Valve has been including new features to Steam and now Valve has officially included support for Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to Steam.

According to Valve, they are pleased to add the Nintendo Switch pro controller support to Steam and believe that the d-pad is ideal for fighting games and platformers.

We’re pleased to announce that the latest Steam Client Beta adds support for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. We think it is a great device with a feature set that pairs nicely with your Steam catalog. The d-pad is ideal for fighting games and platformers and the gyro enhances aim in your action/FPS titles.

Speaking of Switch, Recently, a future-proof Switch hack was made public which can’t be patched due to inherent vulnerabilities in Nvidia Tegra chip and shortly after that hackers have managed to run GameCube Emulator on Switch.

The aforementioned exploit is basically related to Nvidia Tegra X1 chip which unfortunately also powers the Nintendo Switch.

The exploit uses the Tegra X1’s USB recovery mode vulnerability that circumvents the lock-out functionality whose job is to protect the bootROM.

Recently, Valve made some changes to Steam’s privacy policay which resulted in SteamSpy shutting down. However, creator Sergey Galyonkin developed a new algorithm to keep its service alive.

According to Galyonkin, the new algorithm for its service uses the coincidental data on games and machine learning.

However, he added that the new algorithm is “not very accurate” and there is approx. 10% margin for all games that he tested for the new algorithm.
