Valve launches Steam's Big Picture; celebrates with huge sale on controller-friendly games

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Today, Valve debuted its Big Picture service on Steam; a new mode that allows gamers to access their Steam games through their TV with support for both gamepads and a mouse-and-keyboard setup.  Players will also have full access to the Steam Store and all their existing games, and Big Picture will be available worldwide in over twenty languages. 

To experience it, all you need to do is connect your system to your TV via HDMI, and navigate Steam with a new browser interface designed specifically for the TV.  

Valve launches Steam's Big Picture; celebrates with huge sale on controller-friendly game

In celebration of the launch of this service, Valve has put over thirty 'controller-friendly' games on sale until December 10, offering savings of up to 75% off. 

Another interesting change made by Valve today, but one which received little fanfare, is the fact that users can now install their games to Windows folders other than the default one (though the functionality was available for quite some time through the Steam beta beforehand). 

All in all, not a bad day for gamers on the Steam service.
