Steam conference kicks off with a ... bang?

Steam’s two day developer conference in Seattle – the home of all the gargantuan developer’s crazy shenanigans – is already starting to provide a good deal of headlines. In the opening presentation, Valve has revealed that the number of active Steam accounts since October 2013 has soared from 65 million to 75 million. The increase has been put down to the success of the regular Steam holiday and pre-holiday sales.
Interestingly, the geographical performance of Steam sales was also outlined. Europe and North America remain the biggest revenue makers for the digital distribution client, but the company showed that the largest year on year growth for individual countries was realised in Brazil (75% year on year) and Russia (128%) last year. Oceania, according to this image from Rock Paper Shotgun, accounts for 5% of sales worldwide.
Gabe’s quest to conquer all, it seems, is moving ahead just fine.
