The Steam Controller is almost finished, according to Origin PC CEO Kevin Wasielewski, and we’ll see it at this year’s GDC. Wasielewski, who runs the PC manufacturing company, gave the news to Gamespot at CES 2015 in Las Vegas this week. Unfortunately, he didn’t really say anything else about Valve’s plans.
“At GDC, they’re going to have more information, and we’ll be there. That’s the official stuff we can say,” he said.
“They came out with the controller, then they got some user feedback, and they had to revamp it; they got some more user feedback and had to revamp it again. So they went through that like three or four times. And now their controller is finalized. So now they’re going to production and at GDC is when they’re going to announce more stuff.”
Wasielewski made a couple of other comments suggesting the PC industry has gone cold on the idea, too, and that the term “Steam Machine” is “pretty much dead”.
“Living room PCs have been around forever. That’s not anything new either. But it seems like there’s a legitimate demand and push for living room PCs,” he said. GDC takes place in March.
