Steam Passes 30 Million

Valve has reported in a recent press release that the popular digital distribution service is showing massive growth on all fronts. From its bug-infested days during the first Counterstrike, Steam has now grown to be a PC gaming giant. Here are the numbers:

Account Growth – Up 178%
Sales Growth – Up 200%
Total Games Offered – Over 1,200
Peak Simultaneous Users – 3 million users
Total Unique Users Per day – 6 million users

“Steam is on track to record the biggest year in its six year history,” said Gabe Newell, president of Valve. “The year has marked major development advances to the platform with the introduction of support for Mac titles, the Steam Wallet and in-game item buying support, and more. We believe the growth in accounts, sales, and player numbers is completely tied to this work and we plan to continue to develop the platform to offer more marketing, sales, and design tools for developers and publishers of games and digital entertainment”
