Steam Reaches Five Million Concurrent Users just Days into the New Year

Steam has recently ended its holiday sale, but that did not seem to have an effect on the amount of gamers logging in to the service. Steam recently reached five million concurrent users just days into the new year, most likely thanks in no small part to the big-name titles in the holiday sale. As you might have guessed, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has the most gamers playing it currently, perhaps even some new ones due to the discount it had during the sale. Skyrim has been the most popular game on Steam since the game's launch on November 11th, with other huge titles, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, coming close but never really challenging Skyrim for the top spot. Five million users on Steam at one time is no small feat, and just goes to show how popular the digital distribution platform has become.
