Not too long ago I reviewed the Novint Falcon controller and found that it was very interesting and added a lot to compatible game titles. The catch was that many of the top video games didn’t offer support for the Falcon.

Today Novint and Valve have announced an agreement that will add support for the Falcon to many of Valve’s most popular game titles. Valve’s action games account for about 80% of the online action market. Under the agreement Valve will add Falcon support to The Orange Box, Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life 2 series, Team Fortress 2, Portal and the Left 4 Dead series.

"We're very excited to partner with a company so dominant in the PC game industry," said Novint CEO, Tom Anderson. "Their sustained excellence, best-selling games, enormous user base, and forward looking vision make them standard bearers for the industry. Integration with some of the best-selling and best-reviewed games of all time, along with access to millions of users on Steam, are significant milestones for Novint. Along with the introduction of the Novint Falcon Pistol Grip, we believe that FPS players using the Falcon will have the most compelling and immersive FPS experience to date."
