Steam Passes 5 Million Concurrent Players Mark

Basking in the warm afterglow of a record week for Steam, in large part thanks to Skyrim which still stands as the fastest selling game in the service's history, comes the news that over five million users were logged into the service at once over the holidays.

The milestone was past at the end of last month, deep in sales season, but hit in again on January 2nd with a peak of 5,012,460 users. Skyrim has been easily the most played game on the service, with a lead doubling that of second place pretenders Team Fortress 2 and, today, Counter-Strike.

Thanks, PC Gamer.
