I would be shocked if Steam sells such a service to anyone. It just wouldn't be worth it for them to engage in such a low revenue venture.

On a side note before steamspy came out I made a much more accurate version of it that queried a random sample of like 10 million users a day and extrapolated how much money every game made every day and then we used it to buy like 40 underperforming indie games.

It was actually really hard to get sql to handle that many writes per second and I ended up building a server just to do it.

I even looked at selling my system and took some meetings with data firms and it just doesn't have enough value. I'm sure valve already knows that it isn't worth much.
