Steam (Hardware enthusiast badge)

#1 Post by Coffeedrinker » Sat Oct 12, 2013 10:48 am

Hi,

In an effort to get the badge and enter the beta - has anyone got a gamepad controller for a PC the I could borrow for an evening in the next week or so?

Cheers,
CD

I was interested in the same thing!

Did you see the steam controller demo, where they were playing Civ5, and using a dual mouse input thing on the thumb pad? And the absolute positioning thing for FPS?

I am SOLD!

If you still need to borrow one, just talk to someone with an XBox. A standard (or generic) USB XBox controller works perfectly. That's what I used.
I don't make everything dirty. I just show you the dirtiness you've been in denial about.

The one time I'm bummed that all my xbox controllers are the wireless ones...

Doh!
