Valve has come to the conference talking about plans to take over your TV with their juggernaut of a download base, Steam. Steam started out on the PC alone but their download model has exploded in the past few years, causing the growth to Mac and making it the premiere place to download games on the computer, and now they want to have you do that on your TV as well. Is there nowhere that Steam can't go? "Big picture" mode is coming to a TV near you soon with controller friendly options to make playing on your 60 inch TV more awesome.
"Our partners and customers have asked us to make Steam available in more places," said Doug Lombardi. He's the 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 of computer display."
Anyone that already plays their PC games on their PC have any qualms about this? Seems like it would be obsolete if you already have that set up but hoorah for Valve dominance. Now where is my HL2: Episode 3?
