Valve is launching Big Picture, a full screen option mode to play Steam that is optimized for TV's (better picture and more interactive than just plugging your PC into a TV as is):
Their video makes a good point for what's missing when you jump from your computer to console play, or what changes for you as a player. The only drawback is what has hampered most computer players jumping on the main tv set in the home: having a computer (your main gaming rig) hooked up to the main television. If this isn't an issue for you, then it seems like a great option. Though you can still use your keyboard and mouse, it's designed for controller play and even shows off a new on screen wheel-keyboard you operate with your controller.
If you are a major Steam gamer though and have the ability to hook up your gaming computer to your big screen, or use a laptop as your gaming machine, then this sounds like a perfect fit for you. You can take your entire Steam library of games, your network of friends, get access to a custome 'first person' web browser online and more.
