Steam is one of the largest digital distribution platforms of our time. With a 70% market share, support for over 20 languages and almost 1,500 games available, it has become an amazing achievement for Valve over the years.
Since its launch in 2003, over 35 million users have registered to the service and are using it – enjoying not only online multiplayer, but various titles from major studios like Bethesda, 2K, Rockstar and EA as well. Not to mention the large community and development of the platform for Mac OS X and Playstation 3.
If that isn’t enough to convince you how massive Steam has become, get a hold of this!
On January 2, 2012 a new milestone has been reached. Over 5 million users have been active simultaneously! That means over 5,000,000 people from all around the world have been using the service at the same time! Think Los Angeles, but bigger. Is that insane? Probably is, but it gets to show how much has computer technology and software altered and affected our lives in the past decade. Way to go Steam!
