This is awesome right here. Games just need to support it, like Skyrim for instance, which still needs a mouse to get through the launcher.

Then get a wireless mouse. Seriously, I like Big Picture and all but I have a bad feeling about giving companies more of a reason to release crappy consolized ports.

No. I want controller support. Evidently, Valve figures others do as well, since there's this whole Big Picture mode right here. I don't have any bad feelings about giving companies more of a reason to make my Xbox 360 completely obsolete.

I've gamed on the couch using a wireless mouse; it's inferior to using a controller in that situation. It's less comfortable, it's far less ergonomic. If I have to use a mouse/keyboard, I'm using them at a desk; if I'm gaming on the couch, I'm using a controller. I'm not about to replace desk PC gaming with couch PC gaming (strategy games on a couch? Multiplayer FPSs? Hah), it's more about replacing couch console gaming with couch PC gaming.

Consoles haven't killed traditional PC gaming yet, and I really doubt TV-friendly interfaces will either. I don't care in any case, I'm just going to buy the games I want to buy and play them the way I want to play them.
