VALVE PIENSA EN ALGO MAQUIAVÉLICO
¿Quieren dar el salto al tema del hardware?, ¿están cansados del ratón?, ¿están pensando en diseñar un control especial Y standard para el PC?.
Though there are certainly gamepads out there for PC players to use (the Xbox 360 controller, for example), Lombardi states that Valve is very much interested in producing its own. «It’s actually something that, I mean there’s nothing to announce yet, but it’s something we’re definitely looking at. You hit the nail right on the head; there’s a lot of games coming out right now on Steam that might be better [with a controller]. Everyday Shooter is a perfect example, right? It’s something that we’re looking at. It’s something that these games are showing us there’s a need there. They’re proving to us that, oh wow, this is pretty cool. If there was a controller set for these things, they’d be even better. It’s something we’re looking at and something we’re going to start talking to those people who specialize in those areas about.»
