Valve has announced that over 65 million users are now actively using Steam, a rise of 30 percent from this time last year.

“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,” Valve boss Gabe Newell explained. ”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.”

2013 has seen the introduction of Family Sharing, Steam Trading Cards, Early Access promotions, and Linux Support for the service. So what does the future hold for Steam? Well Valve plans to take a stride into gaming hardware in 2014 with the launch of Steam Machines, it’s new operating system SteamOS, and the launch of a Steam Controller.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
