  • Valve adds Switch Pro Controller support to Steam

Valve has announced that it is adding support for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller on Steam in the latest client beta update. "First, opt into the Steam Client Beta then enable support globally by checking the "Nintendo Switch Configuration Support" option in the Controller Settings page".

Keep in mind, you'll need to opt into the Steam Client Beta in order to use these functions today. This will change the A/B along with X/Y switches of your packed config - in the event that you choose template config, Xbox, or a Steam Controller something which will be convenient. Sure, it's a bit hard to convince someone to go out and spend $70 on a controller for their PC - and the Switch Pro's controller is nowhere near as good in terms of battery life as the Wii U's - but the Switch Pro controller is a very solid piece of hardware.

Watch Liverpool players and supporters celebrate after final whistle
Liverpool's European exploits have undoubtedly hampered what seemed a comfortable path to a top-four finish just a few weeks ago. Georginio Wijnaldum insists Real Madrid must be aware of Liverpool's quality ahead of the Champions League final.

However, the Switch Pro controller can also be used on a computer which was possible owing to its Bluetooth support, but to make the controller functional you will need a third-party programme for it to work properly. This practice requires you make a config file to receive started and to download the Steam Beta customer. After those options are set, you will be prompted to connect the controller and register it to your account. If you would rather start out of a community config, press X and then browse the alternatives. Not every game works with motion controls, however, so be sure to test every game out to see which one works. That enables you to make and share configs on a per-game basis.

However, Valve is a fan of the Switch Pro controller and reckon its got enough on offer to appeal to PC gamers. The Controller Settings page also contains a global option to "Use Nintendo Button Layout".
