Steam's Big Picture mode was released out of beta recently, paving the way to their new "Steam box" console, which will compete with next gen consoles.  Before the "steam box" was just rumors, but Gabe Newell recently confirmed that they were true in an interview with Jason Schreier, from Kotaku!  Valve is hoping to release a gaming pc that will boot up directly to steam, which will, of course, be in Big Picture mode.

Gabe has a bit to say on the situation, including that other companies will definitely be releasing similar products soon.  He also says the hardware will be much more controlled, as apposed to a normal pc.

You can read more of what he says in the interview here:

I'm good... I wonder how many copies will be sold. I already have all my game consoles from this gen and Orbis and the 720 are coming out in 2014 sooooo.... whats the point? just hook up ur pc to a tv if you really want to play pc games like a console.

best part is that you already have games to play on the console! (and so you don't have to worry about waiting on decent launch titles/decent games to come out)

I haven't heard of this until now. Have they discontinued this already?
