Valve Removing Touchscreen From Steam Controller

With regards to why Valve made these changes, the company said it found that the touchscreen was a distraction to the player, and the more traditional button layout makes compatibility with older games a bit easier to handle. I'm guessing it'll help Valve keep the cost of the control pad down, too. The controller will be powered by two AA batteries and use a low latency Bluetooth connection.

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