In an email, Valve said: "SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode is in early beta, and will be showcased at next week's Game Developer Conference in San Francisco. Desktop Theater Mode enables users to play non-VR games with VR systems such as the upcoming HTC Vive and others".

No screenshots or videos have been released, so we should expect a complete unveil this week during GDC. But what should expect? Being able to play all of your Steam games in VR is going to be a huge win for not just Valve, but HTC - the company making the SteamVR-powered Vive headset.
