Valve Reveal Latest Innovations at Steam Dev Days

Steam Dev Days certainly had some interesting developments this week, as a new prototype HTC Vive controller was shown off. The new controller has a “grip control” that may be suited to haptic feedback, allowing you to grab objects physically rather than my pushing a button. Aside from the VR developments, Steam is breaking out more controller support, with the addition of the PlayStation’s DualShock 4 controller.

“Believe it or not, when you use the PS4 Controller through the Steam API, it’s exactly the same as a Steam Controller,” Bellinghausen said. “You make the exact same API calls, you only get actions, not inputs, and the Steam API takes care of everything.”


A nice deal with Samsung should also see Steam Link built into upcoming Samsung TVs, making streaming your PC games to the living that much easier! While TF2 programmer Joe Ludwig also commented that VR would be “all-in” for Valve, with support for SteamOS, OSX and Linux, as well as Windows, obviously.
