Steam Hits New Record for Simultaneous Users

 

While PSN and Xbox live failed to stay online over Christmas, Steam hits a new record high for concurrent users. On December 28th Steam had over 8.3 Million simultaneous users on it's service, showing that the service has continued to grow in popularity.

In total Valve recorded 8,357,254 online users on the Steam Client yesterday, beating the peak figure of 7,678,758 recorded last December. This is even higher than DSOG's reported 8,156,455 online  users.

Looking at the pictures from DSO Gaming's new post we can see that many of Valve's own titles make up the top of their most played list, at least as the time of the screenshot, with DOTA 2, Counter Strike: GO and Team Fortress 2 making up the top 3 of the most played list.

Without openly shared data from Sony or Microsoft regarding the number of current users we simply cannot compare each platforms in terms of active users. However it is doubtful that either platform has a user-base anywhere near the size of steam.

It is also surprising to still see Skyrim in the list of most played Steam games, beating out even more recent AAA titles like Far Cry 4, that being said Far Cry 4 is available on platforms other than Steam so Steam's value only represent an unknown fraction of Far Cry 4 players on PC.
