Valve offers Steam for the 'big picture'
Game company Valve, of Half-Life and Portal fame, announced that it will be providing support for its games to run on televisions via their Steam game platform. Steam is available on Mac and Windows.
The company made that announcement at the Game Developer Conference in San Francisco. The initiative, which Valve calls "big picture" mode, lets users play their PC games on their televisions.
"Our partners and customers have asked us to make Steam available in more places. With the introduction of Steam on the Mac, and soon in Portal 2 on the PS3, we've done just that," said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing for Valve. "With big picture mode, gaming opportunities for Steam partners and customers become possible via PCs and Macs on any TV or computer display in the house."
Valve also recently announced that it would release its highly anticipated Portal 2 for Playstation 3, further expanding its platforms.
