Valve's letting us design and make our own Steam Controllers

As much as I love my Steam Controller, it’s difficult to deny that, for a lot of people, the ergonomics of it are incredibly weird. The buttons are in strange places, the grips are big and chunky, and there’s a big ol&rsquo...   read

That weird ass Nintendo NX controller leak? Fake

If you approached the Hey Arnold!-head-shaped Nintendo NX controller leak with a pillar of salt, congratulations you correct, no-fun-having mother flubber. The "leak" was actually a fake drafted up for internet "lols" or what have you base...   read

Review: Pokken Controller

Nintendo's history with peripherals that only support several games is nothing new. Raise your hand if you had a massive Four Swords party with four GBAs and a GameCube! The same thing goes for the Pokkén Controller, recently re...   read

These new Xbox One controllers sure are slick

I've heard it's hard to use the Xbox One Elite Controller and go back to the system's still-good standard gamepads, but I wouldn't know. I haven't used one yet! I'm completely free to gawk at these new colors -- Copper Shadow and Dusk Shado...   read

Review: Hyperkin ProCube controller

When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use o...   read

Hyperkin's 'ProCube' controller is literally a Wii U Pro in the GameCube style

It's a shame that the official GameCube controller adapter for Wii U doesn't work for anything outside of Super Smash Bros., but Hyperkin is aiming to fix that problem with its own proprietary option. It's called the "ProCube" controller, a...   read

XCOM 2 will be compatible with the Steam Controller at launch

While playing a review copy of a game that may or may not rhyme with Frying Dwight, a pop-up appeared to announce that Firaxis and Valve are implementing Steam Controller support for XCOM 2. If you have one of them fancy doohickey's, you ca...   read

Make sweet, sweet, screeching music with the Steam Controller

There’s something really appealing about using things which sound just awful to make neat music. People have managed to get a tune out of disc drives, dot matrix printers, both together, and now the Steam Controller’s haptic fe...   read

Power A's Xbox One Star Wars controllers are nifty looking

Ever wonder how controllers are made? Valve has put out a fascinating behind-the-scenes video showing the hard-working Aperture robots (yes, really!) that assemble Steam Controllers. It lacks the minutia of something like How It's Made -- ...   read

Windows 7 now supports the Xbox One wireless controller adapter

The Xbox One controller is terrific enough that I've considered dropping $25 on one of those wireless adapters for PC so I can use it beyond just Xbox gaming. But I haven't. Not yet! I'm still on Windows 7, despite Microsoft's continual pro...   read

The Xbox One Elite controller will be in low supply this month

The more I use the Xbox One Elite controller, the more I'm stuck on it. It's been pretty great to me so far despite the insane $150 price tag, but it looks like people who own these things are going to be a bit more "elite" in other ways as...   read
