There was once a time when many of the big game developers said that Valve's Steam gaming network would never succeed and that no one wanted to buy a digital copy of a videogame. Fastforward a few years and Valve has just announced that Steam now has a record breaking 65 million users accessing and playing games on its platform.

Over the last year, Steam has seen over 15 million new accounts registered which equates to a rise of about 30-percent over the previous year. With 65 million users, Steam is now a bigger social and gaming platform that Microsoft's Xbox Live service. Sony's PlayStation Network is still larger with about 110 million users though. With SteamOS and Steam Machines coming in 2014, it appears that only the sky is the limit for what Steam can grow to in the next 12 months.
