The final stretch to launch the Steam Machines approaches, anticipated Steam Controller from Value gives us a little bit to see about how this great device that promises to replace the mouse, keyboard and any other Gamepad in our routine is working with a new video game that covers all its capabilities.

The Steam Controller will be available from October 16, and Valve has opened the pre-purchases on Steam page, but this pre-order is only available for the US and the UK.

The price will be $ 50 and can be purchased through the company’s own shop, but not yet sure whether at some point will be available internationally. In our region surely come through importers like most things.
