The news you might have missedI've spent the last three weeks getting married, going on a honeymoon, diving The Great Barrier Reef and getting The Bends. It seems a lot went on while I was gone, but rather than spam your RSS, Twitter and Facebook feeds with a dozen new articles, I thought a summary of those stories would be best, prior to business as usual.

Valve reports record year for SteamWhile 2011 saw sales of boxed games decline yet again, by 7 percent in the UK as example, digital sales continued to soar. Game sales increased by more than 100 percent for the seventh straight year on Steam, delivering 780 Petabytes of data to gamers worldwide.

PC gaming booming, Steam hits 5 million concurrent usersIt has been pointed out that Steam hit 5 million simultaneous users this morning. That's a new record, set with a substantial margin. Last September Steam set its previous record with 4 million users online at the same time. Comparatively, for the sake of fan-boy arguments, the highest number of concurrent players on Xbox LIVE was 3.3 million users on November 8, 2011. Of course, these numbers don't account for all PC gamers, just those on Steam at that moment. A breakdown reveals that the most played game at the time...
Green Man Gaming sales beginSteam's holiday sales may be over, but Green Man Gaming's have just begun. Rising in popularity, this relatively new digital distribution channel kicked things off with 20,000 free copies Sniper: Ghost Warrior, subsequently breaking their site for a short time - but we're really not sure why, as the game is dreadful.

The sale runs until the 14th of January, so...

Sharing the sentiment of EA in their official response to the refusal of classification, the e-mail from Origin states "We’re sorry to inform you that we’ve received notice of the Australian Government’s decision to not give a rating for our upcoming game Syndicate, which means EA isn’t allowed to publish and sell this game in the country."

JB HI-FI then went on to launch their "Direct Import" store online for digital SLR camera products, citing inflated prices by Australian suppliers as the reason.
Harvey Norman is the next in line to send a strong message about pricing in Australia, with Gerry Harvey hypocritically announcing www.harveynormandirectimport.com, which sells imported console games at heavily discounted prices. I say...
