I’ve been delighted with the last few weeks of Valve’s beta for Steam’s TV-friendly Big Picture Mode. The interface update, which formats Steam and Steam-released games’ GUI to fit big screen TVs has been–all told–a pleasant experience on my own home display (just resist the soundtrack for “Hotline Miami” thumping from your home entertainment center’s speakers–try, I say!).
Today, Valve announced that today would mark the public release of Big Picture Mode, and to celebrate, they’re selling a bunch of “Big Picture-Friendly games” at a discount through December 10th, with titles like “Mark of the Ninja” and the final “LEGO Harry Potter” making the list.
You can see the full list here, but some highlights: SEGA’s “Hell Yeah!” ($3.74 at 75% off), “Geometry Wars” is a dollar (75% off), and you can grab “Audisurf” for $2.50 (also 75% off).
So are you picking anything up? And what do you think of Big Picture Mode so far?
