Yesterday, Valve launched an open beta for a new Steam interface, "Big Picture Mode." Designed specifically for large displays, such as living room televisions, it features a clean look and a number of usability features that once again affirm that there's no company doing PC gaming better today than Valve.
Check out this video I put together going over some of the features. You can try Big Picture Mode today by signing up for the Beta Client from within Steam.
