Report reveals surprising Steam games usage secrets

Hayden Dingman | April 17, 2014
Ars Technica crawled Steam profile pages to give us the first comprehensive look at sales data from the notoriously reticent retailer. More details inside.

On the other hand, that makes it incredibly impressive that some indie games have sold over a million copies through Steam. That means they're selling fairly well even compared to the best-selling AAA games, and probably selling a comparable amount to most AAA games on the service.

Orland's Steam Gauge provides a fascinating glimpse into a service that's been inscrutable up until now, and I can't imagine Valve is too happy about it. Ars promises to release more data in the coming weeks, including a full look at how independent games are doing on the service. Until then, as I said, you can read the original full report here--it's well worth the read and even has pretty graphs. (Seriously, you should read it.)
