Steam Breaks 7 Million Concurrent Users, One Million More Than This Time Last Year

Recommended Posts

Original PCGamesN Source

 

According to Steam's stats page the peak for today was 7,190,525 at once. Last year, on November 26, 2012, the concurrent peak hit 6 million at once. That's a growth of 1 million constant users over one year (plus a few days). This comes just one month after Steam reached the milestone of 65 million registered users, rising over Xbox Live for the first time. (Source: IGN)

 

I couldn't find any solid, recent numbers on the concurrent peaks of PSN and Xbox Live. If anyone has sources for those I'll add them to this post.

It's also important to note that Steam accounts are free, all it requires is a PC and Steam running to be counted as part of the concurrent users (not that that should detract from the fact that it's still 7 million users).

I agree,  though consoles still can be used to watch netflix and other "non-gaming" services.  Still amazing to watch tournaments through steam or even through the games themselves like Dota 2 and CS:GO.  

 

A growing database for sure, that will be fun to pick apart for silly metrics.

      The Steam version of FlatOut is the v1.0 version. This is the v1.1 patch for FlatOut that works with the Steam release. GOG is already patched to v1.1, and does not need this patch.
      Originally posted by Clya900, the patch was missing 2 files are now included in this download, patch1.bfs, and patch.ini. Without these files, the game would fail to load, and shows a Runtime error. The game now has been tested on the Steam version, and works perfectly fine.

      As reported earlier this week by Bleeping Computer, ArsTechnica and other sources, a security researcher found a vulnerability that allows to gain full access to the target computer through elevated privileges, which could be exploited by malicious game creators. According to the articles and included researcher statements, Valve have rejected two researchers' attempts to get rewarded for reporting the issue through the HackerOne platform on the basis of being out of scope and allegedly requiring physical access to the device.
      The researches decided to go public as the result.
      Since then, Valve appear to have patched the Steam client but only in the beta as of today.
      Update: On August 13, the main client was also updated to patch the vulnerability.
      Update 2: Bypassing the fix is possible.

      Classic games The Lion King (1994) and Disney's Aladdin (1993) have been delisted from Steam without so much as a word. 
      Thankfully GOG.com have given a short warning of just over 24 hours in this forum post announcement :
      Another Disney game, The Jungle Book, has been delisted from Steam but still available from GOG.com - who knows if more Disney games will be delisted in the future?

      DuckTales Remastered is going be removed from all digital storefronts including Steam on August 8th, according to this official tweet from Capcom USA:
      This gives us barely over one day's notice to quickly snap up this game for the last time on Steam. Luckily Steam keys should continue to be available on official resellers like Gamesplanet where it is conveniently on a 75% flash sale. Make sure to buy a piece of history before they run out of keys!
