Reply to All: Does Steam Big Picture Change Your Living Room?

The contributors to Horrible Night discuss the promise of Big Picture, how it may effect their primary gaming setup and if it changes their platform loyalties. (PC, PS3, Steam Big Picture, Xbox 360)

not for me, but it is a nice touch for those who are new to pc on a tv

since around 2006 my various pc's are or have been connected to either a 42" toshiba (sold that tv, hated it) a 50 panasonic plasma (mostly for watching blurays), 55" samsung led or a 32" samsung 3d smart tv (32es6500, damn fine little tv)

when i wanna really see a game shine though, thats when its time for the 30" 2560x1600 beauty :) no 1080p tv made on this earth comes close to a 30" 2560x1600 screen properly calibrated and running at a sexxy 60 frames

I don't use it in my living room, honestly I haven't really used it all that much anyways :S It looks good and is interesting but after starting up some games with a controller you'll probably need to use a keyboard to sign in or a mouse to make sure it boots up until you can use one :)

I use it all the time! It's definitely still in beta and needs some improvements, but knowing Valve it'll be perfect soon enough.
It's awesome. I have my PS3 controller connected with bluetooth to my PC emulating a 360 controller. I just push the PS button and BOOM Steam opens on my TV and i can do whatever i want. Play all my awesome cheap games, like Darksiders 2 which cost 29.99, all with a PS3 controller from my bed.

I've absolutely moved away from PS3 despite the exclusives, which have been somewhat lacking over the past little while. Im also spoiled by 1080p... playing games in 720p is instantly noticeable to me now that im so used to 1080

Lol gone off topic. Anyway Big Picture Mode is awesome!

I'm waiting for them to allow me to force it on my secondary monitor and have all the game boot up there.

Lol It can <.<

Settings -> Displays -> Target Monitor -> Secondary Monitor

No kidding? Does that just work for the Big Picture Mode or for every game you boot up?
Axecution  +   1017d ago
I would assume just every game you boot up from big picture mode

Not sure though haha i'll check it out later
