shipping to 300 Steam users later this year. We'll post more demonstrations like this soon, including footage of some other game developers using the controller to play their own games."

In this awesome new video Valve shows off the new Steam Controller with Portal 2, Civilization 5, Counterstrike Go and Papers Please. The control of the games looks fluid and I like the varied nature of the games they are showing. The controller is pretty rough and is missing the middle display button, but it already seems very functional. In the video they mention that more of these videos will come out and they are wondering what games people would like to see played in the next video.

What kind of gameplay would you like to see on the next Steam Controller video? I am thinking Half-life 3, but you know that might not happen.

Wow. I was originally gonna try to get a PS4 for christmas, but I'm definitely thinking of getting a steam box or whatever they're called.

If there's any "next-gen" console out there, this is definitely it.

I agree. And they are calling them Steam Machines, with whomever makes them. I would love a gen 1 Steam Machine, but I may wait a bit to see how it all settles out.

Steam Controller? Pretty much right away.
