There is no denying the popularity of Steam, the digital distribution platform ran by Valve. Already this week we have seen more than five million concurrent users on Steam, and today Valve has released some more information on the service. Sales on Steam have grown by 100% for the seventh year in a row in 2011. There are over 1800 games available on Steam, 40 million registered users (though not all are active), and lastly, 780 petabytes of data have been downloaded by customers just in 2011. There have also been 19 million items traded, but Valve did not say how many of those were hats or items from the recent holiday sale. Four hundred of the games currently available on Steam make use of Steamworks, with 14.5 million copies being sold for a 67% increase over the total in 2010. Valve also plans to release a Big Picture UI mode that is designed to fit Steam to large screens, but did not state when that would be coming out.

And EA thinks they can make more money by releasing Origin exclusive games. LOL.
