    Steam Sets New Concurrent User Record Just Because They Could

    Steam is off to a strong start in 2024.

    You would think that new concurrent user records might have been set during the big Steam Winter Sale, which ended just earlier this week. You would think that, but apparently you would be wrong. Instead, a new concurrent user record was set by Steam on a weekend in which there are no sales, no Steam Fests, or really anything else truly notable going on.

    On the morning of January 7, 20224, Steam set a new concurrent user record....

    About 30 years ago, Microsoft added the Windows key to keyboards. Chances are extremely high that the keyboard you're using on your computer has that Windows key on it. Hell, it might even have two Windows keys on it like mine does. Sorry Mac users with your Options key, this news does not apply to you.

    Microsoft is apparently not satisfied with the classic keyboard anymore, because they are about to introduce a new key dedicated...

    Steam No Longer Supports Windows 7, 8, and 8.1

    If you haven't moved on, it's long past time you did.

    Microsoft stopped officially supporting Windows 7 for regular users in 2020 and Windows 8.1 support ended in 2023. At best, you've had a year to update to a newer version of Windows. At worst, you've had four years. You should have moved to Windows 10 or Windows 11 by now if you are online at all with those operating systems. Years of no security updates is bad enough, but this week it just got worse.

    by Shawn Zipay
    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms. Just this week, those rumors were given more substance from a number of sources that say games such as Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Hi-Fi Rush, and even Gears of War could end up on PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
