Steam is slowly assimilating every control method into its ever-expanding core, and it’s just as well. While Xbox controllers were king on PC in terms of ease of use, the DualShock 4 has slowly been climbing the ranks.
During its “Steam Dev Days” conference in Seattle, Valve also unveiled some more advancements for DualShock users. Soon you can basically customize it as heavily as a Steam controller by way of the Steam API, which includes gyro and touchpad adjustments. Based on the mockup, it looks really sleek.
I still prefer the Xbox One pad for basically everything but fighting games and precision platformers, but this is a nice concession if you happen to like symmetrical analog sticks.
