        No incentive, sony wants you to buy their products not someone elses.
        Valve doesnt care because their attempt at a controller flopped, so they just adapted the software to everything else instead.
        Why would they be allowed to support PS, and XBOX, but not Nintendo?

        Because Sony and MS don't want to allow you to use their competitor's controller with their console, so they don't. There's no technical or legal reason why they couldn't though. Valve doesn't care what controller you use because you're buying games from them either way.

      Two ways, but first the tl;dr is neither apply in this case:
      1) Proprietary encodings protected by patents or trade secrets. If you have to decode a proprietary "method to encode and decode controller input data" then you may find it essentially impossible to do so without infringing on some software patent. See MPEG shit. It's basically impossible to make a non-infringing implementation because the patents were written so very cleverly.
      2) Encryption. The DMCA means it's illegal to bypass encryption. If you find an exploit and break the encryption somehow then you're guilty of circumvention of a security system. If you find the keys, you are in possession of a secret you aren't legally permitted to know. CSS decryption keys became widely distributed and the MPAA tried really hard to put a lid on it. They couldn't because it's "just a number." So they made sure to get their pet politicians to close that loophole and it's now a crime to distribute the disc keys.

        French laws states that you can reverse engineer stuff as long as the goal is to make it work with something else so I wouldn't be surprised if a similar law existed wherever Steam is located. The only reason it is illegal is to prevent you from making a copy.

        No it doesn’t. There are specific devices that have a lower latency when connected via BT but thats on the device as USB is faster/lower latency by default.

        • 1 week ago
          Anonymous

          It's not as simple as that. Most of the time your BT controller is connected via. USB under windows so you're getting USB latency on top of BT latency which makes it worse for you than it needs to be. Consoles tend to include BT as part of the WiFi chipset connected over PCIe or part of the SoC.
          USB has higher latency than even it should on the switch because it's a hub design. All your packets are going through an intermediary and that will always suck because the USB protocol is kinda shit by design and will always have a disappointing amount of latency.
          There's a reason PC users prefer PS2 keyboards, because USB just sucks, both by design and by implementation.

            I was talking PC and about usb wired not via a dongle. Its faster unless the implementation, see switch, is complete ass. Even the fastest wireless mice atm. still have a measurably lower latency in wired mode if they intend to provide it as a high speed option and they do not use BT at all or if they have the option its at some shitty polling rate (Razer).

            Consoles (this gen) are a different thing but i dont play anything related/impactful on those.

          No its bullshit. But if you are interested in mice specifically than the recent wireless solutions from logitech and razer are nearly as fast/ low latency as the wired connection and by nearly i mean it’s only a measuable tolerance and nothing a human could notice or could be of any impact on the global system end to end latency (input to display).

          Those devices do not use bluetooth for their fast(est) wireless connections though, its usb-rf or proprietary stuff.

          For Chivalry 2 you just want highest fps possible and any gaymer mouse you like. The latency i blogged about above is for esports/fps/rts autism really and in 99,9% of the cases you want to go like this roughly: clean software(no overlays, not a million background shit doing fuck, no recording, streaming), good ping, low bufferbloat and stable connection and no vsync/gsync/freesync/any sync>high fps>high refresh rate display>gaymer mouse/keyboard now if you lose they obviously cheat.

    Bros I am sick. It's not FUCKING FAIR. Steamies get porn games and mods and summer sales and unlocked framerates and now they're going to get our fucking controllers? I pay my monthly subscription Nintendo. I don't even play any games online but I pay it to support my favorite childhood company. DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.

      As someone who wasted teen years on Internet forum wars, I'd say that there are 'seasons'. Which fanbase is currently the worst depends on the stage of a console gen cycle and certain events happening. They all get extremely bad during the turning points of a new console generation. On GameSpot each of the fanboy groups are even named after an animal for some fucking reason (posted there for a few years and never new why, how or when).

        Well, even if you were correct (I don't give a fuck honestly, nintendo do the worst damage to game preservation efforts right now and thus I will forever hate them and their embarassing bootlicker fanbase)
        THIS "Season" nintendo fans are the worst. So they are the worst fanbase on Ganker.

        it's almost like nintendo and PC (and by PC i mean valve) are the only serious candidates for a console-war on Ganker now that sony's embarrassing itself and xbox is still dead in the water

        and it's almost like all console wars for the past several years have revolved around being a cartoony parody of some guy a poster imagines is a lifelong fan of the company they're trying to hate on

        and it's almost like some posters really don't know what to do now that console wars are not only unpopular on Ganker right now, but they're hard to even get started because there's nothing really going on in the console world right now

          I unironically feel like consoles are dying and more and more people on Ganker are starting to play games exclusively on PC now that GPU prices have stabilized. Nintendo fans are the last vestiges holding on for dear life.

            "holding on for dear life" is pretty extreme because, as always, nintendo does not give a fuck what the other markets are doing, Ganker's rivalries for nintendo and the collective idear that nintendo feels they're in trouble by any recent market move is pure headcanon and wishful thinking

              I was talking about nintendo fans on Ganker, not nintendo. Consoles can sell well with normies and not be popular on Ganker at all, like how many Apple Arcade discussions are there on here?

    Because billionaire fat cats like Gabe Newell can abuse the legal system for their own gain. If there was any real justice in the world Gabe Newell would have been sent to federal prison on March 4, 2021.

    Valve screwed over the Artifact fanbase by cancelling the Artifact 2.0 beta without even allowing users to invite friends like they said they would in January 2021 and does not deserve your financial support for these gross consumer-unfriendly practices.

    How is it not? They're not claiming ownership of them or anything, just allowing you to use them with games on steam. IIRC you could already use the switch pro controllers on steam anyway.
