Steam Hits New Record of Over 14 Million Concurrent Users #Steam #DOTA2


PCGamesN has the story.

Quote:
Steadily climbing in concurrent users over the past few months, Steam has just hit its all time concurrent user record, topping out at 14,147,000 users at time of writing. This high was noted at 4:35PM GMT and is the first time Steam has ever registered over 14 million users. It almost went over that threshold on January 2, reaching just about 13,910,000 users before sinking back down as players logged off to go to bed.

As is expected the most played game at time of the record break was DOTA 2, registering 951,942 players. CS:GO was second, with 656,973 users and Grand Theft Auto V was third, measuring 116,230 players at its peak.

With Steam receiving a natural boost in users, thanks to more players on the service after Christmas and this being the first weekend off of the New Year, itís no surprise that the service has hit its all time high. The number only seems to be growing higher as I write this and more people come on for their Saturday night gaming, so expect concurrent user numbers to reach somewhere within the 14,200,000s by the end of peak time.

Wow, that's almost 1/10th the number of players playing GTAV on the PS4 right now! Way to go, Steam!

The PS4 sold 54 million units.

Steam has close to 150 million active users.

There are 114million GTA V players in the PS4 right now? I had no idea it was this huge.

Too much listening to Busta Rhymes will make people use that as a complement.

You can generally ignore the delusional ramblings of EA when it comes to anything PC related, he is probably butt hurt now that he has to upgrade his peasant boxes more regularly than an ordinary PC owner would replace their components.

Youndont need to listen to Busta to hear that. Just attend any inner city grade school.

On topic, I have to say that I bought less in the last year from Steam by a huge margin compared to years past.

A lot of people playing D3 right now.

I have to wait 15 min in a queue to play my single player game on an overloaded server that might drop me or a lag monster kill me

I hate this part.

I remember that there used to be a bit of a thrill to the queue 15 years ago. It was like lining up to be admitted on a theme park ride. I imagine thats lost it's luster by now.
