The most important thing about the Steam Controller is its support possibility and news that the small handheld device could support DotA 2 does fill us with a certain amount of confidence. What is so great about this is the fact that this controller has not been designed for games such as this.
If Valve are able to pull this off and get the Steam Controller to support games like DotA 2, then we have to wonder what other games will get the same sort of support?
Let’s not get too carried away though because DotA 2 is a very complex game, and it isn’t going to be an easy task, but it’s great to see that Valve is up to the challenge.
Having said that, having already seen complex games already being supported on the Steam Controller, we don’t expect it will be long before we will see its first hands-on, or a demo at least.
Okay, so we know that some fans will say they will be unable to play DotA 2 competitively with a controller, but it will be interesting to see what it would be like to play from the couch, so which camp are you in?
