Steam breaks concurrent user record over the weekend2 Dec 2013
It comes as no huge surprise that the record was broken this weekend because over the past few days the Steam Sale bonanza has seen PC gamers flocking to Steam pick up top bargains. Games that have been proving popular with players over the past couple of days include DOTA 2, Skyrim, TF2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Football Manager 2014, Garry’s Mod and Civilzation V.
The continual growth of Steam is healthy for PC gaming and it’s also good news for Valve who are banking on their Steam Boxes breaking into as many living rooms as possible next year.
With the release of the new consoles, it’s also encouraging to see so many PC gamers active and not being enticed by the inferior Sony and Microsoft machines.
Based on these numbers, PC gaming is definitely dead *cough*.
