Yep, Steam has just announced that they’ve hit 65 million accounts and yet it’s amazing that every few months we see an article about how consoles are killing PC gaming and that PC gaming is dead or dying. If you look at Xbox Live it’s only got about 48 million, sure that’s a lot but 65 million is a lot more than 48 million. I don’t think PC gaming is going anywhere really and I think the naysayers just post the articles for link bait and to stir up controversy.

"The main goal of Steam has always been to increase the quality of the user’s experience by reducing the distance between content creators and their audience," said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. "As the platform grows, our job is to adapt to the changing needs of both the development and user communities. In the coming year, we plan to make perhaps our most significant collaborations with both communities through the Steam Dev Days and the Steam Machines beta."
