Steam Big Picture Goes Live with Controller-Friendly Game Sale

Paul Lilly

Valve today announced the public release of Big Picture , the 10-foot user interface (UI) that makes it easier for PC gamers to plop on the couch and play their catalog of titles on their big screen HDTV. To celebrate the public launch, more than thirty "controller-friendly" games will be on sale from now until December 10, some of which will be marked down by as much a 75 percent.

"Access to the complete Steam store is included, as is the Steam Community. Big Picture is available worldwide in over twenty languages, including German, French, Russian, Korean, and Portuguese," Valve stated in a blog post .

Prior to today, Big Picture mode was available in beta form . You may remember we posted a guide on how to enable it. Now that the Big Picture UI is available to the public, all you need to do is fire up Steam as you normally would and click on "Big Picture" in the upper-right corner (you can't miss it). If you don't like it, just revert back to the normal interface.
