Valve promises continued support

The June update for Valve's uniquely designed Steam Controller brings with it news that the company has sold more than half a million of the devices.

The biggest recent update to come to the controller seems to be the ability to create "action set" controller configurations that a player can switch between on the fly. So, for instance, a player could have different control configurations for walking, driving and flying in Just Cause 3 and swap between them with a button press, without having to pause the game.

Valve also now has full Steam Controller support in VR Game Theater mode, including the ability to use the motion controls as a virtual steering wheel.

Upcoming additions to the controller include the ability to assign actions to press-and-hold, double click and toggle.
