Steam Passes 30M Users

Valve announces that Steam has surpassed the 30 million account mark. Here's word on some of what this represents:

During the past 12 months the platform had year-over-year new user growth of 178%, pushing the total number of active accounts to over 30 million, with over 1,200 games now offered. Peak simultaneous player numbers were also up to over three million, with over six million unique gamers accessing Steam each day.

In addition to new user growth, Steam sales during the trailing 12 months increased by more than 200%, putting it on track for a sixth straight year of realizing over 100% year-over-year growth in unit sales. To meet this demand, the Steam infrastructure has been increased and now has ability to run at 400Gps, enough bandwidth to ship a digitized version of the Oxford English Dictionary 92.6 times per second.

30m active users, is a lot. I wonder what the attach rate is?

For a little context the 360 has sold ~41m units per Wikipedia, according to this page "Microsoft says about half the [XBL] service’s 25 million users paid an annual fee to play games online".
