Steam Doubles Sales Seven Years Straight

In addition to all the astounding data above, Valve gave further reason to drop your jaw. In 2011 ALONE, Valve served up 780 PETABYTES of data to consumers. That's double 2010.

2012 and the future seem to be geared for even bigger Steam figures as the company is preparing to launch "Big Picture Mode" which will see Steam support for even more screens in your home. [Insert Valve-time joke here]
