Steam rumored to offer movies, TV, music and more in future release

In a future release of Steam, Valve should offer gamers access to movies, TV series, videos, music and more.

Valve is looking into 2015 with optimism, with its Steam Machines, Steam OS, Steam Controller, Steam Box and much more coming out next year. Between now and then, the Steam Database on Twitter (@SteamDB) has spotted the addition of a few interesting things in the latest beta of Steam.

SteamDB noticed films, TV series, video, plugin and music in the latest beta of Steam, with other users noticing Spotify mentioned in Steam code last year. This makes sense, as Valve is pushing Steam into the living room, with not only Big Picture Mode, but with all of its various services, hardware and even gaming systems coming out soon.

If Valve wants to compete against the likes of Sony, Microsoft and Apple, it's going to need to provide everything they do - movies, TV shows, music and much more. But with a kick-ass service like Steam behind it, could we finally see the living room become a proper, PC-based (but controllers on offer) gaming nirvana? I'm enthusiastic about it, with Valve having my total support for it - but this isn't Half-Life 3 confirmed just yet.
