Steam sets new concurrent users record

Steam is a growing mammoth, it is once more proven. Over five million players have been spotted to have used the service simultaneously, PC Gamer writes, a new record for the Valve-operated business.

Skyrim‘s runaway success — looking at the player stats now, the RPG remains the most-played game by far — and all the holiday deals surely played their part in raising the bar.

Not a bad way to kick off the year, that’s for sure.
