[The Verge] Pour one out for the Steam Controller, now on closeout sale for just $5 plus shipping

Yes, you can now buy the Steam Controller for just $5 plus shipping ($13 total for me), and Valve confirms that this is the last batch of these gamepads that will ever be made.

I've always said that shipping and not being on Amazon would kill this controller.

Bought four for the same total that would get me one before. They're sold out in my country.

No one cared when it was born, and no one will care once it's dead. Not sure why steam thought it's user base wanted a controller to begin with. I have an xbox controller for when I have to have it, seems stupid to buy any other controller as a pc gamer. Maybe they should look into making a couch friendly keyboard/keypad and mouse setup if they really want to dip their toes into gaming peripherals.

completely agree there. That segment is sparse, at best.

i had to lie, & send it somewhere else. weird.

I'm grabbing one for the lulz, & because I only have a DS4 atm. My last xbox controller bit the dust on the first fall.

major innovation point on couchboards - A REPLACEMENT MOUSEPAD!!!!!

Skup I was about to order an extra one for you and send it to you myself. Glad you snatched one up.

In a few years time they'll be saying how this was ahead of it's time. For now though at least they're designed with compatibility in mind. Not all of my steam games work as intended with my Xbox one controller.

Sparse indeed. How about this, show some love for the lefties! All they need to do is allow the keyboard tray to slide.

I went looking for one recently and found exactly zero.

you sound like one of my colleagues. He's old enough to not be a WASD gamer + is a lefty. He's freaking out right now as 99.99% of laptops have positioned the left arrow under some random button, and something about numpad changes.
last game I played like that was FF11 O.O!
