This launch trailer is highlighting just a few of the features that will be included with Big Picture, Steam TV's first TV interface. We all know that sitting at your desk with a mouse and a keyboard has its time and place, but sometimes we would like to get horizontal and use a controller.

Steam TV knows that as well, and they want to be the centralized hub of your gaming experience. Watch the trailer and check back for updates when the beta for Big Picture launches this afternoon. Valve isn't happy with the currently stagnant state of home consoles, so they've decided to do something about it. Pretty impressive when the makers of Portal, look at the state of things and decide they can do better. Thanks to Kotaku for the exclusive. What do you think? Let us know on Twitter.
