There's nothing like a Steam sale to remind us how not-dead or un-unwell PC gaming is. Just as it did this time last year, Steam's holiday sale helped the Windows, Mac, and Linux client reach a new milestone: more than 7 million users logged in at the same time.
Last year's milestone was 6 million
, and our often unerring grasp of rudimentary math tells us that's a rise of 1 million across the year. Bear in mind that's concurrent users; the total number of registered Steam accounts surpassed 65 million
at the end of October.
Speaking of Steam sales, there's still time to pick up the weekend's new deals
, with discounts from upon high
for the likes of Torchlight 2
, The Wolf Among Us
, Metro: Last Light
, The Witcher 2
, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
, Shadowrun Returns,
and pa-lenty more.
