http://store.steampowered.com/stats/ shows users logged in at 4.6 million but if it add up people actually in game then it's about 400k give or take some in game actually playing as it fluctuates.

You've "Told us" twice, but you haven't provided a number. No FPS game that is anticipated solely for it's multiplayer will surpass it's first day peak hour. Period. It doesn't happen. People get tired of them very quickly and there is always another one around the corner. And despite the huge hype about first day figures Blops 2 still sold less than it's predecessors, because CoD is still, despite the hype, a dying franchise.

Since there is no official source as to how many people are logged in at any given time online, and I've been relying on other people I know to provide me with information, I'll pass on arguing in circles with you about those statistics. Though they're perfectly legitimate.

Because only these matter. The number of Xbox Live subscribers as of 3 months ago.
10 million less than Steam had a year ago.
Up 33% from the year before that..
The wiki reports 54 million accounts as of last month.

Steam has been well beyond XBL for years, and is rolling so far ahead into the distance it can't even be laughed at. Steam is just a fraction of the PC gaming community.

We're done.

not going to even bother, but do I have to take a picture to prove to you that there are more people online in a single game on xbox than all of the games on steam combine? rolleyes.gif

and there are only around 369k people give or take constant fluctuation online in games on steam at the moment.

Online population doesn't have jack to do with the number of people playing PC games, because we still have single player games that're worth a damn. And please take a picture, because unless you're damn good at photoshopping, it will be patently false. My sources are good.

Wanna compare game to game? Beat WoW.

You are perpetuating a malignant cyst of a rumor that benefits no one except any individual whose ego is assuaged by the falsehood of being a part of the chosen flock and any involved marketer who wishes to add a glowing chapter to their incredible resume. It is a mentality that marketers prey upon and use to manipulate you and people like you, and it disgusts me because you, as an individual, find no dismay in this.

sooooo.. you don't think that 362k of steam's users in game aren't sitting there either headscratch.gif there is a difference of the 4 million CURRENTLY logged into steam and the 362k +/- that are actually IN games.



don't be like that because you just got proven wrong. I don't know how else to explain it to you. Numbers of current active players in a single xbox game of black ops2 which means people who have their xbox loaded up with blackops2 at least sitting at the menu or playing OUT numbers steam's IN GAME users who have at least launched the game considering them "in game users"

Steam is the lobby. There are 4 million people in the lobby and playing. Both numbers are a combined number of the same population on both Steam and Blops 2. And beyond all of this, nothing you have said discounts the fact that the number of active Steam accounts is almost double that of XBox Live. If this is too hard to understand, I can just block you. I began discussing this thinking that just a smidge of rationality and basic understanding of mathematics was all that was necessary to understand what I was saying, and ended up wasting far too much of my time already on this very, very old yarn. I don't intend to waste any more.

i never said anything about number of total accounts rofl. I said that there are more people in blops2 on the 360 that there are people in game on steam. That's ALL i said. Feel free to re read the thread.

and no blackops2 is not a lobby like being logged into steam. xbl is the "lobby" like steam. we have no idea how many are sitting at the dashboard of an xbox like they have with steam running in background on PCs.

when it comes down to it. there are more people in blops2 on the 360 than there are people in all steam games currently IN GAME.

the end, feel free to also "block me" you really have nothing to contribute anyways especially when given proof of numbers of 1 simple game on xbox vs. steam in game users across all steam games.

the blatant attacks in this forum lately, particulary in the pc gaming section are becoming a plague. we are all on same team people

it is bigger. it does make more money. other than wow. what AAA pc game has made more money than a console game this generation and wow isn't even considered this generation technically other than it's expansions have been released in this generation. so we will consider that.

by all means I am not cracking down on pc. If you look at my avatar I don't play around. but I also know the difference between 520k and 360k of in game users.

I want pc to succeed more than anything, but as long as consoles are around, cheaper to a certain extent and more accessible it is just something we have to deal with and that's why I own and will own all consoles to have whatever accessible to me.

can we stop now?
