If you have been put off from ordering a Steam Controller for your SteamOS/Linux gaming system due to the $50 USD price-tag, it's been marked down to $35.

Back in June it was temporarily reduced to $35 USD but then a few days later shot back up to $50 at major Internet retailers. Judging from those that clicked our Amazon links, it was of interest to many readers. If you missed that discount the first time around, the Steam Controller is back to being listed as a $34.99 product.

It's not clear how long this deal will last or if it is permanent -- there has been speculations about a "Steam Controller 2" but I haven't seen any public confirmation yet.

If you are interested in Valve's Steam Controller for just $35 USD, see this link. By using this Amazon link you'll also support Phoronix in making this purchase (our general affiliate store links are always listed along the right hand column on the site).

The Steam Controller has become much more useful to Linux users (particularly outside of Steam) since its release with various third-party open-source software projects popping up to better enable its support. So if you're interested in using a controller for your SteamOS or Linux system, check it out while it's at quite a bargain.
