Steam sale overloads servers

Due to high demand from almost 5 million concurrent users, it appears the Steam servers are being hammered in the Steam Sale. (PC, Steam)

Happens every year. Nothing new to report.

Aye, Steam actually goes down a bit (far more frequently than the PSN or XBL), it gets off surprisingly lightly because of it. Doesn't go down for long, but it doesn't mind hiccupping quite a bit. No biggy (for me at least, I tend to play single-player strategy games on PC), but will be good if it were a dash more reliable.

Does that mean the sales were that good? Or the servers are that bad?

Got Borderlands 2 and Bioshock Infinite for now. Ridiculous deals.

Borderlands 2 was much cheaper at gmg last week $13.50 for game and season pass and Infinite was same price with 3 free games.
