View Full Version : Casting The Couch: Steam‚??s Big Picture Beta Out Today

09-10-12, 05:50 AM

Tendrils of Steam are preparing to spread throughout homes across the world. With all the talk and rumours of wearable computers (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/08/22/valves-abrash-on-virtual-reality-wearable-computing/), a Steam OS (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/08/16/heres-a-thought-what-if-valve-were-making-steamos/) and anything with a ‚??3‚?≤ in the title, it‚??s been easy to forget about The Big Picture (http://www.steampowered.com/steamworks/thebigpicture.php). With an interface designed for television screens, Big Picture will transfer the Steam library to your living room, ‚??or anywhere there‚??s a big screen‚??, so you can finally play Left 4 Dead on that fifty inch Plasma screen in the bathroom while soaking in the tub. A New York Times feature (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/09/technology/valve-a-video-game-maker-with-few-rules.html) on Valve drops the information that Big Picture will enter public beta today, although quite how and when specifically is not mentioned. I‚??m keen to test this out, even though my big screen isn‚??t all that much bigger than my small one.
