[ Q ] Valve Steam stats


There are literally millions of people in the community that connect to Steam each month, so we compiled a couple of statistics for what has happened in the past year:

  • Steam has delivered approximately 10 million gigabytes of data since the first of the year. You could fill 125,000 80 GB hard drives with this data to make a line over 11 miles long. Not that you would want to, but the visual helps.
  • There have been a total of 50 billion player minutes in our multiplayer games since the start of the year. If a single person sat down to play on their own, it would take 2.28 million years to accomplish this. This is assuming that you're not planning on sleeping during this 2 million year stretch.


Если учесть, что Halflife2 и Counter Strike: Source имеют внутри естественные fail-safe-механизмы, которые не стимулируют играть бесконечно, то можно предположить, что для того же WoW цифры „игровых минут“ будут на порядок, а то и на два выше.
