Steam users piled on the service over the weekend as a massive blow-out of deals took the Steam Summer Sale out with a bang, bringing over eight million users online at the same time and breaking the service's previous records.
While PC gaming remains expensive and cumbersome for console-dedicated gamers, it's hard not to take a look at the Steam storefront and find a few games your laptop can run just fine and I suspect that's exactly what happened in this case.
The Steam & Game Stats page displays current users and a persistent peak statistic for comparison. Even at the time of this posting, several hours after the peak, more than seven million users are online.
Were you one of 8 million on Steam this weekend? If so, what were you playing? I bought a few games while they were on sale, including a trio of Assassin's Creed games I used to own on console. Here's hoping Steam continues to grow and evolve its service.
