Valve Reveal Details About Big Picture Mode For SteamIn a new video, Valve detail all the features of Big Picture, the new Big Screen display version of Steam that has just entered beta for PC.

If you’re one of those Steam users who hooks up their PC to their television, but find it cumbersome and difficult to read the text and see the logos (that are usually perfectly sized if you’re sat a foot from a monitor) on a big display, then Big Picture is for you. Designed with a controller in mind (but also compatible with a keyboard and mouse, of course), Big Picture allows you to browse all your games, shop in the store and communicate with friends from the comfort of your couch.

That’s not all- Big Picture also comes with a web browser that’s designed with the controller in mind. An Internet Browser that can be used on TV without being awkward as hell? Typing with the controller with the Daisypad system, with all the comfort and ease of a keyboard? Where do I sign? Check out the trailer below, and if you don’t have Steam installed on PC, pick it up from www.steampowered.com. The beta is at the moment limited to PC, but Mac owners will be able to get in on the action fairly soon.
