Steam Coming To TV

By David Howard, Editor-in-Chief and Founder

Valve has announced plans for a new “big picture” mode of Steam which will offer controller support and navigation designed for TVs.

“Our partners and customers have asked us to make Steam available in more places. With the introduction of Steam on the Mac, and soon in Portal 2 on the PS3T, we’ve done just that,” said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing for Valve. “With big picture mode, gaming opportunities for Steam partners and customers become possible via PCs and Macs on any TV or computer display in the house.”

It seems that Valve are continuing to push their service onto more and as many platforms as possible. It certainly will be interesting to see where this leads.
