Steam saw six million users logged in at the same time over the weekend, helped along by Steam’s current sale. The last time Valve’s marketplace hit this kind of tally was in January when it hit five million concurrent users. Get the facts below.

Kotaku took the above snap of Steam’s weekend activity, in which over six million people were logged into the service concurrently. They may not have all been playing at the same time, but the figure is impressive regardless.

File this away in the ‘PC gaming is not dead you twonk’ ammo stash for the next time someone gives you crap for playing PC titles.
