Steam Controller Drops Touchscreen

It looks like Valve is doing away with the touchscreen on its Steam Controller in favor of buttons. Kind of a bummer, I think the touchscreen went well with the overall concept of the new controller.

It turns out that Valve's hardware beta was an actual beta: the Steam Controller is dropping its touchscreen and adding some physical buttons before going up for sale via Steam and at retail later this year. It's unclear exactly where the buttons will be, but we're seeing reports that they'll approximate a d-pad and the standard A/B/X/Y configuration.
