If you are majorly a PC gamer, then the concept of Steam shouldn't be alien to you. In fact, it's one of the places that you frequent the most in your pursuit of finding new games and players. And now, thanks to its dedicated users, it seems the company currently experiences more than 8 million users simultaneously.
With the latest outages involving both PSN and Xbox Live, it seems like Steam has been doing some good business. In fact, this highly popular digital platform from Valve has managed to hit a new record for concurrent users. As of December 27, the company managed to have over 8 million Steam users online simultaneously.
If you take a look at the graph, it shows 8,156,455 online Steam users for the specified day. While this is one of the most major number of concurrent users that you will ever see, there's now a chance that the company might actually go ahead and hit the 10 million milestone. The image graph was recently shared by NeoGAF member 'fluffydelusions'.
As you can see from the graph, it seems like both DOTA 2 and Counter Strike: GO stand out as the most played games currently. It also offers a brief knowledge on how popular Skyrim still is, while also finding out that Arma 3 has somehow managed to better other triple-A titles like Far Cry 4 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in terms of numbers.
In other news, the Steam Holiday Sale, which began on December 18, is in its tenth day and already making quite the noise. The sale runs until January 2 and there's still time to pick up few of the best gaming titles in every genre for the year. For example, yesterday's super deals for the same featured Transistor for $6.80, Dishonored for just $5, with the popular Tomb Raider that was set to go on sale for the next 48 hours for just $4.
