Last month, word started spreading that Steam would soon support DualShock 4 controllers. During a talk at Steam Dev Days, Jeff Bellinghausen from Valve talked about using other controllers with the Steam API. He noted that the DualShock 4 had a lot of overlapping functionality with the Steam Controller, including the gyro and touch pad, and talked about what a good fit the controller was for the Steam API.
That support was recently added to the Steam beta client. I’m a big fan of the DualShock 4, so I was excited to try it out.
