Despite what people argue every other day, this proves PC gaming is not dead.
Valve has announced that Steam has passed the six million mark for concurrent users. The Stats page peaked at 6,046,442 users with free-to-play title Dota 2 attracting the most players. Other top games include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Assassin’s Creed 3, Football Manager 2013, Team Fortress 2 and Counter Strike. The Steam Autumn Sale is said to have boosted these numbers from everyday deals with discounts up to 75%.
Earlier this year, Steam’s concurrent user base surged to five million after last year’s Christmas sale. The figure is expected to increase during the Winter sale mentioned by Secret of the Magic Crystal creator Tamas Bako last week.
