Steam: Big Picture
 
Quote:

Steam's Big Picture Mode, the new menu designed for use on TVs, will be available in beta today, as reported over the weekend. More information, including screenshots of the menu, was released today, including the look at the on-screen keyboard.

The "lotus" style keyboard (as in the flower, not the software company) has users tilt an analog stick in one of eight directions to highlight a cluster of letters, then hit a colored button to specify the letter. It's a weird-looking solution to the problem of on-screen typing, but a Valve staffer told Kotaku that when people try it, "they're almost instantly faster than [when using] QWERTY."

Are these people that rarely use a keyboard? If you use a keyboard for even an hour every day for 2-3 years, you can at the very least type at 50 WPM or something definitely faster, unless they've practiced with the system.

Spoiler!
