Skyrim reaches nearly 250,000 concurrent Steam users on day one, topples MW3

Skyrim’s kind of a big deal. Seeing as you’ve probably heard it mentioned more than the word “the” in the past 24 hours, I doubt that comes as a Tamriel-sized surprise to you. That said, at this point, even my cold, jaded soul can’t help but say damn...

The story is too old to be commented.

I wasn't expecting that...

probz cause most mw players are on console :)

I think overall Skyrim is aimed at a slightly more mature audience than COD and the vast majority of pc players fall into that bracket, really glad the games getting awesome sales as well as reviews :)

I don't think so.

I know both console and PC gamers like to think of themselves as more mature than the other, but the sad truth is most PC gamers act like most Console gamers--no matter their age or station, they act like 6-year-old twats.

The only "mature" group of gamers out there is the group that only refers to themselves as "gamers." No PC or console prefix--no hardcore or casual prefix, either.

Well said, some of the pc crowd make the whole bunch seem like utter trolls.
Same goes for console gamers.

OT: got skyrim off steam myself. Impressive numbers, well done bethesda!

"I know both console and PC gamers like to think of themselves as more mature than the other, but the sad truth is most PC gamers act like most Console gamers--no matter their age or station, they act like 6-year-old twats."

Well on average, PC gamers are around 24-35 years old, and a have higher disposable income. Also our taste differ, pc gamers like hard more complete experiences, ie: The Witcher games, Stalker games, and Strategy games like Civ. It's not that we think we are more mature, it's that by and large, you're dealing with a older gamer with differing taste. That's why you see that giant disparity between MW3 and Skyrim.

Not surprising. Mw3 is not optimized for PC, elder scrolls is. What i really want see are the console stats.

MaxMurdoch3512d ago

neither is optimized for pc. what are you talking about?

slyrunner3512d ago (Edited 3512d ago )

I dont know why you have disagrees ,they are both console ports....They run great, dont get me wrong, but there are times (with 2 580s) where skyrim is using 30 percent of the gpu and on open worlds, it sometimes comes to 50 (sometimes 40). And cod is a stright up console port, the graphics still look like launch titles. these are with the nivida beta drivers, sooo yeah, either they need more patches or they are diffidently optimization for the PC. A true pc title has the latest tech and looks. If this game were truly testing my PC, the usage of my card should be at 70 at least! Yet that could be a driver problem, but as of now, all my other games are running at top speed.!

That is pretty amazing. Didn't think the game would topple MW3. But will it sell more though?

It's an interesting statistic for PC gaming but for the whole gaming community, not really.
