After months in beta, the Big Picture mode for popular digital distribution platform and gaming-based social network Steam has finally been launched. This comes as a sigh of relief for gamers who prefer to connect their gaming computers to large TVs.The Big Picture mode for Steam is a complete revamp of the interface to be used with larger screens with a controller. The mode introduces the Daisywheel keyboard that is meant to help make typing with a controller more intuitive. Currently, Big Picture mode is available in over twenty languages, which include German, French, Russian, Korean, and Portuguese, along with the obvious English.To commemorate the launch of Big Picture mode, Valve is having a sale on more than thirty games that are controller-friendly, which includes games like Portal 2 (75 percent off), Left 4 Dead 2 (75 percent off), Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit (75 percent off) and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (50 percent off), among other games.
