Steam Hits New Record For Concurrent Users – Over 8 Million Steam Users Online Simultaneously

While PSN and Xbox Live are down due to various DDoS attacks, Valve’s digital platform has managed to hit a new record for concurrent users. Yesterday, Steam had over 8 million Steam users online simultaneously, thus proving one more time how popular Valve’s digital platform actually is.

As we can see in the following graph, yesterday there were 8,156,455 online Steam users. That’s the biggest number of concurrent users we’ve ever seen, and we’re now wondering whether Valve will be able to push it to 10 million concurrent users.

Moreover, we can see that both DOTA 2 and CS: GO are the most played games currently (at least today). What’s also interesting is how popular Skyrim still is, and how Arma 3 has managed to top other triple-A titles like Far Cry 4 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Kudos to NeoGAF’s member ‘fluffydelusions‘ for sharing the graphs.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
