Anyone have any insight as to when the Steam Controller might be available locally? My Steam account won't let me pre-order to this neck of the woods and unlike the UK or US, I can't see it offered on any of the Gaming stores or sites either.

Mrs Item is in the UK November, so maybe best bet is to ask her to pick me one up?

I'm also wanting to get one, but guessing I'll have to order off ebay after theyre released.

I'm still trying to decide whether to get one or hook up an Xbone controller, I've read that the Steam controller is a bit chunky and not quite as comfortable to hold - but I'm waiting for more reviews before I make a decision.

Looking to Min-ITX my gaming PC and keep it in the lounge where it is currently sitting, hooked up to the big TV.

Many games play well with the XBox controller, but looking to start playing Civ and other mouse-critical games from the couch too. Have read really promising things about how the controller copes with traditional mouse + keyboard games...

I'll be waiting for more reviews too. It looks like it could be something special but ultimately if it's uncomfortable then I ain't dropping the bucks.
