    thought about buying that Steam controller too, but it's so hard to accept such a great deal when the shipping cost to my country is so frigging ridiculous.
    not to mention the amount of time i'll have to wait.

    You're better off with an Xbox controller, because they're not crap.

    Valve can run their sales however they want, but...
    "Notice: Limited quantity remaining"
    and
    "Delivery delays are expected due to high order volume"

    Are not compatible statements. Either you are limiting the sale to stock on hand and should be able to deliver them immediately or you are only willing to sell one of these per person at that price regardless of whether you have any in stock or not. Since it is obviously the latter, why not just be ethical and state that? No need to be scummy about your sale, Valve.

    For the $13 ($7.99 shipping) I figure I'd try the controller.

    There's also a controller carrying case on sale for $2. I went ahead and picked up both, but after shipping my total was $19. Still a good deal for a controller that normally sells for $50.

    Well, just got the Steam Controller, shipping was more than the controller, but it's still much cheaper than the normal price so meh.

    Curiosity’s sake. I have a PC setup in my bedroom and I can’t sit at the TV with a traditional mouse and keyboards. I’m interested in trying the steam controller for games like Civ or something. I totally understand it might suck though so lol.

    I hear lovely things about the game but I hated it. Odyssey is far superior IMO. (You can prob get away with low settings if you do wanna try though! Don’t forget steam has a <2hr refund policy if it doesn’t work!)
