Dangit all. I really want to try out one of those controllers. They look like they'd be terrible, but all the reviews have said that they're fairly intuitive...Guess I'll have to wait another year to try it out. :/

Wait, which link? I feel like I've missed something. :D
This is dumb. You can always improve a product as you gain expertise and come up with new ideas, and plenty of engineers (by their own admission) will never stop tweaking a product. That's why there needs to be someone in charge that says, "Wrap it, we're manufacturing in a week".
IMHO, Valve is in danger of letting the whole Steam Machine thing turn into vaporware.
Is a wireless controller cool? Yes. Can you release them later, after you have products shipping to thousands of anxious consumers? Also yes.
I absolutely agree that an emerging technology needs to get good enough ASAP, be released, and then get tweaked to perfection over time, but Valve already has such a strong support base that I don't see this delay being an issue.
This is a good thing, any informed techie know that it's sort of a BAD time to buy computer tech with DDR4 Ram, SATA Express, PCIe4, & Skylake will become mainstream at the end of the year.
It would also be somewhat of an awkward period next year given the fact the new tech Nvidia will have planned in 2016, but it's definitely not as bad as this year.
Most would've had buyer's remorse.
