Games "Today, Valve will launch the beta of Big Picture mode, a version of Steam designed for your television. That's right. The de facto central hub of PC gaming is now designed to run while you're lounging in your living room - and with a controller, no less. I've tried out Big Picture. It's sleek, intuitive, and groundbreaking in several ways." We've talked about this before. If there's one company that can upend consoles, it's Valve. Everything is falling into place, and I wouldn't be surprised if this - what is essentially the software for the 'Steambox' - will have a tremendous effect on the games industry. Looks great, too.

I agree with all of this, and think they have promising prospects. Just wanted to add a little bit of flavor to the discussion. Its worth being aware of the shape of the landscape.

I think current TV set top solutions are inefficient and worthy of a disruption, so it is personally exciting.
