Steam Sets New Record for Concurrent Users – Over 10 Million Steam Users Online Simultaneously

And it was to be expected. Thanks to Steam’s Steam Monster Summer Sale, Valve’s distribution service has managed to hit a new record for concurrent users. As we can see, over 10 million Steam users were online simultaneously today.

According to Steam’s graphs, DOTA 2 was the most played game today as it peaked at almost 850K gamers. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive comes second and in the third place we find GTA V (according to the peak numbers, not the current ones) and in the fourth place we find the recently released dino survival title, ARK: Survival Evolved. Despite its performance issues, this game has managed to 80K gamers, surpassing other games like The Witcher 3, Skyrim and Team Fortress 2.

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.
