Steam cracks under the weight of Christmas shoppers
Planning on buying something on Steam today? Well you are in for some bad news, as the Steam store seems to be having a few technical issues.
The issue seems to be contained to the store portion of Steam, so if you want to play games on your Steam library don’t worry you can go and play till your heart’s content. Unfortunately there has been no word from the official Steam Support twitter, but hopefully Valve are looking into fixing the effected Steam servers.
The reason for the store issue could be put down to a one day Christmas deal on the store, as Valve are giving away free copies of Left 4 Dead 2. I guess a free game is more than enough reason for so many people to go on Steam that the servers just crumble.
*Update: Steam is working again
