Steam sets a new record of concurrent players in less than a month

On January 9th, Steam set a new record with 28 million concurrent players. And, in less than a month, Valve’s service was able to break that record and set a new one.

Earlier today, Steam had 29,201,174 players online at the same time. As such, we can safely assume that Valve’s service will surpass the 30 million goal in 2022.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
