It seems that Valve’s new Steam Controller has managed to touch on a new possible release date, targeting the October or November window. That would make it arrive well ahead of the frenzied holiday shopping season, which is a good thing if it carries over the good vibes. So far, this rumor hails from anonymous but “trusted” sources, where the Steam Controller is scheduled for a roll out later this October or November.
In fact, there does seem to be more than meets the eye for the Steam Controller, as the rumored release date might actually be the final piece of Valve’s plan prior to the first Steam Machines being put up for sale. Earlier in January this year, Valve did announce that 14 third party Steam Machines which ran on the Linux-based SteamOS, will roll out before 2014 is over, arriving in an array of hardware specifications and price points.
Not only that, it is also rumored that Valve hopes to see half a thousand games run natively on SteamOS by the time the first Steam Machines have gone on sale, which is a good number more than the existing 382 games. One ought to take note that the Steam Controller was first announced in September last year, before a video showing how it works rolled out a month after that. Following that, Valve redesigned the Steam Controller at the beginning of this year before unveiling its latest design just last month. Are you looking forward to see what the Steam Controller can do in its final iteration?
