Earlier today, Steam peaked at 7,190,578 concurrent users, a
new record for the service. Just about a year ago, in November, the number of users
was at 6 million, and that had represented 300% growth acceleration over the month.

The sudden jump in users may be explained by the holiday
sale, and the competition against the launch of the next-gen consoles. Dota 2 is the most
popular title on Steam, drawing 542,906 concurrent users today. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive follows
with 93,905 peak users. Skyrim, Football
Manager 2013, and Sid Meier’s Civilization V
are also among the popular
titles. The popularity of Steam is expected to grow with the release
of Steam Machines next year.

Hi! I'm Sam. I like video games. A lot. I'm also known to frequent conventions in cosplay and attend metal concerts. When I'm not painting, I like to lift heavy at the gym. I do enjoy long walks at the jersey shore and oreo milkshakes. Die-hard Flyers fan. Feel free to talk to me, I don't bite!
