It seems that Valve has redesigned the Steam Controller once again.
A user on Facepunch’s forums was digging through a Steam client beta and stumbled across what appears to be a new design for Valve’s gamepad.
This new one features an analogue stick on the left hand side in place of a D-pad.
For those keeping count this is the fourth time that Valve has redesigned the Steam Controller.
The first design featured two trackpads, a touchscreen and little else. The second – unveiled earlier this year – had the aforementioned trackpads, with the addition of eight face buttons and ditched the touchpad. A third design changed four of the face buttons to Xbox-style X, A, B and Y inputs.
Earlier this year Valve revealed that further development on its controller had pushed its Steam Machines back to a 2015 release.
