In  FS#46752 ,

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="28de", MODE="0666"

was added to udev rules in the steam package. That's way more lax than all other joysticks, which use TAG+="uinput" to grant permissions to logged-in users.
This task depends upon

I think this is a good idea, and it could also fix the controller emulation/uinput problem. See  FS#46833 .

This would be the resulting rule that fixes both bugs:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="28de", MODE="0660", TAG+="uaccess"
KERNEL=="uinput", SUBSYSTEM=="misc", OPTIONS+="static_node=uinput", TAG+="uaccess"
