HA I already make 6 figures sitting at a desk masturbating all day. You can too! Just find employment with the Federal Government like me! Then you too can ride the clock all day and never actually do TOO much work, all the while receiving promotions and bonuses for meeting expectations.
Like the PSP, the analog stick is on the wrong side. I'm still super concerned about using the touchpads for shooters. Maybe the concave surface will help, but the lack of tactile feedback is what kills touchscreen controls for me. Of course, i could be totally wrong.
The Steam controller still has the two touchpads which were designed to make games that use a mouse normally work better like CIV5 etc.
Also, I think it's better to spend a long time to get it right. I can't say much as I've never tried it. It seems weird, on the other hand you may get better control with the touchpads so we'll just wait and see.
