Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Valve has announced that they will release their own gaming console called SteamBox (or the Steam Machine), running SteamOS, a new Linux system created by them. For now, we only know the possible hardware specifications of the Steam Machine and how the Steam Controller would look like.
The Steam Controller will be compatible with both, the Steam Machines and PCs.
Valve has demoed the Steam Controller’s usage in the following games: Portal 2, Civilization V and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Personally, I would buy the Steam Controller just to play Counter Strike with it.
