Steam Reaches 5 Million Concurrent Users
It's actually 4,916,000 as of now =\
Try out the new link fluffy :)
I first became a steam member when it came with HL2 and it was nothing like it is now. I didnt even know they offered achievements and such. When did that happen? I hadnt gamed on my PC since the 360 came out and continued that trend when the ps3 came out. It became more of a chore to ensure my pc had what it took to play the game where as with a console being a closed system you knew the game would play the same as the next guy's ps3/360. I did hop back onto steam to redeem a gift of torchlight a friend sent me. That is a fun game. Good job valve for making steam what it is today as well as new ideas as time progresses.
@darthv72 I'm not entirly sure of the exact time the steam achievements came around , but i do remember them appearing in Half-Life : Episode 2 which came out on 10th October 2007. Seems Valve have also implemeneted them into Half life 2 and Episode 1 aswell , but i think that was at a later date.
I don't game on the CPU, but I've heard great things about steam.
Just a few months ago Steam reached 3.5 million. Then a few weeks ago it seems Steam reached 4 million. ....and now the impressive 5 million mark! Congrats to steam on another milestone reached! Football Manager 2012 is a huge seller and has been beating MW3 PC daily! Although the editor thought it was "bizarre" it just goes to show you the difference in taste of games of PC Gamers to Consolers and when DotA 2 gets released it might surpass Skyrim! C-ya all at the 6 million party!
Very impressive, I also decided to join a few weeks ago and I really like it.
Enjoy steaming dude!
Other than the crappy support steam is "almost" perfect, after purchasing Sega complete pack now I own 600+ games.
so crappy they pretty much give u refunds no questions asked ... ;)
The PSN has 80million users
I wonder how many of those are duplicate accounts so EU users can browse the US and JP store and vice versa.
Concurrent means all online at the same time. Not amount of users altogether. And PSN is a little different to Steam, PSN is required on a PS3 if you're online. On PC, Steam is a choice.
"Steam Reaches 5 Million Concurrent Users" Steam users were over 25M 2 years ago, this number probably increased by a lot by now.
I'm sure that includes the account of people who no longer use their PS3 as well, lololol.
