Valve has announced that Big Picture mode is now live and available to all Steam users. If you haven’t been keeping up with the feature, Big Picture mode has been in beta since summer. The feature will allow Steam users to play and access Steam games on a TV. Not only that, but the feature includes added controller support.
Over thirty controller-friendly games have been put on sale through December 10th on Steam to celebrate the launch of Big Picture mode.
In my experience, Big Picture mode has worked seamlessly. Users may see it stutter here and there, but hopefully that is a kink that will get worked out in future updates.
