Mayday Mayday... STEAM is actually completely broken!?!?(14 posts)
Yea sometimes getting no connection but guessing it;s a problem on their part. Maybe hl3 incoming? :P
Yeah.. it's back up now
Just like PC gaming
Steam has more up time than XBL and PSN put together. Go troll somewhere else Backup.
I was reading somewhere that steam servers have accumulated more user uptime than many commercial networks owned by very large companies, actually.
Well, we can't say we didn't expect this. It was only a matter of time before this shit went down. XBL FTW.
It's been said, but I'll say it again: Steam has had a more consistent uptime than PSN and XBox Live COMBINED. Many times over. Everyone has to do maintenance eventually, that Steam has had such consistent, unerring uptimes for so long is absolutely incredible considering that they also have more traffic to contend with than PSN and XBLA combined, too.
You may think that that's hyperbole, but then consider that most PS3/360 games are bought on a disc, whereas ALL Steam games are downloaded from Steam servers. Of course, console vultures are going to leap on something like this as soon as it happens. You guys do have an incredible inferiority complex, after all. You don't see PC gamers making a fuss for all the many times that the XBLA and PSN have gone down, do you?
Isn't the highest point of users on steam at one time 5 million. Where as psn/Xbl have roughly 20-30 million on at once and have more active users then steam? Last I checked steam had 20 million unique users where psn has 96 million and Xbl had 40 million?
Correct me if I'm wrong because I did a quick search on it at work earlier.
"Well, we can't say we didn't expect this. It was only a matter of time before this shit went down. XBL FTW. "
I have nothing more to add to this stupid comment.

Another "my platform gamers is holier than thou" guy. Keep it up.
"unerring uptimes for so long is absolutely incredible considering that they also have more traffic to contend with than PSN and XBLA combined, too."
Steam has nowhere near as many users as PSN or XBL. Look it up, child, and stop making a fool of yourself.
you stupid console noobs who know nothing, I mean nothing about networking and servers. Go back to your box infront on your tv. Steam has to have enough band width for game purchases etc. a lot of xbl and psn is p2p in the communication side as is steam. 40million xbl users are logged in they're not using the same bandwidth as someone downloading a 10GB game. I don't need to link neither, I know enough about IT to know that Steam servers are better. Enjoy shitty next gen, we've been playing it for over a year now.
Wow, Lounds when did you become so....Troll like? I don't think you answered the question at all. And, I highly doubt there are 5 million users downloading 10 gb games every hour on the hour every day. Very much like PSN/XBL, Not even going to throw around my accomplishments in IT to tell you that you are being a bit Radical.
Guys I just purchased a game through Steam 2 days ago. The bandwith was fine, the game was delievered to my PC correctly and I am happy of the purchase.
I don't udnerstand this fuss that appears to me more made up against Steam than else. On top of it we have 1 title and no content.
Vg247 should just remove this thread.
Maybe at the time some users could not connect was perhaps for a server upgrade or clean up, or maintenance etc etc...
If anything Steam too need to take care of their hardware to deliver best content and connection possible.
I just connected right now as I am typing and all is fine and one of the best online game platform purchase I know so far.
