Steam, the renowned video game digital distribution platform developed by Valve Corporation, is known for its extensive library of games across various genres. In a significant update for PlayStation controller users, Steam has announced a new feature that greatly enhances their gaming experience on PC.
This latest update to Steam is especially beneficial for owners of PlayStation’s DualSense and DualShock controllers. It introduces a functionality that allows these users to easily find games with full controller support. This development means playing games on a PC with PlayStation controllers is now more accessible and straightforward than ever. Additionally, the update brings enhancements to the platform's navigation, making the gaming experience smoother for all users.
Major update on Steam for PC gamers with PlayStation Controllers
Steam has made improvements to its dedicated Controller-Hub page, where users can now search for games by controller type. This includes options for Xbox, DualSense, DualShock, or a combination of these. The same filtering options have been incorporated into the general game search function. Moreover, on the library page, users have the option to filter their games based on the type of controller support they offer. In an effort to provide clearer information, Valve has also updated the store pages for individual titles to display the type of controller support available - whether full or partial.
It's important to note that full controller support in Steam games covers almost all common actions and interactions that a player would expect from a controller. Partial controller support, on the other hand, may result in some mismatches, such as displaying the wrong button icon for certain actions.
This update from Steam is a welcome change for PC gamers, particularly those who prefer using PlayStation controllers. It demonstrates Steam’s commitment to enhancing the gaming experience for its diverse user base.
