Steam's Store Went Down. Merry Christmas!

Steam's Store Went Down. Merry Christmas!

UPDATE - Looks like it's back. Skyrim and Deus Ex are now both available for under $US10. Merry Christmas!

Hope you weren't planning on buying - or in some cases playing - any new PC games today, because Steam's servers have either been down or crushed for much of the day. The service's support Twitter is silent - maybe it's got the day off - but you don't have to look far to see reports of people struggling to get online.

How's everyone's status been? I had a little trouble this morning (it's December 26 already here in Australia) but everything seems fine now OK now I can't access the store at all. We're still getting reports of downtime in the US and Europe though.

Most complaints seem to be concerning Steam's store and community features; the service's status page (at least when it loads, as it's on-and-off for me) still shows hundreds of thousands of people playing games.

The store, on the other hand...here's what the store page looks like for most:

I guess more people wanted a free copy of Left 4 Dead 2 than Valve were bargaining for...
