Okay, now to play devil's advocate: yes, it's Valve. They haven't steered us wrong in a while. We should give them the benefit of a doubt. But, remember Sony and the Bangarang, guys? Sony with the PS2, we all thought they probably couldn't do no wrong. Long story short, we got the DS3 a year later. Hmmm. Just a thought that popped into my head. Not sure it's worth chewing on.
For what it's worth, that original PS3 "Bat-a-rang" looked comfy as shit to hold.
