Rounding out its set of living room-centric announcements this week, Steam Controller has been revealed by Valve, a 16-button, haptic-driven gamepad that Valve says is hackable, includes a touch screen, will feature sharable configurations, and has the ambitious goal of “supporting all games in the Steam catalog.” No price was announced for the controller, and it doesn’t appear to feature motion control.
In place of analog sticks, Steam Controller features two circular, clickable trackpads. Valve claims that PC gamers “will appreciate that the Steam Controller’s resolution approaches that of a desktop mouse,” and goes as far to promise that the controller makes games that aren’t traditionally suited to playing from the couch–RTSes, 4X games, simulations, and others–controller-friendly.
To compensate for the trackpads’ nature as less-tangible input devices than conventional analog sticks, Steam Controller includes “dual linear resonant actuators” that produce vibration. Valve adds that the controller can serve as a speaker. What seems to distinguish the Steam Controller’s square touch screen from other touch screens is click functionality. “Actions are not invoked by a simple touch, they instead require a click. This allows a player to touch the screen, browse available actions, and only then commit to the one they want,” Valve states in the announcement.
Although Valve was vague on how it plans to implement this policy, it emphasized the openness of the device. “We plan to make tools available that will enable users to participate in all aspects of the experience, from industrial design to electrical engineering. We can’t wait to see what you come up with,” Valve says.
We’ll await details on price, materials, and an opportunity to try Steam Controller ourselves soon. Snuck into the very end of the announcement is a mention of Steam Machines and SteamOS, the prototype of which Valve says it will share “detailed specs” of next week.
Admittedly this isn’t quite as big a story as it is for console types, but it’s still reassuring to hear that Call of Duty: Ghosts will once again feature dedicated servers, which returned to the series with Modern Warfare 3, after dropping them for the warry war game’s second Modern installment. “One thing I can say is we’re also doing dedicated servers on PC,” Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin told NowGamer, “so PC will be all dedicated servers, all of it. I don’t have details on how dedicated servers are going to work on PC, partly because we’re still in development and still working on all those features,” – but hey, good news is good news.
“Basically the overall reasoning behind it all is we’re always updating the games, even whether the community knows it or not,” Rubin explains in the interview, which might be a neat way to avoid the hideous reactions that more visible CoD patches have often invoked in the past.
“We’re making changes that they don’t know about because we want to see the changes happen without [affecting] peoples sort of free perceptions on what they think has happened, so sometimes we stealth in changes to design and see how they react.”
Obviously dedicated servers are useful in keeping multiplayer-focused games ticking over too, with Rubin stating that “dedicated servers is definitely one of those things that we think will help. It’s not the silver bullet, but I think it’s something that keeps in our philosophy of always trying to make the game experience better.” That and remote control dogs, obviously.

Ok so the latest installment of the CoD series is now available for pre-order through steam, Personally im actually pretty exited about this and actually looking forward to its release having decided to skip the last Black Ops II game that for me upon playing the free weekend through Steam felt more like an expansion pack than a whole new title, Call of Duty: Ghosts offers a new graphics engine, Improved A.I and something new to the series(i think), Dynamic maps, Sounds interesting hu? ……. Yeah exactly what i though.
Pre-Order and get the bonus multiplayer map “Free Fall” … A dynamic skyscraper wreckage thats continues to fall and change as the game plays out, This could get messy lol.
About the game:-
Call of Duty: Ghosts (also known as Call of Duty 10) is the tenth main Call of Duty game. It is being developed by Infinity Ward, Neversoft and Raven Software. Confirming that a Call of Duty game was in development on February 7, 2013 and was officially revealed on May 21, 2013 via a Reveal Trailer during the Xbox One reveal. It will be released on 5th November 2013 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC and will be a launch title on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Set to occur ten years after a devastating mass event, the United States of America is no longer a superpower, with its economy and government in ashes. The remainder of the nation’s Special Operations forces, the Ghosts, fight a newly emerged technologically-superior global power not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive.
Players are able to peek around cover while still being able to fire, automatically mantle objects, and customize their character. Finally, it was stated that players will be able to activate environmental hazards, rather than the hazards automatically activating without player interference. It will also allow players to do some hidden sub-missions which will result in new twists in the campaign storyline.
Fingers crossed we have dedicated servers this time!
