In Pictures: Steam Big Picture for TVs next


Steam has just released its Big Picture beta — it's a different interface for the popular game download service, designed to suit anyone using their gaming PC with a big-screen plasma or LCD TV.

The Big Picture beta re-jigs the Steam interface to suit anyone sitting at a distance from their screen — this '10-foot' GUI is already popular thanks to the Xbox 360's Dashboard.

This is the regular Steam interface, designed for a small-screen PC, when viewed on a big-screen TV. You can see the pop-out button for Big Picture mode on the top right of the TV — you'll need to have Beta access enabled in your Steam settings to access this.
