Valve runs out of Steam… Controllers and is cancelling your orders

Valve has oversold the last few remaining Steam Controllers in existence, and has been forced to cancel some customer orders. The divisive controller, first introduced in 2015, was recently sold at a significantly reduced priced after receiving end-of-life status. However, the sudden surge in popularity for the would-be relic has left Valve with more orders than it can fulfil.

Users across Reddit and ResetEra took to the forums to report their recent refunded purchases (via VG247). Unfortunately for these users, it’s either go without totally tubular trackpads or dive into the inflated second-hand Steam Controller market while the going’s good and used stock is aplenty.

One user posted a screenshot of the Steam Support account’s official response. “During our recent sale, we mistakenly took more orders for the Steam Controller than we were able to fulfil. As we are no longer producing this product, we are unable to send you a Steam Controller and have refunded your purchase…. We sincerely apologise for the confusion and inconvenience.”
