I Used to be the [H] News Guy

If you're curious about how PC gaming is doing on Valve's Steam platform, give this article a read. It summarizes the data seen by the Steam Spy tool, which is based on techniques developed by Ars Technica's Steam Gauge project.
The information in this article was gathered with the help of the tool Steam Spy that Ive developed. Steam Spy acts a bit like an automated exit poll - it queries random user profiles to then extrapolate this data and create a whole picture. This method has its limitations, but it is pretty accurate for owners data and usage patterns.
