Valve founder Gabe Newell has shrugged off Microsoft’s announcement that 3 million Xbox One consoles were sold last year, using the opportunity to remind everyone just how many of us have Steam accounts.
It follows Microsofts announcement that it shifted some 3 million Xbox One consoles in 2013.
CVG reports that during a Q&A session at CES 2014, an audience member asked Newell what he thought of the milestone, and if the company’s Steam Machines line-up could reach the same figures.
He replied, “Well, it’d take a while for them to catch up. I mean, we’re at 65 million,” touting the amount of users currently signed up to Steam.
