Steam Big Picture Mode will allow you to access your Steam games on your living room television – and according to Valve it’s coming soon. While very little is known about it, it’s widely believed to incorporate a gamepad, as well as an interface that’ll look the business on your HDTV.
Valve’s Jason Holtman told PCGamesN that a launch is close: “We have all this great content, and it’s super good looking. You own Skyrim on Steam, and a huge television, and 5.1 surround. Why wouldn’t you want to see it there?”
You’ll most likely still need a PC running Steam, but Big Picture Mode will change the way you interact with it. Don't get it confused with the rumoured Steam console though - Valve has made it very clear that it doesnt currently have any plans to launch a hardware devices in conjunction with Big Picture Mode.
