Steam is now 65 million users strong

Steam is now 65 million users strong

October 30, 2013 | By Kris Ligman




Valve has announced that its popular Steam distribution platform --now home to over 3,000 games and software titles -- has surpassed 65 million users, marked by a 30 percent growth in active accounts in the last 12 months.

"As the platform grows, our job is to adapt to the changing needs of both the development communities," stated Valve president Gabe Newell. "In the coming year, we plan to make perhaps our most significant collaborations with both communities."

Now in its 10th year, Steam holds a dominant position in digital distribution on PC, Mac and Linux, and its Greenlight feature has proven successful in getting many littler-known independent titles in front of a large audience. Valve plans to hold its first developer conference in early 2014, and Newell has spoken on the company's intention to make Steam a truly open platform. On the product front, Valve revealed the first hardware to further its push into the living room space, Steam Machines and the Steam Controller.

"The main goal of Steam has always been to increase the quality of the user's experience by reducing the distance between content creators and their audience," said Newell.
