More On Steam’s Big Picture
and Ben Kuchera’s thoughts on the service.
Big Picture is certainly going to be a selling point for vendors who make small, living room friendly PCs, and it may cause a few more players to try playing their games on their television sets. Valve may also have some ideas on how to solve the problem of the mouse and keyboard in the living room, which would certainly be an interesting step forward in interactivity for PC gaming. It’s unlikely that any of this is going to happen soon, though, so the idea that Big Picture is causing the console manufacturers any stress is hyperbole.
