Steam Big Picture mode for TV goes live
It has conquered PC gaming, owns the Mac gaming market, but is not in any way yet thinking of stopping. In a phase of bigger and greater expansion, Steam has officially released its 'Big Picture' mode in plans to invade your living room.
Oh yes, Steam's Big Picture mode now allows you to play most Steam games on your TV with full compatibility with a game controller. With it, you'll be able to manage your Steam account, surf the web, and definitely enjoy your games at the comfort of your living room.
To celebrate the big move, Steam has also announced a week long sale for all the partially and fully-compatible games with up to 75% cut in prices, and that includes one of our favourites Portal 2!
Oh, did we mention that while using Steam Big Picture with a controller, you will be introduced to an all-new way of 'typing'? Yeah, do check it out. That's innovation, and it's feeling pretty unique right now (though definitely need some time getting used to).
