    Valve to add Dualshock 4 configurability to Steam

    Since it came out in late 2013 we've considered the DualShock 4 the best controller for the PC, and as it turns out, Valve likes it quite a bit, too. As reported by Gamasutra, Jeff Bellinghausen of Valve and Lars Doucet of Level Up Labs announced at Steam Dev Days that Valve will soon release a Steam update "that adds full configurability to controllers other than the Steam controller," beginning with the DualShock 4.

    Using the PS4 controller through the Steam API is "exactly the same as a Steam Controller," they explained. "You make the exact same API calls, you only get actions, not inputs, and the Steam API takes care of everything."

    Guess it may be more of a case of what you are used to. I like the DS4 controller.

    I thought the same of the previous iterations (which meant me going as far as buying an adaptor to use my 360 pad on the PS3 ), but the DS4 is the first one that feels 'right' to me. Is it the analog sticks that you don't like?
