Amazon slashes Steam controller price as Steam Summer Sale 2017 kicks off

Steam Summer Sale 2017 List

The massive Steam Summer Sale 2017 kicked off on Thursday, and you can find all the best deals in our earlier coverage. Long story short, you're going to save a ton of money on some fantastic Steam games during this year's sale. In fact, you'll enjoy savings of up to 85% off! To complement the big Summer Sale currently underway, Amazon has slashed $15 off the price of the Steam Controller, making this the perfect time to refresh your gear. You probably wore out your current controllers playing all the games you picked up during last year's Steam Summer Sale, so why not start fresh?

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Experience a new level of precise control for your favorite games. The Steam Controller lets you play your entire collection of Steam games on your TV-even the ones designed without controller support in mind.
  • Features dual trackpads, HD haptic feedback, dual-stage triggers, back grip buttons, and fully-customizable control schemes. Find your favorite mappings in the Steam Community, or create and share your own.
  • Dual trackpads allow for 1:1 absolute position input via virtual controls like a trackball, adaptive centering joystick, or steering wheel
  • Dual-stage triggers can be used as analog, digital, or both types of input at the same time. Put your iron-sights on the sweep-in, and then fire with the reliable feel of a tactile switch, all on the same trigger.
  • Each of the Steam Controller's input zones and buttons has been positioned based on frequency of use, required precision, and ergonomic comfort.

Steam Controller: $34.99

Also discounted is the Steam Link, though inventory is running out quickly so you had better hurry if you want one.

Steam Link: $36.70

How to get PokeCoins from Pokemon Go’s new and improved gyms

Pokemon Go: How to get PokeCoins

On Thursday afternoon, Pokemon Go developer Niantic flipped a switch and activated the game's new and improved gyms. Revealed earlier this week, the revamped gyms are the most substantial change Pokemon Go has seen since launch, introducing a new motivation system, allowing trainers to feed berries to Pokemon in an allied gym and letting trainers spin the Photo Discs at gyms.

One element of the gym update that Niantic didn't explain was the new system for collecting PokeCoins. Thankfully, it didn't take long for the internet to figure out how the new system works.

Nintendo swears it’s not faking Switch shortages

nintendo switch shortage

When a new gadget is in short supply there are only two possibilities for why that is the case: Either the company simply can't make enough to satisfy the consumer lust for the product, or the company is intentionally bottlenecking its shipments in order to artificially create a sense of demand. Plenty of companies have been accused of such things in the past, and while Nintendo is no stranger to being on the receiving end of those accusations — especially with the original Wii — the company is now swearing that the sold-out Switch console isn't a product of artificial demand.
