Big Picture – Steam Platform

By Florent Alix

The Steam game platform, developed by Valve, goes from PC to TV screens with Big Picture. In addition to transferring the video game to the living-room (and becoming a potential competitor of Sony or Microsoft), Valve offers an interface adapted for the television, and an interaction system based on the use of the joystick while not preventing you from plugging in your keyboard/mouse.

Want to check it out? The beta version is already available for PC:http://store.steampowered.com/bigpicture/) (the MAC version is in development).
