Steam’s Big Picture mode now live and kicking globally

For gamers, this is important news. Steam’s console-like experience, Big Picture, is now available in all countries. Steam is a content delivery platform for gamers, and Big Picture mode turns the interface into a TV-friendly experience.

Big Picture has been in Beta for ages now, and today it enters the proving ground as gamers globally switch over to a console-like experience. With Big Picture, a console becomes the primary form of input, with the keyboard and mouse relegated to the sidelines if the user so chooses. All games purchased on Steam can be played on Big Picture mode.

It’s also available in multiple languages, such as Russian and French. Most interestingly is the web browser which is custom-made for controllers, it’s also accessible at any point, even during a game. Based on the video, it looks a treat to use and we’re keen to get started with it. Especially since a bunch of games are now 75% off.
