33m of us play via Steam every single day, says Valve - and that number's still growing

Valve Corporation's Steam continues to assert in its dominance in the PC market. Tens of millions of players flock to the platform each month to play their PC games, the actual stat coming in at 67 million monthly users, according to the information that was presented at the conference.

Another big number included in Valve's presentation was 27 million. Since January 2016 Valve reports that Steam has grown a total of 27 million players which divides down to 1.5 million new players per month over the course of 18 months. Overall, Valve had 125 million registered users by the company's latest count.

When it comes to Steam sales by region, 34 percent sales came from North America while Western Europe accounted for 29 percent.

A user boom in Asia seems to be the key contributor, with 17 percent of Steam's global sales now made in China, Korea, and Japan. Valve is a private company, so we don't know how much it is worth exactly, but estimates put it in the billions.

Steam has just revealed a load of fresh stats concerning the popularity of the gaming platform, showing that it has way more users than Xbox Live - and nearly as many as PlayStation Network (PSN). It recently hit 500,000 concurrent users, surpassing CS:GO and only behind the free-to-play behemoth Dota 2 on the concurrent user charts.
