Steam: New online record has been set!

The internet sales platform Steam currently experiences a heyday in terms of its user count. The record of users that were logged in at the same time, set in this year's January, was about 6.6 million. Last weekend a new maximum has been reached. On the 1st of December, 7.190.578 people used the online service, played one of the various games using the platform, or were at least logged in at the same time. Whilst some expected the user count to drop in the near future due to the next-gen-consoles, they're experiencing the exact opposite right now. A possible explanation to the current upswing can be found looking at the holidays, Thanksgiving being one of them. Furthermore, Steam's autumn sale should have a strong influence: The lowered prices provide attractive offers to potential customers.

Some information regarding the distribution of the users can be found on the official website. Accordingly, the action-real-time-strategy-game "Dota 2", which is developed and published by Valve, attracts most of the users, having about 400.000 users playing simultaneously. This is followed by "Counter Strike: Global Offensive", "Team Fortress 2", "Football Manager 2014" and "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" with today's peak at 69.508 on rank five. The multiplayer of "Call of Duty: Ghosts" just reached rank 13, whilst "Counter Strike" and "Counter Strike: Source" are still within the top 10, even after several years.

Im not surprised at all plenty of old dota players moved from w3 to dota2 so it was just a matter of time for setting up new record another reason i would say is putting great emphasis on indie games. more and more people look for these games

My steam account has been registered since like 2003-2004, that's the only thing I'm proud of I remember the launch day of Half-Life 2, was awesome!
