Though it’s been significantly low key over the past year, Valve’s Steam Controller has seen a decent amount of cult success since it launched in November 2015.
Valve announced during its presentation at Steam Dev Days (as per Gamasutra) that the Steam Controller managed to sell nearly one million units. Engineer Jeff Bellinghausen noted that sales are expected to hit one million by early 2017. More than 27,000 users employ the Steam Controller daily and that Valve were looking into promoting supported titles on its store.
“One of the more direct methods is to present customers with a ‘most popular with Steam Controller’ games list. Titles on this list will be easily discoverable for both new purchasers as well as existing customers. We will also continue to run focused sales that highlight hand-picked controller-friendly titles.”
