Kicking off their Steam Developer
, Valve offers a breakdown of some Steam
subscriber and sales
statistics showing the growth of their online service over last year:
kicked off its first-ever Steam Dev Days Conference by announcing the continued
growth of Steam, a leading platform for PC, Mac, and Linux software. In
addition, Valve detailed Steam's 2013 geographic performance to the more than
1,200 Dev Days attendees.
In the trailing three months the number of active Steam accounts jumped 15%, to
75 million from 65 million (announced October 2013). The growth was realized
during a busy holiday release season and Steam's Pre-Holiday and Holiday sales.
In addition, members of the Steam publishing team gave attendees a geographic
breakdown of Steam's 2013's sales revenue. While the data showed a virtual tie
between North America (41%) and Europe (40%) for the lion's share of Steam's
global activity, Russia and Brazil realized the largest year over year growth
(2013 vs. 2012) as individual countries, respectively increasing 128% and 75%.
