Steam Continues Rapid Growth
Valve kicked off its first-ever Steam Dev Days Conference by announcing the continued growth of Steam. In the trailing three months the number of active Steam accounts jumped 15%, to 75 million from 65 million.
In addition, members of the Steam publishing team gave attendees a geographic breakdown of Steam’s 2013′s sales revenue. While the data showed a virtual tie between North America (41%) and Europe (40%) for the lion’s share of Steam’s global activity, Russia and Brazil realized the largest year over year growth as individual countries, respectively increasing 128% and 75%.
