      Is the sound flipped or am I crazy?

      Nice. So how did it feel in Borderlands and City Skylines? It looked liked the sensitivity needed some tweaking in Borderlands to me.

      I would like to see a demo of it being used to play a much more keyboard/mouse intensive game like an MMO, Diablo III, or and RTS. I know it can be done. You can do that now with Pinnacle Profiler or Xpadder ( using an XBox 360 gamepad ) and profiles have been made for these types of games. But how much better could it be using a Steam Controller instead?

      if the analog is going to be used way more than the left dpad, why dont they swap it like the xbox controller

      bad decision (for my megan fox thumbs)

            I wouldn't attribute a shorter thumb to playing video games

              nah trust me, I pressed the dpad really hard as a kid. what happens is the snes dpad would breakdown and I would have to press it even harder. theres no other reason why my left thumb would be fat and shorter than my right thumb. I was basically raised by the snes, played it daily

                If that were remotely possible I would not have thumbs now. They would be gone.
