New Concurrent User Record For Steam Achieved Today

While there’s an easy pun to be made about the platform and steam locomotives, cheapening this achievement would be a disservice to the game distribution platform PC enthusiasts have come to love. On the last day of Steam’s holiday sale, Steam surpassed its previous record – set only on June 29th of 2014 – of 8.02 million concurrent users by drawing in a whopping extra half-million: 8.5 million users were on to make sure they were getting the best deals in the PC gaming world. At this rate, it’d be surprising if this year’s summer sale doesn’t bring in a new record as well.
