Valve Corporation has discussed making it’s top game, DOTA 2, compatible with the Steam controller.

Many people are wondering if this is doable. DOTA 2 is a complex game that uses about half of a PC keyboard. Condensing all these buttons down into a handheld controller, many think, is impossible. Valve, however, insists that they can do it, and if they can, it will be very exciting to see, since many gamers are anxious to be able to play DOTA 2 on the Steam controller.

Steam is a service that sells games available for download. Many old games are found on Steam, and gamers can also find many games on Steam that aren’t available anywhere else.

DOTA 2 is a standalone sequel game developed from the original Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) game. It is a multiplayer online battle arena game that involves two teams of five players playing against each other. In each team’s stronghold resides an Ancient. A team is victorious when it destroys the enemy team’s Ancient. Today, it is one of the most popular games out there.
