The master race continues to strenghten its numbers. In future, Steam OS will also provide a platform upon which even the stupid and inept console children can play games in the best hardware without console restrictions.

Do PC gamers often feel the need to insult everyone? I mean I starting to think PC gamers are the same as CoD Gamers. They use different words, but the venom is the same.

#3 Edited by Fishsticklover (247 posts) -

How can you call yourself a master race when 99% of your race has a horrible low spec computer? Infact next-gen consoles are better than most Hermit's PC's which means there is only one master race and that is the console master race.

PS: that number doesn't say much, i'm logged in on Steam as well, and i'm not even using it atm, it just starts up with Windows.

So 1/7 of your community actually plays games? That number is astoundingly low. Valve simply moved to the Steam Box because they want a part of the massive Console Market. Just like with every new indie dev on PC; Eventually they move to Consoles where the majority of gamers are. Even Amnesia's developer is producing SOMA on the PS4.

@clyde46: console gamers rarely unite. The term master race and calling console gamers idiots is a day to day activity from the hermit camp.

@-Unreal-: You truly are a cunt, anyway well done to Mr.Steam.

Its good to be the 1%. Also, since you are just "logged in", you'll know just how useless the Steam stats are.

You do realise that this is over twice as much as the concurrent record on a console ever right?

I guess that´s why so many previously console only developers are putting their games on the PC these days unlike in the past,they know steam/PC is where the money is these days and where some of the most popular and most played games in the world reside.

And lets´s not forget that this is steam alone lol.

Wrong. PC versions of games are virtually free as they make games through computers. Despite the fact that the games are pirated to hell and back on PC, it's still free revenue for them because it cost them virtually nothing to put it on PC as that's usually where the game is made. Nice try though. Have GTAV, yet? Yea, thought so.

lol GTA is really the only thing the desperate console fanboys like you have as ammo these days,but that path is really thorny for you fellas when you start mentioning the number of games that consoles don´t get as well,and its a much,much higher nuumber,so keep hailing the GTA V desperation until next year when you won´t have that argument anymore lol.

Who's embarassed? My point still stands. Every dev that started on PC ends up on Console because that's where the majority of users are. And I'm correct. Even the likes of DayZ will be appearing on PS4.

Sure will,gonna enjoy that on the PC,alongside the seminal and one of the very best(if not the) horror games ever made Amnesia The Dark Descent wich will never see a console release ever lol.

Also will be enjoying Dark Souls 2 quite a bit,as well as so many upcoming previously top console only titles than now are PC games as well,getting the best of both world is awesome,no wonder PC gaming is growing so much and as of last year was making over 20 Billion,more than all home consoles and handhelds combined,the devs know where the action is now,missing the PC is missing a lot of money.

Also,PC versions are virtually free? lol,you really know nothing of game development,unsurprisingly.

What I'm seeing is PC devs going to consoles and console devs going to PC.

Same as pretty much almost every dev that started console only now is on the PC as well aside from platform exclusives because PC gaming is growing uinsanely in the last few years so no console only developer that likes money wants to miss the train,plenty of them even already report how much more money some of their games are making compared to the console released of the same titles,and you say DayZ is coming tothe PS4? Dean just stated last week that nothing is confirmed and all depends on the sucess of the PC version and even if it´s very sucessful a console port will be dowscaled and not be on any console for a long time,but the funny part is that console devs are putting their games on the PC willingly but PC games to console isn´t like that,it´s the hardware manufacturers that aproach them waiving cash so iobviously any sane person would want to make more money,but they don´t go running after the consoles like console devs go these days to the PC like there´s no towmorrow and all by themselves,that says a lot.

So no,your point doesn´t stand.

the x1 and ps4 won't even dream of reaching 7m concurrent users even at the end of this generation. console gaming has fallen so much behind in the past few years all pc gaming needed was a place for the insane amount of pc gamers in the world to gather... steam gave us that.

People leave their pc's on all the time. If console users left their consoles on as much as pc users do then the concurrent users would be significantly higher for console.

Sure,but you can leave your PC on without being logged into steam,and again like I said let´s not forget that this is steam alone,when you add the number from origin wich has for instance the most played version of BF4 being the only version almost always above 100k concurrent players,add that the still very high BF3 numbers and the overall servive wich has over 30 million users and the number on the PC platform grwos significantly, Oh wait,there´s also Blizzard´s Battle.net with super popular games like WoW,SC2,HS and D3 wich overall have millions of players logging in everyday further grwoing the PC overall numbers way more high up...and then there´s all the games that have the clients of their own and not available on any service other than their own websites such as Minecraft and the millions that play it(about 13 million copies sold on PC) or the most played game in the world,League of Legends wich has almost as many active accounts than the whole xbox live lol,iRacing etc...when you add those numbers all together,cuncurent or not no console comes even remotely close. And then there´s GOG,etc...

Steam alone has these amazing numbers and it´s all but one of many services on the PC while the stats from ps and xbla reflect that userbase overall,and lets not forget that sony has boasted of having so many millions of accounts that in the end...also include PC games like Everquest or Planetside lol.

Steams default setting is to log the user in automatically. Why would a steam user want to log out of steam?

No way to prove this but logic dictates that most origin users are on steam as well. Every pc gamer I know, including me, uses both. Same could be said for Battlenet as well.

Also remember that most multiplat games still sell better on console. Record breakers are always on console. It's very likely that theres more ps 3's and 360's than pc's capable of playing multiplats. And multiplats is what the guy i was responding to was mentioning.

Although I love Puckhog being schooled, this man speaks the truth. My steam and many other people's start when windows starts... i am not "concurrently" doing anything with steam atm. the REAL concurrent users are "Those playing a game now" which is a fraction of what those figures suggest. yes some people leave consoles on, but far less... because they barely do anything else other than play films and some crap apps you can use on your phone.

That being said, pleanty of games not represented by steam, the three major missing games World of Tanks, World of Warcraft and League of Legends players, even minecraft players are not represented by steam let alone the thousands of "lesser popular" titles.

Dota 2 however through steam gives you a good idea of the popularity of top-popular PC games... often peaking over 600k ... only Cod ever comes close or halo and thats only for a month or 2.... dota 2 has been out 2 years. league has even higher numbers, though no specifics lets say 800-1000k. and world of tanks. WoW probably has a couple 100ks.

and consoles think their games are bigger... laughable, only cod....

Well steams concurrent peak is 7 million+, and the peak for DOTA 2 is only 543K.

How can you call yourself a master race when 99% of your race has a horrible low spec computer? Infact next-gen consoles are better than most Hermit's PC's which means there is only one master race and that is the console master race.

PS: that number doesn't say much, i'm logged in on Steam as well, and i'm not even using it atm, it just starts up with Windows.

Its good to be the 1%. Also, since you are just "logged in", you'll know just how useless the Steam stats are.

We need to start a new group called the 1%ers :P. I am also a member.

That's pretty darn cool. Steam is a beast of epic proportions, rightly so too.

Always good to see the PC crowd plentiful!

The Steam numbers are pretty good. Especially if you compare a very popular game for consoles like Battlefield 4 which PC usually has more players playing concurrently. There was 115k on PC VS like 65k on Xbox 360. Hell even Skyrim is still hitting 60-70k concurrent (garuntee that its not even close on console) as well as games like PoE and Warframe hitting 20k concurrent is pretty impressive.

Add in LoL, Blizzard games + other MMOs (SWTOR, FFXIV, GW2 etc.,) plus many others and the PC gaming community is huge. Compare it to console where shooter games reign supreme (CoD,BF4 ETC., are their big number games (and PC BF4 is probably 50% larger then the consoles) it really shows how much PC gaming is growing.

Hell in Killzone Shadow Fall the multiplayer is a wasteland like 2k players, a indie game I bought called Chivalry had a bit over 5k when I compared them today.
