Valve unveiled an updated design for its Steam Controller on Wednesday at its annual Steam Dev Days developers conference. Attendees of the conference, including those behind the Steam Database Twitter account, snapped shots of the new prototype and posted them online this afternoon.

In removing both the center touch screen and relocating the surrounding buttons into two diamond-shaped configurations -- one a revision of the existing ABXY button layout and the other potentially a directional pad -- the new device now resembles something closer to an Xbox controller.
Reportedly in place of the touch screen will be support for "ghost mode," a way for users to move a cursor on the television by hovering their finger over a screen on the controller.
