Steam Passes 65 million User Milestone



/ 4 years ago

Steam

In a recent press release by Steam they revealed that they can now say that they’ve passed the 65 million user landmark. Steam claim that over the past 12 months they have seen a 30% growth in the number of active accounts. Steam’s success can largely be attributed to the fact it offers a wide selection of over 3000 games and software titles across many different platforms – PC, Mac and Linux, while you can even pick up the Steam chat and shop client for iOS and Android. With the launch of SteamOS and Steam Big Picture mode over the last year it is likely that Steam will only get more popular.

“The main goal of Steam has always been to increase the quality of the user’s experience by reducing the distance between content creators and their audience,” said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. “As the platform grows, our job is to adapt to the changing needs of both the development and user communities. In the coming year, we plan to make perhaps our most significant collaborations with both communities through the Steam Dev Days and the Steam Machines beta.”

Good going Gaben and roll on the Christmas sale!

    while trying to not sound like a steam fan boy, there is a reason that they’re arguably the biggest name in PC gaming.
    They have a quirky, consumer focused approach and generally admit when they do something that didn’t work as planned.
    They experiment when others sit still.
    They champion the idea that DRM can be good, if done properly and benefits the consumer.

    I must be one of the original users and the only thanks I’ve got so far is a 7 year membership badge. Lol.
