Big Picture mode beta for Steam has gone live
| by Shunal Doke |
Some time ago, Valve had put out the idea for a “Big Picture” mode for its extremely popular digital distribution software Steam. This mode would have a brand new interface that would be better suited to hooking your computer up to your HDTV and use with a controller, thus bridging some of the gaps between PC and console gaming. Now, the beta for the Big Picture mode has gone live. Valve has also released a video that lists some of the features of Big Picture mode.
Those interested can opt in to the beta through the settings on their Steam client. The Big Picture mode introduces many changes including a new keyboard called the Daisywheel that lets you type well using a standard dual analogue stick controller. The UI changes are massive, including bigger buttons to use with your controller along with a new web browser that Valve has dubbed “the world’s first first-person web browser”. After opting in to the beta for the Big Picture mode and downloading the appropriate updates for the Steam client, users can click activate Big Picture mode by just clicking on a big button that says Big Picture.
