Valve Removing Touchscreen From Steam Controller

During today's Steam Dev Day event, Valve announced that the Steam Controller has been redesigned. The company has opted to remove the touchscreen and instead add a d-pad and typical ABXY button layout.

Twitter userLeszek Godlewskiposted the following image of what is apparently the new prototype.

What do you think of the changes? Let us know in the comments below.
