The Steam service is currently down worldwide, just in time to prevent my Clan from meeting up on Modern Warfare 2 - sooo annoying.

 

Looking at the posts on https://downdetector.com/status/steam this problem is affecting all users with no one able to login to access their content.

 

Fortunately MW2 is the only online game I have therein, and the few offline games I have can be played without internet connectivity.

 

This serves as a good demonstration of what could happen if game streaming services become more popular, namely one outage and no games for anyone.

 

Anyway, this is mostly a PSA but if anyone knows more or finds out the cause before I do then I shall be most appreciative of a heads up. :)

Maybe that's due to the summer sale?

Quite possibly, many of the people on DownDetector were complaining about being cut off mid purchase or being unable to access their newly purchased games.

 

One would have hoped that such occurrences could ne negated in this day and age, particularly when the main objective of Steam is to sell games en mass to the masses. :teethhappy:

Eh, steam almost always goes down the first evening that a big sale starts.

Been like that for years, and they've yet to learn from it.
